Letting the side down

A man was being tailgated by a seriously stressed out woman on a busy toad. Suddenly, the light turned to red in front of him.

He did the right thing and stopped, even though he just might have been able to speed through the intersection.

The woman behind nearly ran up the back of him. She hit the roof and the horn, screaming in absolute frustration as she missed her chance to get through the intersection.

While she was still swearing and carrying on, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious policeman. He told her to get out of the car and put her hands up. Then he took her to the police station where she was searched, finger printed, photographed, and put in a holding cell.

A couple of hours later, another policeman opened the door of the cell. He escorted the woman to the front counter where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.

He said, “I’m really sorry for this mistake, lady. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn and swearing so loudly and giving 'the finger' to the bloke in front. I noticed the 'Choose Life' sign on the back window, the ‘What Would Jesus Do?’ bumper sticker, the ‘Follow Me to Sunday-School’ bumper sticker and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the boot.

“Naturally, I assumed you had stolen the car.”
