A senior citizen in Punta Gorda, Florida bought a brand new Mercedes convertible. He took off down the road, flooring it to 90 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 blaring.
“I can get away from him with no problem”, thought the man and he pushed the pedal to the floor and flew down the road passing 100 mph… then 110… up to 120 mph!
Then he thought, “What the heck am I doing? I’m too old for this kind of thing.” So he pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the trooper to catch up with him.
The trooper pulled in behind the Mercedes and walked up to the driver’s window. After looking at the old man – then at his watch, he said, “Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes and today is Friday. If you can give me a reason that I’ve never heard before on why you were speeding, I’ll let you go.”
The man looked at the trooper and answered, “Years ago my wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.”
“Sir,” the trooper replied, “You have a nice day.”
