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 was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.
While she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked into the face of a very serious officer. The officer ordered her to exit the vehicle with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed and placed into a holding cell.
After a couple of hours, a officer 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 this mistake,” he said. “You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at him. Then I noticed the ‘What Would Jesus Do?’ bumper sticker, the ‘Choose Life’ license plate holder, the ‘Follow Me to Sunday School’ bumper sticker, and the Christian fish emblem on the trunk. Naturally, I assumed you had stolen the car.”
