Default Elderly Drivers

A Massachusetts State Police Officer sees a car puttering along the highway at 38 MPH so he turns on his lights and pulls them over. There are Five old ladies ~ two in the front seat and three in the back ~ eyes wide and white as ghosts sat silently staring straight ahead.

The driver, obviously confused, says to him, “Officer, I don't understand, I was doing exactly the speed limit: 38 MPH! What seems to be the problem?'

The Statie, trying to contain a chuckle, explains to her that "38" is the route number, not the speed limit.

The 80-year-old woman sheepishly grinned and thanked him for pointing out her error.

“Before I let you go, Ma'am, I have to ask: Is everyone in this car ok? The other ladies seem awfully shaken and they haven't muttered a single peep this whole time."

"Oh, they'll be okay in a minute,” says the driver. “We just got off of Route 128 "

To bad I'm not old enough to use that excuse. I drive I-88 every week. That would make the trips much quicker.
