korean woman has failed driving test 771 times

All right. No jokes about bad Asian drivers. This is just kind of sad... but it's also definitely a story about not giving up. AFP reports that a 68-year-old woman in South Korea has failed her driving test 771 times.

Mrs. Cha has apparently taken the drivers' license test almost every working day in the city of Jeonju since 2005. She failed again Monday for the 771st time: SKorean granny fails driving test 771 times.

It's actually not even the driving portion of the test she's failing -- she can't pass the preliminary written section, averaging scores of 30-50. The pass mark is 60 out of 100. But she's not giving up! She'll keep taking the damn thing until she passes.
