Two cars were waiting behind one another at a
stoplight. The light turned green, but the man didn't notice it. A woman in the car behind

The woman is going ballistic inside her car, ranting and raving at the man, pounding on
her steering wheel and dash. The light turns yellow. The woman begins to
blow the car horn, flips him off, and scream curses at the man.
The driver in the lead car, hearing the commotion, looks up, sees the yellow light and

policeman orders her to exit her car with her hands up. She gets out of the car and he
orders her to turn and place her hands on her car. She turns, places her hands on the car

flipping that guy off, and cussing a blue streak at the car in front of you. Then I
noticed the "Choose GOD" license plate holder, the "What Would Jesus
Do" and "Follow Me to Sunday School" bumper stickers, and the chrome plated
Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally I assumed you had stolen the car."
