Today, I sneezed while my ID photo was being taken. I look like a total moron in it. The photographer refused to retake the photo because I "clearly" faked the sneeze just to be funny. FML

What I wanna know is... if you're in a situation where you have to present your ID, do you have to make a sneezing face to be recognizable?

Sounds like a funny story, but does he not understand that people's ID photos need to be recognizable?

I feel like snot coming out of your nose should be enough to convince a person that a sneeze was real

@2 I'm sure it would, but there may not have been any snot coming out of her nose.

You should complain

Should've asked to speak to supervisor.

If you think YOUR ID picture is bad, you should see Dopey's and Sleepy's. - Doc

from the mediator series right?!?

If your face chased so much as to render you unrecognizable, you must retake it. Otherwise, I do not believe the photographer, and I use the term lightly, has a right to deny you a second chance at your picture.

"Lose" your ID.

they'll give you a copy of it with the same picture so that would not work

So then you pay money to have an identical one issued to you?

I thought you could retake your picture

They save the ID pictures in the US? Wow, makes me glad I don't live there. (In Germany you can bring a new picture if you lose your ID, they don't save them anywhere and I thought that was "normal")

yet another reason Germany is the place to be.

I'm pretty sure they can't do that, you have to be able to see your face for proper authentication

no they can lol

That's what I thought. I don't know about other states, but in mine everyone is required to take off all hats and glasses as to not obstruct/ distort the face at all. I'd think a sneeze face would count as some sort of distortion.

You can usually have them retake an id photo. The person was just being a tool....
