I write a lot about driver's license restoration. The truth is that as a Michigan driver's license restoration lawyer, it's good business for me to be at the head of the class in terms of writing articles that explain things and help people understand the license appeal process. While my steadfast requirement that a person must truly be sober before I will take his or her case certainly limits the number of potential clients I actually get, my guarantee that I'll win your case if I take it tends to balance that out. By limiting my clientele to people who have really quit drinking, I reduce my aggravation factor by a ton. Sober people are generally much easier to deal with than those who are still drinking, but there are exceptions. Sober or not, the point here is that difficult people tend to make everything...difficult.
While it is absolutely true that anyone who is still in the throes of a drinking problem is difficult to deal with, particularly in a Michigan driver's license restoration appeal where proving that sobriety is really the main issue, it is also true that just being sober doesn't necessarily make interacting with a person easy. Some people are just difficult people, period. In this article, I am going to "vent" about this very issue. Beyond blowing off some steam, perhaps the reader may recognize something about dealing with the difficult people in your life, or even how not to be that difficult person yourself. The bottom line is that in order to win a license appeal, I have to be in control.
Look, we all have bad days. Some people make a living by not letting the day-to-day problems affect their performance. Some of us find that work can often be a way to forget about the outside pressures of life. It can be cathartic. No matter what you do for a living, however, if you deal with people, you are going to run across a few special cases that make you shake your head and wonder why they cannot see that their own attitude causes them so much grief. In my role as a driver's license reinstatement attorney, I occasionally run into people who want to do everything their way. There is no softer way to put it than to say that if I'm hired as the expert who guarantees his work, then I have to run things.
This can almost be funny, inasmuch as I've handled and won more license appeals than I could ever count, and that my representation comes with a guarantee. Still, some people just seem born to argue. While I understand that the Michigan Secretary of State seems to make the whole license reinstatement process hard, rules are the rules. I don't make them; I simply know how to navigate them so that, if you're really sober, I can get your license back. Getting all frustrated and then blurting out, "this is bull$#it" doesn't change things.
