When Jane Dodd renewed her driver's license, she didn't have high hopes for her ID photo. However, when she received her new license, she saw she wasn't in the photo at all.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Driver's license pictures rarely turn out well, but most of the time, you're at least in the picture. Jane (ph) Dodd of Tennessee was not. She told WKRN she was surprised when her new ID came in the mail and the photo was of an empty chair, apparently mistakenly used. On the upside, her picture shows not a hair out of place, and she has no goofy smile. The downside - her boss pointed at a chair and said, hey, I thought that was you. It's MORNING EDITION.
