While they were on a road trip, an elderly couple stopped at a roadside diner for lunch.
After finishing their meal, they left the diner and resumed their trip.
When they left, the elderly woman had unknowingly left her glasses on the table, and she didn’t miss them until they had been driving for about forty minutes.
She told her husband, but by then, to add to their aggravation, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around, in order to return to the diner to retrieve her glasses.
All the way back to the diner , the elderly husband became the classic grouchy old man.
He fussed and complained and did nothing but scold his wife relentlessly during the entire return drive.
The more he moaned at her, the more agitated he became as well. He just wouldn’t let up for a single minute of the drive.
To the elderly woman’s relief, they finally arrived back at the diner.
As the woman got out of the car and hurried inside to retrieve her glasses, the old geezer wound down his window and yelled to her, “While you’re in there, you might as well get my hat and the credit card”.
