When Gavin Clarkson and his fiance applied for a marriage license in Washington D.C., it was a shock to them when they were denied for having international driver's licenses.
Which would be fine.....if it wasn't for the fact that the couple is from New Mexico.
"You know you are from flyover country when you are applying for a marriage license, give them your New Mexico driver's license, and they come back and say: 'My supervisor says we cannot accept international driver's licenses. Do you have a New Mexico passport?"
The clerk even commented on Clarkson having great English. Marina, Clarkson's fiance, was bewildered at the comment.
The clerk went back to the supervisor for a second time and they eventually realized that New Mexico was in fact a part of the United States.
