The 25-year-old was not to be found in the photo section of her driver's license. On renewing her license online, the Tennessee resident found her identification photo replaced by a picture of a chair. Soon, it was revealed the chair was the last photo mistakenly taken and saved to Dodd's file.
Jane Dodd did not have to experience the scary moment of looking at the identification photo in her driver's license because the 25-year-old was not to be found in the photo section of her license. On renewing her license online, the Tennessee resident found her identification photo replaced by a picture of a chair.
Many thought it to be a supernatural incident but the hopes were shattered as the explanation came forward. According to the officials, the chair was the last photo mistakenly taken and saved to Dodd's file at her last visit to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
"I was with my mom and we were going to eat lunch and I said, 'You need to see this, this isn't right.' The lady at the DMV did not really believe me when I was like, 'Hey, I need my license fixed.' Then she looked it up in the system and goes, 'Oh, I need my manager for this,'" Jane told.
The Depart of Motor Vehicles soon made an action to fix the mistake. Wes Moster, the director of communications, stated, "When the customer recently renewed her driver license online she received an image of a chair because that was the last picture taken on file. When the Department was made aware of her situation, we immediately made things right with the customer and provided her with a license with her actual photo and have addressed this situation internally."
The Tennessee resident found the whole incident funny. "My boss thinks it's funnier than anyone. I was at work Friday and he pointed to a chair outside of his office door and was like, 'I thought this was you, I waved at it this morning' and I was like, 'Thanks'," she said with amusement.
