My Uncle John sent me this little story back in 2011. I came across it again this week, while looking through older posts.
I don’t know if it’s true, but I hope it is!!
The Yellow Light
The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the cross walk, 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.
As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up.
He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.
After a couple of hours, a police 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.
He said, ”I’m very sorry for this mistake. 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. 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 chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally….I assumed you had stolen the car.”
Hope you enjoyed that ‘story’ as much as I do! I will probably publish more re-runs this spring because I am looking through them trying to find a contest entry among them. Of course, the number of my readers has increased over the years and only my ‘oldest’ ones will remember these!
If any of my posts stuck with you, and you would like to see it again – don’t be shy! Requests flatter me to no end 🙂
