Road Rage September 21, 2019

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.

A man being tailgated by a stressed out woman on a busy boulevard stopped at the cross walk when the light in front of him turned yellow.

The woman  tailgating him honked repeatedly to show her frustration, furious that he hadn’t raced through the intersection to beat the red light.

As she screamed at the other driver, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a serious looking police officer, “Ma’am, I need you to pull your vehicle over to the side of the road.”


“Pull your vehicle to the side of the road, and turn the ignition off.”

He followed her over, “Ma’am, I need to see your license and registration.”

“What’s this about, officer?”

“License and registration, please.”

“Look, I’m in a hurry.  I’ve got someone I need to meet . . . ”

“Ma’am, please exit the car with your hands up.”

“What?!  I am not a criminal and will not be paraded around . . . ”

The officer opened her door, and waved her out of the vehicle to the back of her car, “Place your hands on the trunk, ma’am.”

He handcuffed her, gave her a quick frisk, then returned to her vehicle for her license and registration.

After radioing in the information, including the license plate of the vehicle, he returned to her side, and unlocked the handcuffs.

“Ma’am, everything checks out.  You’re free to go.”

Fuming, she glared at the officer, “You had no right to detain me like that, and I am going to . . . ”

“Ma’am, when I pulled up behind your car, you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you, and cussing a blue streak.  At that point, I had reasonable cause to investigate.”

“To investigate?!  Investigate what?!”

“Whether you were driving a stolen vehicle.”

“A stolen vehicle?  Why on earth would you think my car was stolen?!”

“Your behavior  seemed at odds with the “What Would Jesus Do?” license plate holder, the “Follow Me to Sunday School” bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk.”

Aah . . . that’s better!
