Re: Odd Situation
No, I don't see any crime here, either. I suppose it is possible that Texas has some weird administrative law that says, if you are aware of such an error, that you are required to notify within 45 days or something. But, that seems pretty unlikely.
However, hypothetically speaking, if you were to be stopped by a cop and presented that as proof of identity, I can see a scenario where it could cause you some grief. I can see the cop thinking, "I'm looking at this guy's DMV record right here on my official-police-squad-car-computer and it says he only has a learner's permit. But, what he just handed me says driver's license. This must be a forgery." You might have quite a bit of difficulty dissuading him/her of that notion.
On a side note, I always have to laugh. It seems like whatever city you talk about, people from that city always think they have the worst traffic congestion, craziest drivers, etc. Just makes me chuckle that this seems to be so ubiquitous.
Behind the badge is a person. Behind the person is an ego. This is as it should be, person at the center and ego to the back.
