So I went off to the ICBC today (thats like a DMV for all you 'merkins), to take my drivers test. Got up at the crack of dawn, practised a little, went in with my fingers crossed.
Well, long story short, I failed. Catastrphically. Badly. Okay, maybe I’m exagerrating, but I did fail. Now I am doomed to forever tooling around town with a qualified driver and that immensly dorky ‘L’ pasted on the back of my car. I proposed that I somehow attach it to my chest like the ‘A’ in the scarlet letter, but then I realized that I would need to keep it on the back of the car. Sigh.
So here I am, feeling very despondant. This sucks. I feel like such a knob - everyone I know has a drivers license. I need some advice - should I keep trying? How often? How soon? Am I just wasting money? Should I give up now and cut my losses?
Incidently I don’t live with or near my parents so this is costing me a lot in gas / lessons / tests / etc., and is probably grating immensly on my friends nerves to boot, and none of that is getting absorbed by my parents, where it usually goes when sane people get thier license at 16 or whatever.
Anyways, thats my story. Any advise, commiserating, mocking, whatever would be appreciated.
