The Age Of Honesty

, , , | Right | April 6, 2016

(It is around 1970. A nicely dressed elderly lady gets on the bus and puts in a dime (the senior citizen fare), then opens her wallet to get her ID.)

Driver: “Oh, ma’am, you don’t need to show your ID!”

Lady: “I may be 81, young man, but I still have my pride!”

Driver: “No, ma’am, you don’t look that age, but you do look honest!”

(She smiled and I think everyone on the bus did, too. I gave the driver a grin as I got off.)
