Wicked Uncle and Grandma’s Skip

Grandma was 85 years old. She still lived on her own quite independently, although she had stopped driving the car when she’d reached 80. In a moment of weakness, she had confessed to the doctor that she occasionally had dizzy spells when she could not remember what her name was or what country she lived in. He prescribed pills for mild epilepsy and ordered her to give up her driving. At first, she refused, but the doctor insisted, saying it wasn't safe for other motorists. Therefore she had no choice but to surrender her licence, which she deeply regretted.
