    Exclamation 68 Year Old Woman Passes Written Part Of Drivers Test On 950th Try!!!

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8347164.stm

    A South Korean woman is celebrating after passing the written exam for a driving licence - on her 950th attempt.

    After four years of trying, 68-year-old Cha Sa-soon finally managed to secure the 60 out of 100 points needed to pass the test.



    Cha Sa-soon says she needs a licence for a vegetable-selling business.

    Thank God she's across a wide ocean and won't be driving here anytime soon. (no pun intended.)

    My first thought when I saw the title of this thread was "please don't let her live in Texas!"
    I'm glad she isn't in this country.

    The story sends a good message of never giving up, have hope, keep trying and succeed! Good for her to not have given up, that is a lot of tries!

    The story isn't over yet. I have a feeling it will end with she should have stopped trying, she should have given up and "success" will be only running over 7 fruit stands instead of 8.

    Feeding the flames of sexism here:

    A woman drives her truck into a 1,500 gallon aquarium at Tampa's airport. She had her 6 yr old sitting on her lap unrestrained. They were unhurt but unfortunately over 90% of the tropical fish perished.
