An elderly man was headed home in his car one evening, swerving and weaving on the road, when he was stopped by a policeman.
"Have you been drinking tonight, sir?" the policeman asked .
"Well, I may have had a pint or two." The man replied, smiling. "Why do you ask?"
"Sir, your wife fell out of the car about a mile back."
"Oh, thank goodness," the man exclaimed. "I thought I'd gone deaf!"
