Out of the Blue

The happiest words one can hear from the judge in traffic court: "You are present, but the officer involved is not. Would you like to make a motion to dismiss for failure to prosecute?" My response? "If it please The Court, it would certainly please me." The judge couldn't have been more jovial: "Not to worry, The Court is always pleased... case dismissed!"

Thank you officer Jones, I hope you enjoyed the evening as much as I did. =]

Also, wouldn't you think that if you lived with somebody you'd notice if they were building themselves a guillotine?

Good point!

Well, no... but it couldn't be any worse than finding someone who whacked himself with a shotgun, and that happens quite a bit - selfish suicidal bastards. Also, wouldn't you think that if you lived with somebody you'd notice if they were building themselves a guillotine?

-----------------------------------------
Of course I could be wrong... but really, what are the chances of that happening twice?

No one else said it, so I am sorry to say I have to.

Finally a Playboy where one could honestly say they only bought it for the articles.

I am sorry.

Didn't I read a while back that you never got tickets?
Seems we're hearing more & more stories about your traffic court appearances. Hmmmmm.

I don't know where you think you read that, but I never said I never got tickets.

I've had three traffic court appearances and one speeding conviction... not that I'm proud of that, but I haven't hidden it at all.

Reminds me of a coworker talking about her neighbors. They would only go out to mow the lawn after dark...and they used flashlights.

Your coworker wouldn't be Tom Hanks, would it?
Sounds like the "The 'Burbs".

So, what should I expect if the guy that lives next to me (hasn't so much as made eye contact w/me in over 3 years despite my early attempts to say hello) goes outside at 4:00 AM on a clear night to check the stability of his rain gutters by climbing a 30 ft extension ladder and pound on them with a hammer?

Officers were called to the scene after the victim's father made the discovery on Monday.

can you imagine walking in on that?

They kept themselves to themselves

isn't that always the case?? "he was a quiet man....sometimes I would see him mowing the lawn in an executives suit in 100 degree heat but otherwise he kept to himself"
