When we are younger, we seem to remember everything. By the time we hit mid-life, however, we start forgetting why we had walked into the next room. Suddenly, our life is a series of looking for items we can’t find.
It seems that is what happened to this elderly couple when they stopped at a restaurant. She left her glasses behind, and her cranky old husband just couldn’t let it go. He yelled at her non-stop, but she got the last laugh.
While on a road trip, an elderly couple stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. After finishing their meal, they left the restaurant and resumed their trip.
When leaving, the elderly woman unknowingly left her glasses on the table, and she didn’t miss them until they had been driving for about forty minutes.
By then, to add to the aggravation, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around, in order to return to the restaurant to retrieve her glasses.
All the way back, the elderly husband became the classic grouchy old man. He fussed and complained, and scolded his wife relentlessly during the entire return drive. The more he chided her, the more agitated he became. He just wouldn’t let up for a single minute.
To her relief, they finally arrived at the restaurant. As the woman got out of the car, and hurried inside to retrieve her glasses, the old geezer yelled to her,
