         Applying for the Age pension

An elderly gentleman went to the Centre Link Office
To see if he was eligible for the old age pension
A young lady then asked to see his drivers license
So that she could verify his age and intention.

Putting his hand in his pocket for his license
He soon realized that he had left it at home
Apologizing profusely, he said, Iíll go home and get it
Iíll be as quick as I can, my mistake to atone.

She surprised him by saying open your shirt
And when he did, showed a chest of curly grey hair
Thatís good enough for me, she said with a smile
I can see you are genuine, my judgment was fair.

Arriving home he told his wife what had transpired
His description was quick to gain her attention
Why the heck didnít you drop down your trousers
And then you would have got a disabled manís pension.

Yo LindsayP,

Funny.  That's one bad wife.

It's great being on a pension.  I've been there for the last 17 years.

Life is good.

Bobby
