Failed 771 times and still trying!

By
Real Estate Agent with x

This is one of those stories that shows great motivation or great stupidity.  My wife heard on the radio about this grandmother who has failed her driving test 771 times and she says she will continue to try until she passes it.  Now most people would have stopped at failing a test 3 or 4 times; But, 771.

Well, she get an A+ for perseverance.

Here is the link.

Brian ...

Here's a favorite quote of mine that goes along with what you are saying:

 "I have not failed 700 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work." - Thomas Edison

Passion Rules!

I think she should not give up.The folks at the DMV must go crazy every time she walks in the door. Serves them right.

Brain, that is nuts.  Maybe it gives her something to do and someone to talk to every day! LOL!

Perserverance? How about I fear if she passes the test ~ She will actuallly be on the road? Ouch.

Ok , I had to click on the link to see for myself.   For those who did not, this was the WRITTEN portion of the test not the actually driving part.  How is that even possible?

Heck.... I have failed at least that many times in real estate ( everytime I got no for an answer)  I admire this person.

She does have a lot of perserverance. I hope that they are better drivers in South Korea than in China. A ride can be an adventure over there.
