Plus he had a sense of humor.
Was driving, and in front of me was a county cop. His brake lights weren’t working…he had a center light but not the ones on the corners of the car…so when we came up to the next stoplight, I flashed my lights at him to get his attention, got out and walked up to his window.
“Your brake lights don’t appear to be working, officer”.
He thanked me for letting him know. Told me someone else had already told him about it and he was en-route to the garage to have it looked at.
I couldn’t resist though: “Imna let you off with a warning this time young man” I said with as straight face as I could manage, “But get those fixed, ok? I don’t wanna have to give you a citation”.
He laughed out loud, thanked me for telling him and for “cutting him some slack”, and I went back to the car.
The light changed and he drove off.
