I just got pulled over by the cops because my high beams were on.

Of course, I didn’t know my high beams were on, so I had no idea why the cop leaped out into the road to stop me. Here’s my internal monologue:

Hey, cops up ahead. Shitty job on a rainy day. My speed is ok, because I just slowed down to go through the flood back there. Oh. Oh my GOD! He’s pulling me over! Jeez! Is it a headlight? Brake light? Has there been a problem somewhere? Hey, they can’t pull me over, I work for the Co-Op. I’m driving a Co-Op car. Maybe they think I stole it? Oh God. What if they think I stole it? I can’t go to jail, I have to buy chips! Maybe they just want to know about the Co-Op. Do I have flyers? I have flyers. Ok. I can give him a flyer.

I pulled the car over.

Cop: Are you having trouble seeing? Because your high beams are on.
Me: Oh. I didn’t know. Thanks. (Turn them off)

The speed of thought is faster than the speed of light or sound, for sure.

    Cops are so funny. Like, he couldn’t just say, “Hey, your high beams are on.” He has to say, “Are you having trouble seeing?”

    I got pulled over a few months ago because I was (inadvertently) speeding in a school zone (it was mid-day, no kids were out, no signs were out saying to slow and I just forgot it was a school right there) and the guy was like, “Are you in a hurry?”

    Wah, I know! Cops need to keep it official or else, what? I’ll start a civil war with my high beams?

    The funny thing was, I totally didn’t notice the high beams sign on the dash because I was watching the road so closely, because the rain and flooding was so bad. I was being overly-cautious!
