“Yes officer, I did see the ‘speed limit’ sign, I just didn’t see you!” ~ Unknown
No apologies for the jokes, I’m in that kind of mood, but maybe I should apologise for another re-blog, (re-worked) from my now dormant site Facts and Fiction.
Fictional article published in response to the daily word-prompt ‘Inhabit‘
The Man: -“You need to go faster, you’re going too slow.”
The Woman: “I’m not driving slow I’m driving at the speed limit.”
A car speeds past on the outside lane.
The Man: “I said you were going too slow and now look, we’ve been overtaken by a car that’s even older than ours”
The Woman: “What’s the age of the car got to do with anything?”
The Man: “I’m just saying.”
The Woman: “Well, don’t say anything else, you’re beginning to annoy me.”
The car slows down for the traffic lights and they see a stationary car that a minute earlier had overtaken theirs.
The Woman: “It didn’t get very far did it?”
The man remained silent, the lights change and the cars move off.
The Woman: “I’m going to stop off at the convenience store that’s around the next bend, you needn’t come in, I’ll be quick.”
A few minutes later and the woman returns to the car and finds the man is sitting in the driving seat.
The woman: “What are you doing?”
The man: “If it’s all the same to you I’d like to get there before lunch, so I thought I’d do the driving.”
The woman gets into the passenger seat and slams the door behind her. A little further down the road she pushes her foot down onto an imaginary brake.
“The man laughs: “You don’t have a brake and we’re not going that fast!”
The woman: You’re already over the speed limit, please don’t go any faster.”
The man says nothing but slowly presses his foot down on the accelerator. Suddenly a white car sporting a blue flashing light draws up alongside them and the uniformed driver beckons them to pull over.
The Policeman: “Do you know what speed you were travelling at sir?”
The woman gets out of the car “You’re on your own for this mate, I’m off to catch a bus!”
