I had a flat tire on I-75 yesterday; so, I pulled over, got
out of the car and opened my trunk. I took out my
cardboard men, unfolded them and stood them at the
rear of my car facing oncoming traffic. They look so
lifelike you wouldn't believe it!
Just as I had hoped, cars started slowing down looking
at the men which made it much safer for me to work
on the side of the road!
People honked and waved, and it wasn't long before a
police car pulled up behind me.
He wanted to know what the heck I was doing, so I calmly
explained that I was changing my flat. He told me he could
see that, but demanded to know what the heck my
cardboard men were doing standing at the rear of my car.
I couldn't believe he didn't know.... SO I told him....
"Well, DUH....,"I explained to the angry Policeman.....,
"They're my Emergency Flashers!!!!"
