How Teenagers and the Elderly Differ and Are the Same

How Did You Break That Leg?
Elderly: I was driving to the store and hit a bad space of pavement and fell. I think it was partially due to my medication. It has taken 5 months to heal.
Teenager: I was getting wasted with a friend at a bar and went to the store and raced grocery carts down the aisle. I think we drank too much. It has taken 5 days to heal.
Why did you pee your pants?
Elderly: I was at the bingo game and couldn’t reach the bathroom in time
Teenager: I was at the Headbangers Concert and couldn’t reach the portapotty in time because of the line
Why did you crash?
Elderly: I took the wrong med I guess. I was given a lot of meds for my conditions.
Teenager: I took the wrong med I guess. I was given meds because i wasn’t doing well in school.

My 83 year old Father ended up on the wrong side of the road!
We could have been killed!
I think that he needs to stop driving soon.
He’s going to kill someone!
