A woman bought a new Mercedes to celebrate her husband leaving her and was out on the motorway for a nice evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through her hair and she decided to open the car up.

As the needle jumped up to 120km/h, she suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind her.

“There’s no way they can catch a Mercedes,” she thought and opened the car up further. The needle hit 130, 140… Then the reality of the situation hit her. She slowed down and pulled over.

The cop came up to her, took her licence without a word and examined it and the car. “It’s been a long hard day, this is the end of my shift and it’s Friday the 13th,” he said. “I don’t feel like more paperwork, I don’t need the frustration or the overtime, so if you can give me a really good excuse for your driving that I haven’t heard before, you can go.”

The woman thinks about it for a second and says, “Last week, my no-good husband ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give him back!”

“Have a nice weekend,” said the officer.
