The streetlight turned yellow, so he stopped his car at the crosswalk instead of accelerating through the intersection to beat the red light.
The woman who was driving behind him got angry and started honking her horn. She was mad that she missed her chance to tailgate him through the ...intersection, and because stopping the car made everything on her lap drop to the floor: cell phone, makeup, and half a sandwich.
She was still in mid-rant, yelling and cussing at the man in front of her, when she heard a tap on her window and looked up to see the face of a very serious police officer.
The cop ordered her to exit the vehicle with her hands up. He took her to the police station to be searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.
After a couple of hours, she was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal belongings. "I'm very sorry for this mistake, miss. When I pulled up behind your car, you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you, and cussing up a storm. I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do' bumper sticker on the car, the 'Choose Life' license plate frame, the 'Follow Me to Sunday-School' decal, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so I naturally assumed you had stolen the car. :/ My Bad! :)"
Remember what Gandhi said, everybody: "An ounce of practice is worth more than a ton of preaching."
