Old Age Pension
Posted by Ranjan Weerasinghe on 11/09/2005

A retired gentleman went to Social Welfare Office to apply for the Old Age Pension. The woman behind the counter asked him for his driver's license to verify his age. He looked in his pockets and realized he had left his wallet at home.

He told the woman that he was very sorry but he seemed to have left his wallet at home. "I will have to go home and come back later." he said.

The woman says, "Unbutton your shirt." So he opens his shirt revealing curly silver hair. She says, "That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me" and she processed his Old Age Pension application.

When he returned home, the man excitedly tells his wife about his experience at the Welfare office. She says, "You should have dropped your pants. You might have got the Disability Pension, too."
