Geezuz, a facility and actually THE room I often frequent. I’ll risk it and go out on a limb here. First thing Friday morning, all the “blue-haireds” flock to the lab. Wonderful people, don’t get me wrong. Driving skills well diminished as seen in the photo.

DMV doesn’t care but this is such a ridiculously common occurrence in this country, people that can no longer discern or coordinate brake versus throttle. In my perfect world, you have one of these occurrences, your license gets YOINKED forever.
