Conversations with cops
Police officer: Do you know why I stopped you?
Jess: If I was guessing I would say my speed.
PO: You guessed right, whats your hurry?
Me: No hurry really
PO: Then why were you going so fast?
Me: I dunno, I guess I wasn't expecting you. I had my cruise set.
PO: Well, I was there and saw you, 90 is a little high for a cruise don't ya think?
Me: Yes, I noticed. Usually go at 85 but got brave I guess today, thought you would be unwrapping presents today.
PO: Didn't I stop you here about a month ago.
Me: To use police terminology, that is a 10-4.
PO: Did I not tell you to slow down?
Me: Yes, but I thought you would be eating christmas turkey today and the coast was clear.
Me: You want all my drivers license stuff?
PO: Well yeah. Are you a slow learner or are just defiant?
Me: Probably a little of both.
PO: OK, well take this back. (Hands me license) and slow down.
Me: OK, where does your patrol district end?
PO: I won't tell you.
Me: Come on, I am just curious.
PO: Matter of fact, I think I will leave ahead of you, are you going to pass me?
Me: Only if you go under the speed limit.
PO: Merry Christmas Jess.
Me: Yes, Merry Christmas seargent, see you in a month or so?
PO: You are amazing. Yes, hopefully in a cafe, not on the side of the highway.
I then had to follow him for 35 miles at the speed limit, that is hard for me to do.
