Have you seen this story? They say "If at first you don't succeed", but one South Korean lady is taking this to extremes in her efforts to get a driving license. She has failed 771 times. Actually, that was yesterday, so it's probably 772 now, since she takes the test almost every working day.
To be fair, she hasn't actually got to the practical part of the test, because she keeps failing the theory. You'd have thought that by now she'd had all of the possible questions many times. And learned all of the signs.
She's spent $3000 so far on test fees, which is a real bargain, because if she had passed first time, she'd have shelled out far more buying, maintaining, insuring, taxing and fuelling a car over the last four years. In fact the government should be subsiding her, because by failing she's also helping the environment.
If she does ever pass the written exam, I pity the examiner who has to take her out on the road. Of course, she might well be an excellent driver, but I suspect the examiner will be checking his or her life insurance. And taking along spare underwear. Just in case.
I wonder what she'd be doing with her time if she wasn't sitting all these tests - taking flying lessons?
