Watch Out World

Let’s see…

He didn’t get his license right after his birthday due to the holidays and the fact that he couldn’t get his “attendance report” from the school until after January 5th.

Tightwad wouldn’t pay for said attendance report until the middle of January.

I couldn’t get him to the Dept of Drivers’ Services until this past Tuesday.

And this past Tuesday he suffered from significant brain freeze and missed 5 questions when the maximum number he could miss was 4.

So, today I picked him up from school & he made another attempt…

and aced the test.

Therefore, I feel it’s my civic duty to inform all those of the world that he now has his license and everyone better watch out.


Oh, and as an aside, WordPress apparently thinks my reading audience isn’t intelligent enough to understand the words maximum & inform.  It suggested most & tell instead, as maximum & inform are “complex” words.  For the love of Pete.  Sheesh.

    Congrats to the kid!

    Complex words are a challenge to a lot of people! LOL!

    America has been dumbed down for so long, it wouldn’t surprise me, but not YOUR readers!

    I, a, & it are challenging to some people apparently, but definitely NOT my readers. It rather pissed me off that it was suggested to use the “little” words in the first place.

    If anyone cannot read the words maximum & inform- and understand them- I think The Tellitubbies have a blog at

    I had to practically tie my daughter to the steering wheel before she’d learned to drive. I am a calm-tempered driving instructor. But, she didn’t want an license. After all, her mother took her everywhere she wanted to go.

    Funny how all that stopped when she decided she wanted to go to college and needed a car. Isn’t it strange how “need” can change things.

    He wasn’t really thrilled when I put him behind the wheel today. He’s used to driving a compact and I was in the van. And it was very windy.

    If he’ll stay off the fracking white line, he’ll be fine.
