This is rather worrying!

Have just heard that one local authority in Kent has arranged for taxi driver application forms to be printed in braille. Think I will get the bus!

Ha, ha!! That is so funny. Bit like my Mother in Law yesterday. She rang to say she has to have an eye operation in March and that she can't see. She lives with her daughter but was phoning me from her own house which is about a quarter of a mile away. She said, I suppose I shouldn't have driven round here but I know where I'm going!!She's 90 next month! What are you supposed to say? I did try to point out someone might have stepped out in front of her.

I read this and the replies out to my husband this morning Andy. I nearly choked laughing.
The mind boggles and asks itself 'what next?' lol
Loved Linda's reply and Sybs too.

I think I'm going to have to look both ways 'twice' now just in case there are like minded folks out there such as Linda's mum. hehehehe!
Thanks for that moment of laughter.

I brought my imagination onto the scene, however politically incorrect it is :)
1.Illegal immigrant, with European driving licence, that cannot read or speak English has obtained through 'pure love' an English wife that is blind...
2. The 'governing body' decided that taxi drivers should be able to 'feel their way' through all adverse road or weather conditions.
3. Recruits are required to 'apparently drive' a totally automated taxi.
This is a secret government project that seeks to reduce unecessary mileage by gas guzzling taxis. All who enter it are required to swallow any written contract and permenently dispose of the evidence that was passed ... by order from above! :))

I am smiling Andy! for the first time in many days, weeks, months, years.
To say thank you is just not enough.
