It's A Bird! It's A Plane!!...No, That was Definitely A Bird
I have a close family member who is a detective. He does detective work and also routine traffic work. I admire him and love to hear about his adventures.
He drives in an unmarked car. Once he was going down the road and he pulled up next to a "lady" at a stop light. Her license plates were expired. He decided to just let her know about it and drive on. Her window was down so he kindly rolled his down and said, "Excuse me, I just thought I'd let you know your license plate tags are expired." A "lady" (or even a decent person) would have probably responded with something like, "Thank You" or "Oh, I wasn't aware. Thanks". Or something like that. This young "lady" however, responded by looking him in the eye and putting up that finger as she drove off. (You know the finger I'm talking about. The one that Doesn't mean Have A Nice Day).
Anyway, he smiled back at her, let her pull ahead of him, got behind her, turned on his lights and siren, pulled her over, and gave her a ticket for her expired license tags. WAHAHAHA!!
Can you image the feeling she had when she realized she had just saluted an officer? Whatever she felt, she deserved.
As for one liners, when he approached the vehicle, she said to him, "Oh, I'm sorry! I didn't know you were a cop!".
Maybe if we all treated everyone as if they could give us a ticket for being rude and obnoxious, the world would be a better place.
Have a Wonderful Day!
