Excuse for Speeding

On his 60th birthday, Jeff bought himself a brand new Corvette convertible. He took off down the road, flooring it to 80 mph and enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left on his head.

“This is great,” he thought as he roared down the Florida highway. He decided to see how fast this baby could really go pushing the pedal to the metal. He looked in his rear view mirror and saw a State Trooper behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring.

“I can get away from him with no problem” Jeff thought as he flew down the road at over 150 mph.

But then it suddenly hit him. “What am I doing? I’m too old for this kind of thing.”

He pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the trooper to catch up with him. The trooper pulled in behind the Corvette and walked up to the car.

“Sir, my shift ends in 10 minutes and today is Friday. If you can give me a reason why you were speeding that I’ve never heard before, I’ll let you go.”

Jeff looked at the Trooper and said, “Years ago my wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper…I thought you were bringing her back”

“Have a great day,” said the Trooper.
