A 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 gray hair he had left.
Amazing, he thought, as he flew down the highway, pushing the pedal even more.
Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him, lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120.
Suddenly he thought, What am I doing? Iâ€™m too old for this, and pulled over to await the trooperâ€™s arrival.
Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch, and said, â€œSir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that Iâ€™ve never heard before, Iâ€™ll let you go.â€
The old gentleman paused. Then he said, â€œYears ago, my wife ran off with a state trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.â€
â€œHave a good day, sir,â€ replied the trooper.
