Yep, usually get blank looks from TSA who think they're smart by saying that when I immediately say took a cab, shared ride shuttle van, hotel courtesy shuttle, chauffeured limo, friend/relative/SO dropped me off, or mass transit.

I wonder if they ask blind people for their driver's licenses...
Nothing suprises me any more.
This has nothing to do with TSA but with stupid people.

I had a new young bank manager telling me to get home and get a drivers license before she could id. me.
She didnot except a resident card or passport.

So if TSA ask me to get a drivers license i would not be suprised.

What do they expect from people who don't drive?
Yeah--a local bank, many years ago. They wouldn't accept my wife's non-driver's ID--they wanted to see a driver's license.

For me it was not a local bank. A big branch.

I had been in there several times. The cashier had id me before.

The end was that they called the branch that I had open the account with. They told them I was me.
Bank mangaer pissed off . But she could not do anything.

This was in Sherman Oaks,CA.

Somehow "expecting everyone to have a drivers license" mentality doesn't surprise me in the US when people expect everyone to drive a car.

If you don't have a car or have a drivers license, they look at you like you're an alien from Mars.

Oh Yes I have gone through that.

To add to it I dont like coffee or chocolate. Plus I am a vegeterian.

I have been told I am an alien and how can I live and survive.

Plus I am a walker. Only that makes a lot of people think I am very STRANGE.

Or they figure you lost it due to bad driving/DUI.

The blind people understand, those who simply can't correct enough (my wife usually scores 20/50) they don't.
