A senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette out of the dealership.
Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph,enjoying the wind
blowing through what little hair he had left. "Amazing," he thought
as he flew down I-75, pushing the pedal even more.
Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw the highway patrol behind
him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph,
then 110, then 120.
Suddenly he thought, "What am I doing? I'm too old for this," and
pulled over to await the Trooper's arrival.
Pulling in behind him, the Trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked
at his watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes.. Today is Friday.
If you can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll
let you go."
The old gentle man paused. Then said, "Years ago, my wife ran off with a State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back."
"Have a good day, Sir," replied the Trooper.
