A man was being tailgated by a stressed-out woman on a busy street. Suddenly, the light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.
The tailgating woman hit the roof–and the horn–screaming in frustration as she missed her chance to get through the intersection. As she was still in mid-rant and using obscenities, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious cop. The officer ordered her to get of her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, finger printed, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.
He said, “I’m very sorry for this mistake. I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the ‘Choose Life’ license plate holder, the ‘What Would Jesus Do’ bumper sticker, the ‘Follow Me to Sunday School’ bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated ’Christian Fish’ emblem on the trunk. Naturally, I assumed you had stolen the car.”
The answer, of course, is to never put anything on your car that might mislead anyone behind you. That way, you can rage to your heart’s content.
See you tomorrow.
