You're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat

I stop a guy for driving with a revoked license. He has no insurance on the car, so I impound it.

Officer Cynical: "I would suggest you take anything valuable out of the car before the tow truck gets here."

Mr. Foyt: "I have some tools in there."

Officer Cynical: "Fine. Go ahead and get them. Will you be able to walk home with them or do you want a ride?"

Mr. Foyt: "If you could give me a ride, that would be great."

Officer Cynical: "No problem. Get your tools and we'll go."

Mr. Foyt proceeds to stack 2 large tool boxes full of tools, a gigantic suitcase full of clothes, two pairs of mud-caked work boots, a set of PGA tour-worthy golf clubs, and - I kid you not - a full-sized 2-ton floor jack on the side of the road.

Officer Cynical: "This isn't exactly what I had in mind. There's no room in the trunk, and you'll never get all that stuff in the back seat. Have you got a friend you can call to help you move it?"

Mr. Foyt: "Yeah, I'll call him right now."

As the tow truck is hauling off his car and I'm driving away, Mr. Foyt's friend shows up. On his motorcycle.

Just wanted to say I came over from Dr. Grumpy's blog, and read your entire site in one sitting. Just bookmarked you, and look forward to reading! I have the utmost respect for law enforcement and your ability to maintain decorum while dealing with the utter stupidity you see on a daily basis (thank you for that).

The last line was the icing on the cake. Priceless, I laughed so much. XD After I facepalmed.
