A man was sitting on the lawn sunning and reading when he was startled by a late model car crashing through a hedge and coming
to rest on his lawn.
He helped the elderly driver out and sat him down on a lawn chair. “My goodness” he exclaimed, “you are quite old to be driving!”
“Yes” the old gentleman replied, “In fact, I’m old enough that I don’t need a license anymore.”
“I’ve never heard of such a thing!” said the man.
“Me neither,” said the old timer, “But the last time I went to my doctor, he examined me, and asked if I had a drivers license. I told him
yes and he asked to see it. Then he took a pair of scissors out of a drawer, cut the license into pieces, and threw them in the wastebasket.”
“You won’t be needing this anymore,” he said.
“So I thanked him and left.”
