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… 🙂
