The Speeding Ticket
A man in his 40s bought a new BMW and was out driving on the interstate
at top speed when he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind
“There’s no way they can catch a BMW,” he thought to himself and sped up
even more. Then the reality of the situation hit him, “What the heck am
I doing?” he thought and pulled over.
The cop came up to him, took his license without a word, and examined it
and the car. “It’s been a long day, it is the end of my shift, and it’s
Friday the 13th. I don’t feel like more paperwork, so if you can give
me an excuse for your driving that I haven’t heard before, you can go.”
The guy thinks for a second and says, “Last week my wife ran off with a
cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back.”
“Have a nice weekend,” said the officer.
