Older Drivers

Two elderly ladies were out driving in a large car. Both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection. The stop light was red, but they just went on through. The woman in the passenger seat thought, “I must be losing it; I could have sworn we just went through a red light.”

After a few more minutes, they came to another intersection, the light was red again, and they went right through again. This time the woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous and decided to pay close attention to the road and the next intersection to see what was happening.

Sure enough, the light was red at the next intersection, and they went right through. She turned to the other woman and said, “Mildred! Did you know we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could have got us killed!” Mildred turned to her and said, “Oh hell, am I driving?”
