Half Fare

by Kev Neylon
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 30/03/2017

I asked the driver, “Half into town please.”

The driver looked suspiciously at me, and asked me, “How old are you?”

“Eight”, I replied honestly.

The driver‘s eyes narrowed, and the tone of his voice changed.

“Are you having a laugh? There is no way you’re only eight years old, you’ve got a beard and are over six foot tall.”

It was a line I’d heard many times before. Wearily I got my passport out and showed him my date of birth.

“It says 1984 on this.”

“Yes but the February 29th only happens every four years – I am eight!”
