A good excuse
A 767 pilot was driving home late one afternoon,
and he was driving above the speed limit. He
notices a police car with its red lights on in
his rear view mirror. He thinks "I can outrun
this guy," so he floors it and the race is on.
The cars are racing down the highway -- 60, 70,
80, 90 miles an hour. Finally, as his speedometer
passes 100, the 767 driver figures "what the heck,"
and gives up. He pulls over to the curb.
The police officer gets out of his cruiser and
approaches the car. He leans down and says
"Listen mister, I've had a really lousy day,
and I just want to go home. Give me a good
excuse and I'll let you go."
The man of the skys thought for a moment and
said, "Three weeks ago, my wife ran off with a
police officer. When I saw your cruiser in my
rear view mirror, I thought you were that officer
and you were trying to give her back!"
