Friday Funnies - Arrest Mistake

It's time once again for Friday Funnies, hosted by Kim at Homesteaders Heart. Need a laugh today? Pop on over to her blog to read more.

Arrest Mistake

A man is being tailgated by a stressed-out woman on a busy boulevard. Suddenly the light turns yellow just in front of him. He does the right thing and stops at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.

The tailgating woman hits the roof, and the horn, screaming in frustration as she misses her chance to get through the intersection with him. As she is still in mid-rant, she hears a tap on her window and looks up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer orders her to exit her car with her hands up. He takes her to the police station where she is searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a cell.

After a couple of hours, a policeman approaches the cell and opens the door. She is escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer is waiting with her personal effects. He says, "I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping the guy off 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."

He paused and then stated, "Naturally I assumed you had stolen the car."

Might I add to this that people are watching. If you proclaim it, you'd better live it too!

I have read this before and it is so true...makes you stop and think! I have really been trying not to 'talk' to the people who drive around me as I know that boy ears are listening and they are repeating or reacting! And that is not good!
