“What’s your lucky number going to be?” asked me the girl sitting next to me at the licensing office.
“What do you mean?” I had completed my driving classes and was waiting for my turn to appear in the test.
“I mean how many attempts will it take you to pass?” she answered, “I heard of a man who passed on the 26th attempt.”
“26th??? Is that even possible?” Every time you fail you have to do more driving classes and then reappear in the test. I was sure she was making this up just to rattle me.
Fresh with this bit of information I went in to appear in the test.
The first time I made a mistake backing out the car.
The second time I made a mistake turning left.
The third time I messed up on the roundabout.
The fourth time I bungled up the U turn.
The fifth time I didn’t make any mistake and I passed. I guess my lucky number was 5.
I think it’s quite likely that someone made 26 attempts. I admire his resilience and determination but I hope I never meet him on the road. 🙂
