Saturday Funny: Never underestimate an old geezer

A Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership.

Taking off down the road, he pushed it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left. “Amazing,” he thought as he flew down I-95, pushing the pedal even more.

Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a Florida State Trooper, blue lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, Then 120.

Suddenly he thought, “What am I doing? I’m too old for this!,” and pulled over to await the trooper’s arrival.

Pulling in behind him, the trooper got out of his vehicle and walked up to the Corvette. He looked at his watch, then said, “Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a new reason for speeding — a reason I’ve never before heard — I’ll let you go.”

The old gentleman paused then said: “Three years ago, my wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.”

“Have a good day, sir,” replied the trooper.

  3. Great graphic! When I read this I had a PTSD flashback and wished it happened to me, in terms of my truly crazy ex-wife. THAT was funny… but then I had to return to reality.

  7. One has to love wise old geezers, rofl. State Troopers and ‘vettes give me nightmares..I turned down the offer of a dinner-date in exchange for a ticket…cost me $2K to get out of that decision…wish I’d thought of something better than “no thank you”. Duh!
