Unit 4 Good Excuse单元 4 好借口
There was a middle-aged man who bought a Mercedes convertible 2000.
He took off down the road, flooring it up to 80 mph and enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left on his head.
"This is great," he thought and floored it some more.
He looked in his rearview mirror and sees a State Patrol behind him.
"I can get away from him with no problem," thought the man and flew down the road at over 100 mph.
Then he thought, "What am I doing? I'm too old for this kind of thing," and pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the police officer.
The officer pulled in behind the Mercedes and walked up to the man.
"Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes and today is Friday the 13th." "If you can give me a reason why you were speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."
The man looked back at the State Patrol and remarked, "Last week my wife ran off with a State Patrol officer, and I thought you were bringing her back!"
The State Patrol said, "Have a nice day!"
