The other night, I was driving the down the street when I decided to pull a car over for a lighting violation. I put my overheads on and the vehicle started to slow down.
As it pulled to the curb, it seemed like the driver didn’t know what to do. Instead of stopping, the vehicle kept going and turned abruptly into a parking lot.
After the vehicle stopped, I walked up to door and asked the driver, who was about 18 years old, for his license. The driver was nervous as he tried to get his license out of his wallet. When he finally got it out he said, “I’m nervous. This is the first time I have ever been stopped.”
“I’m a lot of people’s first,” I said hoping he’d get my joke.
The driver smiled and said, “You popped my cherry.”
OMG. That had to be one of the funniest things I’d ever heard on a car stop. I laughed and handed him back his license as I said, “That was funny.” I then waved at him and walked away.
You just never know what people are going to say at work.
