A few weeks ago, it was a rainy Friday night when I heard one of the dumbest excuses ever. It was 2AM when I arrived at a crash where an officer pointed to a driver and said he was unlicensed.
During the interview with the driver I asked, “Who owns the car you were driving?”
“Does she know you don’t have a license.”
After I was done talking with the son, I spoke to mom.
“Did you know he is unlicensed?” I asked.
“Why did you let him drive.”
“He was practicing.”
Practicing? That was the best she could come up with ?
“In the middle of the night and in the rain?” I asked with a surprised tone in my voice.
In the end, the car was impounded for 30 days. Mom and son both got tickets. Mom for allowing an unlicensed person to drive her car and son for being unlicensed.
Here’s the ironic part. Mom was the one who called the cops because she thought the other driver was DUI…… He wasn’t.
People will never cease to disappoint us in new and unique ways….
