Banking On Common Sense

, , , | Legal | May 20, 2018

(I am out taking care of some errands one afternoon when I turn down the street for my bank and see several police cars, all with lights flashing, in the bank’s parking lot. I immediately pull off into an empty parking lot and turn around going back the way I came. Just then one of the police cars comes FLYING out of the bank’s parking lot and pulls me over.)

Officer: “Do you know why I pulled you over?”

Me: “Um, no, sir. I don’t.”

Officer: “Well, I noticed you headed for the bank but you turned back around.”

Me: “Yes, sir, I did.”

Officer: “Well, I just noticed that when you saw us you immediately turned around.”

Me: “This is true.”

Officer: *staring at me expectantly* “Okay…?”

Me: *confused* “Okay?”

Officer: *clearly still waiting for an explanation* “Sooo…?”

Me: *still confused about why I got pulled over* “Sooo… why am I going to go into a bank surrounded by cops?”

(He literally jumped back in surprise like that question had never crossed his mind. He let me go with a warning to “Be careful out there.” Way ahead of you, buddy.)
