【看CP學英文】想到要拍證件照,常常令人一個頭兩個大。近日,一名美國田納西州女子拍出一張「史上最遜」的證件照,當她迫不及待取回新駕照時,只見原先應放大頭照的位置竟然出現一張椅子照片。

Most people are unhappy about their ID photos on official documents, but a Tennessee woman recently expressed her displeasure on social media after receiving her new driver’s license with the “worst ID photo” ever: an empty chair. 

根據CNN報導,來自田納西州希克曼縣的珍・多德 (Jane Dodd)於週四收到她補申請的新駕照。沒想到打開卻發現大頭照的地方,竟是一張藍色的椅子。

CNN reported that Jade Dodd from Tennessee, Hickman County, recently renewed her driver’s license and received it in the mail on Thursday. Expecting to see her photo on the ID, she was, instead, surprised to discover an empty blue chair instead.

多德致電通報監理所,監理所人員確認系統後回應:「噢,這需要請經理來處理。」

When she called the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to report the problem, the woman looked it up in the system and responded, “Oh, I need my manager for this,” Dodd said.

針對這次的失誤,田納西的國土安全部解釋,多德會收到這張椅子照是因為後勤人員不小心選到此照片檔的最後一張照片。

Regarding the blunder, the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security explained that Dodd “received an image of a chair because that was the last picture taken on the file.” 

「被告知這件事後,我們馬上更正並將正確的照片寄送給客戶,也於內部處理這次的錯誤。」

“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,” a spokesperson said. 

多德將搞笑駕照PO網後引起網友熱烈反應,紛紛留言道,「田納西州發行『空座位』駕照,超前領先特斯拉創辦人馬斯克」、「反正誰真的覺得駕照大頭照有像自己。」

After posting the hilarious driver’s license on her social media, Dodd received likes and memes from strangers, with many commenting: “Tennessee people are way ahead of Elon Musk, they are already issuing driver’s licenses to empty seats.”

Another person wrote: “Who thinks they really look like the pictures on their driver’s license anyway.”
