Expiration Dates

I recently read of a Rhode Island state trooper that once pulled over a 99 year old woman who produced a driver’s license issued in 1917. He ruled the license was valid since 1917 Rhode Island licenses did not have expiration dates.

A lot of other things do have expiration dates however and good time management can help stay us on top of them. When you check out library books, immediately make a reminder in your organizer the day before they are due. If your area has vehicle inspections, make a note on your calendar two weeks before the reinspection deadline. If you have a special coupon or offer you want to take advantage of make a note of it a few days before it expires.

Expiration dates have a way of creeping up on us, including the expiration date on life itself. If you haven’t prepared for that one, do so immediately. There’s no better way to redeem the time.
