Yeah, hahaha. Incompetent, dangerous elderly drivers who have no business behind the wheel. Aren't they a farking scream?

dude was hungry and the place was convenient. most people would probably just ignore the fact that they're hungry and stand around pointlessly doing nothing. he sounds like a clear, no nonsense thinker to me

Biscuit's "N" Gravy and More

the "N" designates that there's suppose to be an "and" there. But then they finish the title with "and More" I understand the shorthand but seriously, either give it 100% or don't bother.

Also,

"Come out of his car, no problem. He sat down at the table, has his breakfast, and God bless America, beautiful,"

Does 'God bless America' really come to mind when someone blatantly crashes into an establishment nearly killing someone? Really? Really?

This article is just fail all around and the only way I can not go crazy from all this nonsense is to remind myself that this is Florida.

I just renewed my Florida drivers license in December. I did it online. When it arrived via mail I was astonished to see it is valid until 2017. I have not taken a written or actual driving test since the 90's. Scary.

Last week a 90 year old woman was leaving a grocery store near here and ended up driving off of a small cliff and into a freezing river. She wasnt hurt, but had to be rescued and taken to the hospital, and in the interview in the paper the next day she was quoted as saying "I dont know what happened, all of a sudden it just accelerated and took off and I had no control."

No shiat. You're 90 years old and confused the gas with the brake and ended up losing control in a goddamn parking lot and ended up in the river but thankfully didnt hurt anyone but yourself.

Anyone over the age of 65 should have to take a driving aptitude test every year to prove they still "have it".

My 92 year-old father-in-law had an accident a couple of months ago, drove right through a red light at a busy intersection, hit a car and kept on going. A few blocks away, a he-man cop pulled him over, out of the car, slammed my father-in-law down to the pavement, and stuffed and cuffed him. The old guy looked like he'd been in a train wreck. Not exactly how to handle a guy that age, but do they care?

They took away his license, which was good, he didn't even know he'd caused an accident and hit another car.

And yet as a group, they have less accidents which means lower insurance premiums than punk asses. Yeah, it's farking hilarious!!

Must be because the number of elderly drivers going only 10 miles an hour still exceeds the number that confuse gas and brake pedals.

I worry about my dad doing something like sailing through a red light, or rear-ending someone because he fails to see that the car in front is slowing down. Thankfully he's driving less these days any way, but it only takes one trip to go wrong.

I *wish* the state would require regular road tests of the elderly in order for them to keep their licenses, because I know he will fight us kids telling him he shouldn't drive any more. And he would really feel the loss of independence, because public transportation where my parents now live isn't common or convenient.

The elderly driver was cited, after breakfast, for careless driving.

Thank gord for that; I can't stand being cited on an empty stomach. Full of bacon? Go 'head, read me the riot act. I'm already napping, what do I care!

Old people don't need a drivers license and breakfast. They need to be isolated and studied so it can be determined what nutrients they have that might be extracted for our personal use.

I sure do like me them Biscuit's "N" Gravy and More, and some french fried pertaters, umm hmm.

It wasn't an accident; at that age, he's a menace. Hopefully, they'll yank his license, but probably not.

Interesting piece of writing.
The following quote is attributed to NO ONE. I suppose they thought they'd just stick it in there and let the reader guess who said it?

"Come out of his car, no problem. He sat down at the table, has his breakfast, and God bless America, beautiful,"

It was him.

In all fairness, I had a friend of friends die in high school where presumably confusing gas and brake at a critical point turned what could have been a minor accident into a fatality.

Of course there's those who say driving age should be raised to 21, 22, 23...

/Another Farker I believe once said it as, "Only drivers between the age of 35 and 35 inclusive."
//Does agree some more frequent testing might be needed at certain ages
///But crap happens sometimes

We have minimum ages for driving as people under 18 can't vote. Political types refuse to address a maximum age as the doddering old fools can. If the ancient ones are such damn good drivers then they should have no problems passing a test every year.

I took my last driving test in nineteen and sixty-one. A brief written one in maybe the 80s, last eye test over 10 years ago. I just renewed last year over the internet and I'm good 'till may of 2017. That's scary.

I live around 10 miles from the Biscuits "N" Gravy and I'm sure there are many more potential Park "N" Eaters waiting to happen.

happiness is a warm pun: Ok, but did he leave a tip?

Are you kidding?? Nobody over 60 knows this 'tip' concept of which you speak. On the off chance they do, 25 cents on a 30$ bill is being generous. Why yes, I DO work at a restaurant on a golf course, why do you ask?

/If you can't afford to tip at least 10% when I know your name, know what you want as soon as you walk in, ring up your order, then proceed to cook it for you, (I work alone from 5-9am, so the old farts that come in for an early breakfast get treated to a one man cooking, serving and cleaning machine) you cannot afford to golf. End of story.
