The Yellow Light


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,  as she missed her chance to get through the intersection,   dropping her cell  phone and makeup.
As she was 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, fingerprinted,  photographed, and placed in a holding  cell.
After a couple of  hours, a policeman approached the 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 cussing a blue streak at  him.
I noticed the 'What  Would Jesus Do' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license  plate holder, the 'Follow Me to Sunday-School' bumper  sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the  trunk, so naturally I assumed you had stolen the  car.''  ______________  Priceless
