Should Ole Give Up Driving?

OLE AND Lena were so excited to get a new cell phone. Ole was to call when he was on his way home from town. Ole called Lena when he entered the freeway.

"Lena put supper on, I'm on my way home."

Lena said, "Be careful because I hear some nut is driving the wrong way on the freeway."

"It's worse than that Lena, where I am there are a hundred cars going the wrong way!"
