While driving it off the lot he decides to take it on the highway and really open things up.
He hits the speed limit of 70MPH and continues to accelerate.
75MPH… 80MPH…. and out of nowhere a siren and the flashing lights of a patrol car come into view of his rear-view mirror.
Thinking his new car could easily outrun the police, he speeds up further until he’s going well over 120MPH but the cop is still in pursuit.
Realizing how stupid he is being, he slows down and pulls over.
The cop pulls behind him, gets out and storms over to the car.
The man is so distraught and apologizes profusely and explains that he had just bought the car and made the dumbest mistake of his life.
Feeling pity, and it being at the end of his shift, the cop says that if the man can make him laugh, he’ll let him go without reprimand.
Thinking for a moment, he responds: “Well sir, about a week ago, my wife left me for a Sheriff and I thought you were trying to bring her back!”
