Sidewalking Tall

, , , | Working | November 17, 2017

(I have just been involved in an accident where a car, in the process of avoiding a collision, mounted the pavement and hit me. It isn’t serious, as the car wasn’t going very fast. An ambulance and police car arrive. While an EMT looks me over, a police officer asks me questions.)

Officer: “How fast were you going?”

Me: “Uh, walking speed, I guess.”

Officer: *not believing me* “Sure. And were you wearing a seatbelt?”

(The EMT gives me a funny look as we both realise the officer has gotten me confused with the guy who hit me.)

Me: “Uh, no.”

Officer: *scolding me* “You’re old enough to know how important they are, so why wouldn’t you wear it?!”

Me: “I didn’t know they came with pavements.”

(This set the EMT off and he practically fell over laughing. The officer blushed and ran off. Another officer ended up having to finish the questioning.)
