I can't drive what?
What follows provided me with quite a laugh I trust it will at least provide you with a chuckle as this week comes to an end.
As most of you know I am wheelchair bound and have been for the past seven years or so, using a walker is impossible I can stand then transfer by pivoting and that's about it.
Some time ago I received forms from the licensing bureau requesting medical information from my family physician my optometrist etc. at first I wasn't certain what to do.
On one hand it would be great if I could maintain my licensing privileges yet on the other side of the coin it really isn't that important to me, We are centrally located and I can virtually go anywhere with my electric wheelchair.
Turns out everything came back indicating there was no reason why I could not maintain my driving privileges so I did not hesitate and sent the papers off to the SAAQ, that is the governing body in the province of Québec which handles all licensing registration anything to do with driving vehicles.
Yesterday afternoon I received a call from a gentleman at the SAAQ wishing to inform me the classification of my permit had changed, class 6.3 had been removed. My question to him of course was "what is class 6.3" to which he answered and this is no kidding.
You are no longer permitted to drive scooters! I asked again for confirmation hung up and then cracked up!
Have a super weekend!
