Officer Adams was kind of a country boy. Out on a patrol one day he noticed a black Monte Carlo going through an intersection, failing to come to a complete stop. Turning on the flashing blues (okay reds depending on your location), he pulled the motorist over and cautiously approached the side of the man's car.
The man, appearing to be very business like, proceeded to speak.
"Hello Officer. What seems to be the problem?"
"Coincidentally sir, I was going to ask you that. You in a hurry?" The Officer knew the type from many similar situations.
"Well, I don't think I was speeding officer. And if I was, it couldn't have been by much. I'm an important business man and I do need to get to work, so can we move this along please?"
"Well sir, it wasn't that you were speeding. You ignored that stop sign back there." Trooper Adams was beginning to get annoyed at the man's arrogance. Important business man.....aren't they all?
" May I see your license, registration and proof of insurance sir?"
"Officer, really, this is very humiliating. Now look....."
The officer was getting impatient but maintained his composure. " Sir? The items please?!"
After running a check and seeing that the man had a reputation for speeding and running lights and stops signs, he returned to the car.
"Sir, this isn't the first time you've done this. I'm afraid I'm going to have to write you up a ticket for this."
"Officer, this is outrageous. I may not have stopped, but for God's sake, I did slow down!"
Normally very professional, officer Adams had heard enough.
Grabbing his 6 cell maglight he started beating the man over the head and promptly asked, "Now sir, would you like me to stop? Or just slow down?"
