A man was being tailgated by a “stressed-out” woman on a busy street. Suddenly, the light turned yellow just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.
The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration because she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup in the process!
Still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, finger printed, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.
After a couple of hours, a policeman approached her cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.
He said, “I’m very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, “flipping off the guy” in front of you, and cursing a blue streak at him. I noticed your What Would Jesus Do bumpersticker, your Choose Life license plate holder, your Follow Me to Sunday-School bumpersticker, and your chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on your trunk. Naturally, I assumed you had stolen the car.
“Your are the light of the world…” (Matthew 5:14)
