Quick Thinking

A senior citizen drove his brand new Jaguar convertible out of the car salesroom.

Taking off down the motorway, He floored it to 160kmh, enjoying the wind rushing through what little hair he had left.

“Amazing!” he thought as he blew down the motorway, enjoying punishing the pedal to the fullest extent even more.

Looking into his rear view mirror, he saw a police car behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring.

“I can easily get away from him – no problem!” thought the elderly nutcase as he floored it to 180kmh, then 220 then 240kmh.

But all of a sudden, he realised the hard fact: “What on earth am I doing? I’m too old for this nonsense!”

So he pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the police car to catch up with him.

Pulling up behind him, the police officer walked to the driver’s side of the Jaguar, looked at his watch and said,
“Sir, this is Friday today and I’ll be off duty in another 10 minutes to enjoy my weekend. So if you can give me a valid reason why you were speeding, I’ll let you go.”

The old man, after a thought and looking seriously at the policeman, replied in a dignified tone:
“Years ago, my wife ran off with a policeman. I thought you were bringing her back.”

“Have a GOOD day, Sir”, uttered the policeman
