You may have that friend with the III% decal and always complaining we live in a Police Society. I have a couple…. or should say had. They don’t wanna talk to me anymore because I have called their bullshit because they really do not know what is to live in a Police State.
I was cleaning a box with business and other cards (I still have an MCI Phone Card!) and bumped into this:
That is my Venezuelan Driver’s License and Medical Certificate to Drive. They are useless. They have not been used in over 20 years, yet there was a twinge of panic when I thought about putting them through the shredder. Not nostalgia for old times but the fear I may need them in the future, I won’t have them and I will have to pay “mordida” for it or they will take my car. Yes, it is the dumbest of thoughts, but it is the shit that is ingrained in your psyche when you truly live in a Police State.
So what am I gonna do with them? Well what any normal Venezuelan will do in a situation like this: Put them in the safe with the Cedula (National ID) and the Passport also expired to hell, useless but the embedded panic won’t allow you to get rid of them.
