While driving home from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona, Sally saw a senior woman strolling on the side of the street.
She decided to stop the vehicle and inquired as to whether the woman might want a ride. The woman got into the car with a silent nod of thanks.
Continuing the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with her.

The woman just sat quietly, looking intently at all that she saw, studying every detail until she saw a bag on the seat beside Sally.
"What's in the bag?" asked the woman.
Sally looked down at the bag and stated, "It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband."
The woman was quiet for another minute or two. Then talking with the quiet wisdom of a senior, she said,
Here's a bonus joke that will crack you up as well.
A grandmother went to a bank aiming to withdraw some cash. She gave her bank card to a bank teller and stated, "I would like to withdraw $500."
"For withdrawals less than $5,000, please use the ATM," the female teller advised her.
"Why?" the grandmother inquired.

"These are rules. Please leave if there is no other matter. There is a queue behind you," the teller irritably responded, before returning the card to the old woman.
The grandmother stayed quiet for some time. Then she decided to return the card to the teller and told her, "Please help me withdraw all the money I have."
After checking the old lady's account, the teller was shocked. She nodded her head, leaned down, and told the grandma, "My apologies Granny, you have $3.5 million in your account, and our bank does not have so much cash currently. Could you make an appointment and come again tomorrow?"

The grandma asked, "How much am I able to withdraw now?"
"Any amount up to $300,000," the teller replied.
The grandma then told the teller that she wanted to withdraw $300,000 from her account. The teller did so rapidly and gave it to the old lady politely. The grandma kept $500 in her bag and asked the teller to deposit the balance of $299,500 back into her account.
