Joke of the day
Another of those little stories you just have to love.
A motorcycle officer stops a vehicle that has ran a red light. The driver is a real jerk and comes running back to the officer and asks why he is being harassed by the Gestapo and the officer calmly tells the driver of the red light violation.
The driver goes into a tirade, and questioning the officer's ancestry, sexual orientation etc.
The officer takes it all in professional stride and writes the ticket and places an "AH" in the bottom right hand corner - Narration" The officer hands the driver the ticket and requests a signature.
The driver angrily signs the ticket and notices the "AH" and demands to know what that is for.
The officer removes his mirror like sunglasses and gets in the drivers face and in a low voice says "So that when we get in court in three months time, I can remember that you are an asshole!"
Three months later, in court, the driver has hired a lawyer, as his driving record is not what you would call perfect, and he expects to lose his license.
The officer gives his evidence on the driver running a red light. Then under cross examination, the driver's lawyer asks if this is the ticket the officer had issued.
"Yes, this is the defendant's cop of the ticket I issued" states the officer.
Lawyer then asks " Is there any particular marking or notation on this ticket that you don't normally make?"
The officer says "Yes in the bottom right hand corner, in the Narrative box, is the AH underlined"
Lawyer "What does the AH stand for, officer?"
Officer " Aggressive and Hostile"
Lawyer " Are you sure?"
Officer " Yes sir."
Lawyer " Are you sure that it doesn't stand for asshole?"
Officer " Well sir, I am sure you know your client better than I do"
