Cop With a Sense du Ha-Ha

Published May 8, 2011 - 6 Comments

I was asked by a RCMP officer yesterday to produce my vehicle registration, which I promptly did.  Upon quick inspection he kindly said to me:  “You have to remember to sign this.”

Crap.  I remember getting it in the mail months ago and thinking that I had to do that.  Opps.

“Do you know why?” he asked me.   I shook my head.

He took  his pen and pretended to sign my name on the front and back…

“See, I could sign your name here… and then on the back sign the car over to me, and sign your name again… there, you just sold me your car.”

I don’t think he was expecting my response…

How much will you give me for it?”

He laughed, and said  “It’s a $178 fine.”

“Oh…  no thank you” I replied… and quickly signed it as he handed it back to me.

Maybe it was one of those things that you just had to be there for… but I thought that it was kinda funny… 🙂
