Seriously guys, reading newspapers these days is worth it…..nah…..am not talking about the rising rates of crime or the economic recession. But just think about the bizarre news these papers publish.
I was flipping through the paper this morning and stumbled upon an interesting bit of news about a South Korean Grandmom (Granny) who just cannot give up. This lady, known as Cha has failed her driving test……so whats the big deal, eh? Many do…..but no….she has failed for the 771st time. WOW~
For a record number, this 68 year old, Cha, has appeared for the test almost every working day since 2005 at Jeonju. (OMG!! How can one be so determined?) . And this Monday, she failed again, creating a record number of fails!
And imagine what? The local newspaper reports say that she might appear again.
Choi Yong-Cheol, a police sergeant supervising the test in the city's Deokjingu district says that Cha could not get through the preliminary written section of the test. She left behind margin of 10, getting 30-50 whereas the pass marks were 60.
"It was a record-breaking number here," Choi Yong-Cheol, a police sergeant supervising the test said.
Cha is a 68 year old lady, who sells food and household items door to door at apartment complexes, carrying the items in a handcart, but wants to get a car for her business.
Estimates say that she has spent almost five million won ($5600) to take the written tests in addition to other expenses.
I have full sympathies for this poor lady. But whatever you say, one cannot stop being in awe of this 68 year old. If this had happened to me, I would have just appointed a driver and left LOL!
Anyways, here she stands strong on the saying, try try until you succeed, and even if you don’t, just try to get this recognition, and then you'd do better :P
