ENGLEWOOD, Fla. - Imagine this - you renew your license and when you finally get in the mail, the address is wrong. And not just wrong - intentionally vulgar.
The Florida State DMV notified Ashlee Lineberger of Englewood that her license was about to expire. So she sent $48 in the mail to have it renewed.
"They were prompt in sending it back, but when I got it back and opened it up, and just looked at the address, I was very shocked," Ashlee said.
Her name was correct. Her city and zip code were too. But her street address definitely was not. It read "EAT A**."
"I just remember her showing it to me and I was like, you've gotta be kidding me," her husband Charles said. "It's just funny."
Ashlee called the State DMV and hung up after being on hold for 35 minutes. So she went to her local DMV. "Even when I gave it to the lady at the DMV, she was shocked. She said 'I have to go show this to my manager, I can not believe this,'" Ashlee said.
They told her to fix it, she'd have to pay an additional $6.50. While she doesn't want to pay for their mistake, she knows she has to get it replaced. "Especially a mother of 3, if i were to get pulled over by a cop and show him my license, that's all I have to give him," Ashlee said.
She'll just have to deal with being the... butt of a few jokes for a while. "She could keep it, but we don't live on 'Eat A**' street," Charles said.
After WINK contacted the DMV, they told us they've opened an investigation to determine how this misinformation made its way onto Ashlee's ID. In the meantime, they are overnighting her a correct license at no charge.
