Geting out of a ticket

Post by Bham34 » Thu Feb 22, 2007 7:31 pm

Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the
dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the
wind blowing through what little hair he had left.

"Amazing!" he thought as he flew down I-75, pushing the pedal to the metal
even more. Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw the highway patrol behind
him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring.

"I can get away from him - no problem!" thought the elderly nutcase as he
floored it to 100mph, then 110, then 120mph. Suddenly, he thought, "What on
earth am I doing? I'm too old for this nonsense!", pulled over to the side
of the road and waited for the Trooper to catch up with him.

Pulling in behind him, the Trooper walked up to the driver's side of the
Corvette, looked at his watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes.
Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason why you were speeding that I've
never heard before, I'll let you go."

The man, looking very seriously at the Trooper, said, "Years ago, my wife
ran off with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back."

"Have a good day, Sir," said the Trooper.
"Believe more deeply. Hold your face up to the Light, even though
for the moment you do not see."
