My Husband Is Angry About Not Being Allowed To Drive. He Has Taken To Trying To Bargain With Me. How Can I Explain That He Cannot Drive?

I have tried to tell him that it is up to the dmv. He has had a simulator test at a local hospital, he failed. I was under the impression that the results would be sent to the DMV. It was not. He thinks I’m keeping him from driving out of meanness.

Some people tell them they are on vacation or tomorrow. Distract them. An example at a course I was on when they asked to go home. You say I want my cat. Then ask what color how old etc.
