Will Understand But Not Blindingly Fast

, , , , | Related | June 7, 2019

(My younger sister and I are walking along chatting. Although she is quite smart, she often says things without thinking them through. I would also like to point out that she is 21 years old.)

Sister: “So, you know those white lines in the middle of the road?”

Me: *wondering where this is going* “Yeah?”

Sister: “It that so when blind people drive, they know where the edge of the road is?”

Me: “…”

Sister: “And the bumpy lines are so they know there is a roundabout coming up.”

Me: “…”

Sister: “What?”

Me: “…”

(Sudden realisation dawns on her face.)

Sister: “Oh. Blind people can’t drive.”

Me: “No. No, they can’t.”

(We still laugh about it to this day.)
