I came across this joke today and laughed then sighed. Mainly because it's so true. I am reminded of the time I took my grandmother to renew her license. It wasn't until she told the licensing officer that she'd never lost consciousness (she'd had a couple of strokes) that I began to comprehend how much the ability to drive is linked to an elderly person's sense of self and independence.
A group of retirees were discussing their medical problems at the Senior Center over coffee one morning.
"Do you realize," said one, "My arm is so weak I can hardly hold this coffee cup."
"Yes, I know." replied the second, "My cataracts are so bad I can't see to pour the coffee."
"I can't turn my head," rejoined the third, "because of the arthritis in my neck."
"My blood pressure pills make my dizzy," commented the fourth, adding, "I guess that's the price we pay for getting old."
"Let's look at the bright side," piped up the first, "We should be thankful that we can still drive." -submitted to

And unrelated to the first, this one made me laugh on a few different levels:

I tell you, women drivers are a hazard to traffic. Driving to work this morning on the freeway, I looked over to my left and there was a woman in a red Mustang doing 85 miles per hour with her face up next to her rear view mirror putting on her eyeliner!
I looked away for a couple seconds and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane.
It scared me so bad I dropped my electric shaver in my coffee, and it spilled all over my cell phone! - submitted to

I'd love to hear your driving jokes. Please share!
