Cars were at a stoplight. The
light turned green, but the man didn't notice it. The woman behind
him begins pounding on her steering wheel and yelling at the man to
move. The man doesn't move. The woman is going ballistic inside her
car, ranting and raving, pounding on her steering wheel and dash.
The light turns yellow. The woman begins to blow the horn, flips him
off, screams profanity and curses. The man looks up, sees the yellow
light and accelerates through the intersection just as the light
The woman is beside herself, screaming in frustration as she misses
her chance to get through the intersection. As she is in mid-rant
she hears a tap on her window and looks up into the barrel of a gun
held by a policeman. The policeman tells her to shut off her car
while keeping both hands in sight. She complies, speechless at what
is happening. After she shuts off the engine, the policeman orders
her to exit her car with her hands up.
She gets out of the car and he orders her to turn and place her
hands on her car. She turns, places her hands on the car roof and
quickly is cuffed and hustled into the patrol car. She is too
bewildered by the chain of events to ask any questions and is driven
to the police station where she is fingerprinted, photographed,
searched, booked and placed in a cell.
After a couple of hours, a policeman approaches the cell and opens
the door for her. She is escorted back to the booking desk where the
original officer is waiting with her personal effects. He hands her
the bag containing her things, and says, "I'm really sorry for this
mistake. But 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. Then 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 !"
