'I'm Gonna Call the Cops!'

This morning, I did something that I've never done before. I've never been an aggressive driver, so if another driver tries to push me around, I let them have both sides of the road. Today, I was pulling out of a public driveway and there was a state police car parked off to the side, with their left window down. A man was standing next to this vehicle, smiling and visiting with the officer. It was apparent that they probably knew each other well. As I tried to squeeze past them, the man tucked his behind in a bit, to give me enough room to get through. Then a mischievous, sarcastic little voice on the inside of me, rose up! I power buttoned my right window down and threatened, 'I'm gonna call the cops!' Both of them laughed, realizing that I'm just a half pint grandmother, having a power surge Photo:borrowed from Pixabay

that is awesome. The police officers here probably wouldn't have found the humor in it.

Almost all our police officers know us, it's such a small town.

Excuse me, maybe not understood very well, because the translation. Did you want to call the police, to report the driver who almost wants to push you off the road?

Nope, I was speaking to a 'policeman', who was almost blocking a drive-thru, with their car!

@kobesbuddy I see. However, I would almost be "afraid" to joke with the cops. This is because if I find that agent, who wants really "break", he could find me something wrong with the car, maybe fine me, or if really strict, also stop the vehicle. In Italy, I do not trust.

@alberello75 In this small town, we have very little crime. The police are calm and friendly, usually knowing everyone they meet.

Good story and I have never been an aggressive driver either and usually let someone if they are doing wrong get on with it. Those Police have a very good sense of humour that is nice to hear something like that.

Well, I am glad you did that. They may just want to steer clear of the half-pint grandma, or they may want another laugh due to the antics of half-pint grandma.

LOL I'd make the front pages of our newspaper, 'Half-pint Grandma, incarcerated in the Iosco Country Jail.' She's armed(with a rolling pin) and considered very dangerous!
