A policeman stops a driver and asks for her driver’s license.
The cop points out, “Miss, your license says that you should be wearing glasses.”
The woman innocently answered, “Well, I have contacts.”
The policeman angrily said, “I don’t care who you know! You’re getting a ticket!”
Comedian gives the backstory
Have you ever had one of those moments where you wish you could just disappear into thin air? Let me tell you about a friend of mine who had a run-in with the law that left her feeling more “guilty” than a kid with a chocolate-covered face caught near an empty cookie jar.
There she was, driving down the road, minding her own business, feeling all cool and confident in her car. Suddenly, she sees the red and blue flashing lights in the rearview mirror, and her heart drops faster than a failed soufflé! She’s being pulled over by none other than the ‘fashion police’ – a.k.a the real-life cop.
Now, this officer comes up to her window, all serious and official-like. He looks at her and says, “Miss, your license says you should be wearing glasses!” To which she promptly replied, “Well, I have contacts.”
You’d think that’d be a clever excuse, right? I mean, who needs glasses when you’ve got contacts? But no, this cop, he ain’t having it! He fires back, “I don’t care who you know! You’re getting a ticket!” And just like that, folks, her hope of escaping with a mere warning vanished faster than my willpower when faced with a tub of ice cream.
Seriously, who knew law enforcement had such a passion for eye care, right? I mean, forget speed limits and seat belts; these cops are all about making sure you’re up to date with your eyeglass prescriptions.
I can just imagine her thinking, “Man, if only I had known, I’d have worn glasses – the cutest ones I could find – just for this occasion.”
But you know what they say, folks – the law is the law, and sometimes, even your snazziest pair of contacts won’t save you from getting a ticket. It’s like, “Hey officer, can’t we just settle this with a friendly game of Rock, Paper, Scissors?” But nah, they don’t go for that.
Next time you’re out there cruising, remember – it’s not just about buckling up; it’s about seeing clearly too. And if you don’t want to become best friends with a ticket, make sure you’ve got the right eyewear on – whether it’s glasses, contacts, or even a pair of binoculars for good measure.
