Can't win

Sarah and I were driving to Peoria and hit that spot where the construction zone ends and the speed limit suddenly goes from 45 to 70.  I was gradually speeding up, when a little white-haired lady in a Buick passed me in the passing lane.  Sarah said, "Why are you going so slow, Mom?!  A granny just passed us!"  I explained that I was in the process of accelerating. When I got up to 70, I passed Old Buick Lady and yelled back to Sarah, "Did you see that?  I just passed someone!  Woo-hoo!"  She rolled her eyes and said, "Passing a granny is not an accomplishment to celebrate."
