Reasons why certain old people should not drive

1. They can't see over the stirring wheel and park dangerously close to the car in front of them where a young healthy heterosexual couple happen to be loading groceries.
2. The older foot slips off the break pedal and onto the gas and smash the man's (mike's) legs in between cars.
3. The old person's reaction time is significantly delayed and causes the woman (me) to yell "back up the car..." repeatedly.
4. An older person goes into shock and simply stares at the girl yelling...
5. Which causes her to yell even louder in increasing hysterics (hello! someone's legs are trapped between 2 cars fool)
6. The winkled-foot-slipping accident breaks the little bone in the back of the man's leg and pretty much ruins a otherwise nice Sunday afternoon.
7. The old woman will most likely forget what happened in her old age while the others (mostly me) will constantly get the willies reliving the episode in their mind and cringe at the site of nasty bruises.

(sorry if you don't want to see these pictures...)

and most importantly:
8. People with broken legs can't play soccer... and i guess old women can't either but they shouldn't drive and ruin other people's sports seasons.

So if you are this certain elderly person.... please. Take the bus.

OH MY GOSH!! I can't believe that old woman smashed Mike's leg! Dang!

Do you guys need "cheer-me-up" cookies or something? (not that I could match your cookie making skills, but I'd try.....)

And...have you ever noticed that older people drive the BIGGEST cars ever? Why is that?
