Taxi Driver License

I always glance at the photo of the driver on the dashboard. Somehow I feel more comfortable knowing what the cabbie looks like head on, as I usually only get to see the back of the driver's head or the side of their face. Today, as I studied the driver's portrait and then looked over at the cabbie, I didn't see much of a resemblance. I assumed it was his co-worker who shares the cab with him, so I decided to ask him about his fellow cabbie. For a moment, the driver didn't say a word. But then he told me that it was his own photo taken 30 years ago.
