The driver of the car, my friend, didn’t even hesitate for a second before he retorted: “Sorry officer, I got here as fast as I could.” The officer was in tears for the next 20 seconds, laughing uncontrollably. My friend got off with a warning and the officer told him that was the first time anyone had made him laugh that hard while he was on duty.
