One for the record

One could guess this wasn’t her first stop of the night.

A convenience store became an unwilling drive-in when a 74-year-old woman plowed her car through the front window and then tried to buy a six-pack of Budweiser, according to a July 1 AP story.

A Norwalk, Calif., woman drove her 1988 Cadillac into Joe’s Food Mart and Video on Sunday evening, a Los Angeles County sheriff’s officer explained. The car plowed about halfway through the store, but nobody was injured. The driver got out of the car, walked to the cooler and took out a six-pack of Budweiser beer.

“I don’t know how she managed to walk,” the cashier said. He declined the sale and instead called police.
