Seriously. Its getting tiring.
I just went to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. To change my NewYork Id, and get my license again.
So the dudes is inputting all my information. Then Looks at me. Then looks back to his computer.
Then back again my way.
I asked him whats up. He replies "it says here, you have something in Illinois , " I laugh. I never been there..
He gives me a "hmmmmm" So Im like, Dude, cross check my social, you cant do a check by name alone.
He said he cant do that. Then after like a minute, hes like. Ok, never mind. I asked why. Hes like,
your name is popping in UTAH, and Massachusetts, and and CA, and..
I was like good lord, you know my name is common right?. He was like 'apparently"
Now this situation isn't so bad, but it happens, ALOT. When I went to comicCon with Tom and the rest of the guys, the clerk flatout said "we are holding on more info on Mr Ortiz, apparently you have a bench Warrant".. I was like WHAT?? come on. Tom and the rest smiled and giggled, but I could tell that it was a nervous giggle. Lol white people are so gullible :-p
This also happened when I came back from Italy, and pretty much happens anytime I have to show a passport. Its really getting tiring.
And its Scary. We all know this System by which we are governed, is faulty and loose. One mis-identification and I could be detained somewhere indefinitely. Haha fuck , just another reason to hate to travel.
I constantly have made jokes about changing my name, but lately Ive been giving it some serious thought.
lol, MindChamber Ortiz.
