After retiring, an old salt went to the social security office to apply for Social Security. The woman behind the counter asked him for his driver's license to verify his age. He soon discovered that he had left it at home. So he apologized to the woman, telling her that he would have to go home to get his wallet and hopefully make it back before they closed for the day.

"That won't be necessary,' the woman said, 'just unbutton your shirt."

So he opened his shirt, revealing curly silver hair.

She says, "That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me" and she processed his Social Security application.

When he got home, he excitedly told his wife about his experience at the social security office.

"Too bad you didn't drop your pants instead,' his wife said, 'you would have qualified for disability payments."
