Two cars were waiting at a stoplight. The light turned green, but the man
didn't notice it. A woman in the car behind him is watching traffic pass
around them. The woman 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 at the
man, pounding on her steering wheel and dash. The light turns yellow and
the woman begins to blow the car horn, flips him off, and screams
profanity and curses at the man.
The man, looks up, sees the yellow light and accelerates through the
intersection just as the light turns red.
The woman is beside herself, screaming in frustration as she misses her
chance to get through the intersection. As she is still in mid-rant she
hears a tap on her window and looks up into the barrel of a gun held by a
very serious looking 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 then handcuffs her and takes her 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 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. 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.
Naturally I assumed you had stolen the car."
