Two elderly women were taking an afternoon drive.
Both could barely see over the dashboard of the luxury car.
Cruising along, they approached an intersection where the light was red.
They cruised right through.
The passenger thought, I must be losing it—
I could have sworn we just went through a red light.
After a few more minutes they approached another intersection.
The light was red, and again they went right through.
This time the passenger was almost certain that the light was red,
but she was also concerned that she might be seeing things.
She was getting nervous but instead of saying anything,
she paid close attention as they approached another intersection.
She could see the light was red.
Without any hesitation, they cruised right through.
She turned to the driver and exclaimed,
“Mildred! Did you know we just drove through three red lights in a row?
You could have killed us!”
Mildred turned to her and asked, “Oh, $#!%! Am I driving?”
