Changing Gears

An old Irish gentleman's chauffeur didn't show up for work -- and although the old fella had never driven -- he got in the car.

He had a terrible time starting the engine, engaging the clutch and gears. Finally, he got out into the street. When he came to the first traffic light, he killed the engine.

The light changed from green to red five times and traffic was backing up. Finally, another Irishman approached the car, knocked on the window and asked,

"Might ye waitin for a particular shade of green?"

Two morals to the story: How perfect do things need to be before you move on? Secondly please be patient with me -- my gears don't mesh like they used to.
