A good excuse

A Florida Senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out

of the dealership.


Taking off down the road, he floored it

to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing

through what little hair he had left.


"Amazing," he thought as he flew down I-75,

pushing the pedal even more.


Looking in his rear view

mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him, blue lights

flashing and siren blaring.


He floored it to 100 mph...then 110...

then 120. Suddenly he thought, "What am

I doing? I'm too old for this," and pulled over to await the trooper's arrival.


Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to

the Corvette, looked at his

watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you

can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll

let you go."


The old gentleman paused, then said, "Years ago, my

wife ran off with a Florida

State Trooper. I thought you were him

bringing her back."


"Have a good day, sir," replied the trooper.
