would it be alright if I rang one of you to bail me out of jail? Perhaps there could even be some sort of fund to dip into to share the cost-bearing. Tonight up here on the hill I made a strike for the rights of the common man.
I may have mentioned before that our little town up here is really only three streets wide and as the three conjoin there is a sweeping bend which makes the whole thing verrrrrrrrrrrry narrow and I turn around there to go home.
As I came up beside the bank there was a police car stopped in front of me. He was sitting there chatting to the occiffer in the police car beside him.
Both of them stopped on double yellow lines. Taking up the entire width of the road. So after a few seconds I gently beeped my horn. The van drove off and the police car rolled forward indicating I should wind down my window. Obvbiously it was at this point that I should feel all submissive and respectful b/c he was driving a police car.
'Did you just beep your car horn at me?'
'Well you shouldn't because I am driving a police car and I can send you to prison.'
'Well you shouldn't be stopped on double yellow lines.'
'Is there a problem?'
'Yes. I need to get home to my children.'
'No I won't b/c if it had been anyone else stopped like that blocking the road you would have had something to say about it.'
'It is illegal to beep your horn when you are stationary Madam.'
'Well I wouldn't have been stationary if you hadn't been stopped there!' And then drove away.
I figured it would all be okay in the end b/c I was driving CK's car ;-
