five old ladies

Recommended Posts

sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers, a state patrol officer see's a car puttering along at 22 mph.

he thinks to himself,"this driver is just as dangerous as a speeder!"so he turns on his lights and siren and pulls the driver over. approaching the car, he notices that there are five old ladies, two in the front seat and three in the back, wide eyed and white as ghosts.

the driver, obviously confused, says to him,"officer i dont understand, i was doing exactly the speed limit! what seems to be the problem?"

"ma'am," the officer replies,"you weren't speeding, but you should know that driving slower then the speed limit also be dangerous to drivers"

"slower then the speed limit? no sir, i was doing the speed limit exactly twenty-two miles an hour!" says a bit proudly.

the state officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains to her that "22" was the route number, not the speed limit.a bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing that her error.

"but before i let you go, ma'am, i have to ask...is everyone in this car ok? these women seem awfully shaken and they haven't muttered a single peep this whole time," the officer asks.

"oh, they'll be all right in a minute officer. we just got off route 142."
