Running from the Cops
A senior citizen in Florida bought a brand new Mercedes convertible. He took off down the road, flooring it to 80 mph and enjoying the
wind blowing through what little hair he had left on his head. "This is great," he thought as he roared down I-75. He pushed the
pedal to the metal even more. Then he looked in his rear view mirror and saw a highway patrol trooper behind him, blue lights flashing and siren
"I can get away from him with no problem," thought the man and he
tromped it some more and flew down the road at over 100 mph. Then 110, 120
mph. Then he thought, "What am I doing? I'm too old for this kind of thing." He
pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the trooper to catch up
The trooper pulled in behind the Mercedes and walked up to the man. "Sir," he said, looking at his watch. "My shift ends in 30 minutes
and today is Friday. If you can give me a reason Why you were speeding
that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."
The man looked at the trooper and said, "Years ago my wife ran off
with a Florida State trooper, and I thought you were bringing her back."
The trooper replied, "Sir, have a nice day."
