The other day, I pulled up to a two-car crash where one vehicle rear ended another. I walked up to one of the drivers and asked him what happened. During the interview, he told me he rear ended the car in front of him.
I next asked, “Do you have a license?”
“Do you mean you forgot it or you’ve never been issued one?”
“I’m illegal and I’m working on it.”
“They started handing them out over a year ago. What are you working on?”
“I needed paperwork and they also said I need glasses before I can get my license. I have an appointment tomorrow.”
It’s amazing how many people say they have an appointment at the DMV “tomorrow.” If I had a dollar for every time I’d heard that one.
“How are you going to take the test tomorrow if you don’t even have your glasses yet?”
The underage DUI driver seemed confused by my question. After a moment he finally said, “I’m going to Costco tomorrow before my test.”
Nice try, but I don’t think he’s too familiar with the prescription glasses process. He’ll have to work on planning things out better next time. He should start out with not drinking and driving while unlicensed. That would be a good start.
