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 I-85, 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? I'm too old for this,"
and pulled over to await the trooper's arrival. Pulling in behind him, the
trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch, and said, "Sir, my
shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for
speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."
The old gentleman paused. Then he said, "Years ago, my wife ran off with a
I thought you were bringing her back."
"Have a good day, sir," replied the trooper.
