1086. Justice is served

It wasn’t just depressing; it was downright infuriating. Nick had been stopped for speeding, and THE COP WAS YOUNGER THAN HE WAS.

You know you’re getting old when the cop who stops you for speeding is younger than you are. There was a time when Nick was always younger than the cop. He would always say, sorry officer, it must be youthful enthusiasm; I won’t do it again. The old cop would let him off with a warning. But now THE COP WAS YOUNGER THAN HE WAS. These days he was never let off with a warning.

Nick took the cop to court. Nick was a top class lawyer. He knew the law and how to manipulate it. He made sure that the upstart wasn’t going to be stopping him again. The cop’s looking for another job if you’ve got a vacancy.

    You know you’re getting old when the cop who stops you for speeding is younger than you are. The wisdom of the aphorism is humbling to those on the wrong side of youth. Now I know what’s wrong with most of the traffic cops. One time I was stopped for ‘not using my seat belt’ by a cute lady barely out of her teens. What was outrageous I had me seat belt on. We had a long chat and I didn’t repent even a second of it. 🙂

    Believe it or not, we once got an apology from a young cop. He thought we took an illegal right turn but he didn’t know that the right turn was prohibited only between 6 am and 10 am. When we pointed it out, he apologised

      I was once stopped by a cop and he didn’t recognise me – but I had taught him at school. So I told him off in no uncertain terms, and then he recognised me and let me off!

    These days, everyone is younger than I am! Poor cop – he stopped an older person with an axe to grind. The Orange Country Sheriiff’s office could use him – they all look like teenagers.
