Can you see it now?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Little Miss @ 11:09 pm

My neighbor was chatting with us tonight. She had three cars, and she’s the only one in the house that drives. We noticed one of the cars was gone.

I asked her, “So, I see you got rid of the white car.”

She replied, “Ya, I donated it to the blind people.”

Right, I thought. Because there are lots of blind people who need to drive around.

(Of course, she meant that a non-profit group sold the car and the proceeds go to blind people. I still thought it was funny how she said it and I cracked up for several minutes.)

  1. I love your Mr. Magoo graphic. He used to drive me crazy with his old-guy insistence on driving even though he couldn’t see. Of course, I was too young to know it based in fact, that old people are reluctant to stop driving. I found out that it took both my great-granparents to drive their car. Even though my g-grandfather couldn’t see very well, he refused to give up the driver’s seat. So my g-grandmother steered while he did the foot controls. And they lived in the city. Nice.

  2. LOL. This reminds me of when I was a little kid. I called my mother at work, all excited because there was a van in front of our apartment that said, “A blind man drives this vehicle.” I was amazed and couldn’t understand how that was possible, until Mom explained that, y’know, it was a window blind service.
