A man was sitting on a lawn chair reading a book when he was startled by a car crashing through a hedge, coming to rest on his lawn. He helped the elderly man out of the car and to a chair. “Goodness,” he exclaimed, “you’re quite old to be driving!”

“Yes,” the driver explained. “I’m old enough that I don’t need a license. The last time I went to my doctor for a checkup, she asked if I had a driver’s license. I told her yes and handed it to her. She took a scissors from a drawer, cut the license into pieces, and threw them in the wastebasket. ‘You don’t need this anymore,’ she said. “I thanked her and left.”
