The Tailgater

The Tailgater

A man was being tailgated by a stressed-out woman on a busy
boulevard. 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 — and screamed
in frustration as she missed her chance to get through the intersection
on his tail.

She was still in mid-rant when she heard a tap on her window and
looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer
ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police
station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed
in a cell.

After a couple of hours, a jailer approached the cell and opened the
door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting
officer was waiting with her personal effects.

“I’m very sorry for the mistake,” he tells her. “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. So
naturally, I assumed you had stolen the car.”
