So don't do this

A man was being tailgated by a stressed-out woman on a busy boulevard. Suddenly, the light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, 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 policeman 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 streakat 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 thechrome-platedChristian fish emblem on the trunk; naturally...

I assumed you had stolen the car.''

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within. Douglas MacArthur

That was great RC! Reminded me of the time I was behind someone with a bumper sticker that said "honk if you love Jesus". So I did with a big smile on my face and they gave me the finger.

That is so fitting. LOL. When I was waiting tables, I always hated working on Sundays because the majority of the "churchy" type people that came in were grouchy, rude, impatient, judgemental, and lousy tippers.

Hm, kinda makes you wonder.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I'll have to take them out of my night stand drawer and put them in my glove box in the car. I'm especially looking forward to the frisking part, that is of course, only if arresting a male!
