“Have A Good Day, Sir” June 14, 2014

Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Humor, Joke.

Donald-Duck-DrivingA Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership.

Taking off down the road, he pushed it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.

“Amazing,” he thought as he flew down I-95, pushing the pedal even more.

Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a Florida State Trooper, blue lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120.

Suddenly he thought, “What am I doing? I’m too old for this!” and pulled over to await the trooper’s arrival.

Pulling in behind him, the trooper got out of his vehicle and walked up to the Corvette. He looked at his watch, then said, “Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a new reason for speeding – a reason I’ve never before heard – I’ll let you go.”

The old gentleman paused then said, “Three years ago, my wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.”

“Have a good day, Sir,” replied the trooper.

Aah . . . that’s better!

nrhatch - June 14, 2014

Makes me want to get in my convertible and fly down the highway to see what happens.

Oh, right, I don’t have a convertible. 😎

One merely wishes all troopers to be of such a generous nature!

nrhatch - June 14, 2014

Some troopers have a generous nature . . . some of the time. Usually on Fridays at shift’s end. 😎

ashokbhatia - June 14, 2014

Good observation!

nrhatch - June 14, 2014

I’ve been fortunate a few times when stopped to drive away without a ticket.

5. colonialist - June 14, 2014

Ours, when feeling good, reduce the amount of the bribe they expect for turning a blind eye. Oh, and they REALLY get cross if you want the ticket instead.

nrhatch - June 14, 2014

Well ain’t that a unique turn of events. “Sir, I’d like to see your license, your registration, and . . . a bribe.”

6. bluebee - June 14, 2014

Haha – his hair may be thinning but not his brain cells. 🙂

nrhatch - June 14, 2014

Good point, BB. He’s still got his wits about him.

7. diannegray - June 14, 2014

Haaaaa! Wonderful – love it! 😀

nrhatch - June 14, 2014

Glad to see seniors putting all that accumulated wisdom and street smarts to good use. 😎

8. Jill Weatherholt - June 14, 2014

Aw…gotta love those senior Floridian jokes! Thanks for the laugh, Nancy! OMG…I can’t wait for you to read Eric’s spotlight post next week. What a doll, he sent it early and it’s hilarious!

nrhatch - June 14, 2014

Yay! I’m glad that Eric decided to highlight his sense of humor while in the spotlight. I’m enjoying this series of yours.

Jill Weatherholt - June 15, 2014

I’m having fun with it too, Nancy!

nrhatch - June 15, 2014

Yay! Then it’s a Win ~ Win ~ Win!

9. elizabeth2560 - June 14, 2014

Definitely original!

nrhatch - June 14, 2014

A quick wit is like a “Get Out of Jail Free” card.

10. jannatwrites - June 14, 2014

Haha, that’s funny. If I ever get pulled over for speeding, I hope it’s by an officer who doesn’t want to deal with the paperwork 🙂

nrhatch - June 15, 2014

Or who has already met his/her quota for the month. 😎

11. Pix Under the Oaks - June 15, 2014

Ha ha! Very good!!! 😀

nrhatch - June 15, 2014

Hope you and CH have a brilliant day, Pix.

12. ericjbaker - June 15, 2014


That’s all I got.

nrhatch - June 15, 2014

That’s just enough . . . looking forward to seeing you in the spotlight on Jill’s blog.

ericjbaker - June 15, 2014

Thanks. Anticipate an… alternative entry.


nrhatch - June 15, 2014

It’s so funny that you think I didn’t know that you would be “alternative.” 😎

13. livelytwist - June 15, 2014

It helps to think on your feet! 😀

nrhatch - June 15, 2014

Agreed . . . think on your feet while revving the engine!
Vroom! Vroom!

14. Three Well Beings - June 17, 2014

Good one! 🙂 Apparently the state trooper identified with the situation.

nrhatch - June 17, 2014

It’s a guy thing. 😎

Of course research shows that married men are, on average, happier than unmarried men. While the opposite is true for women.
