Elderly Drivers

This was sent via email, making the rounds to all my friends. Not a true story, but it probably has some truth in it anyway.

My neighbor was working in his yard when he was startled by a late model car that came crashing through his hedge and ended up on his front lawn.

He rushed to help an elderly lady driver out of the car and sat her down on a lawn chair.

He said with excitement "You appear quite elderly to be driving."

"Well, yes I am", she replied proudly.

"I'll be 97 next month, and I am now old enough that I don't even need a driver's license to drive anymore."

"The last time I went to my doctor he examined me and asked if I had a driver's license. I told him yes, and handed it to him. He took scissors out of the drawer, cut the license into pieces, and threw it into the waste basket saying 'you won't need this anymore', so I thanked him and left."

Must have been the same lady that drove her car through a Tim Horton's coffee shop window last week....

Snortle. That kind of reminded me of an encounter with a relative by marriage a number of years ago. I happened to see him at a shopping mall. He was alone out in a seating area. I said hello and asked how his wife was doing. He told me that she was fine for now.. that she's having one last shopping spree before she has plastic surgery later that day. "Oh?" I asked. "Yes," he said, "when we get home this afternoon, I'm cutting up all of her credit cards." ;)
