Speeding with My Smart car

Smart car with hubs truck hidden!
We met another Smart car owner at McDonald's....it was fun for us to compare Smart cars.

I told him about the day before when we had drove it so well on the interstate, I said......

"My daughter was driving 80 mph and passed semi-trucks"

He said with a smile, "I am a police officer" (in ordinary clothes).... then I smiled and said......

"Oh, I meant that she was driving 55 mph, it just seemed like it was 80 since we were traveling along so good!"

He replied, "it is fine with me....I know the car will do 100 mph!"

All this happened this past weekend when my Daughter had driven me to the mountains to see Dad and my sisters.

It was my first long distance trip in my Smart Car.

I had worried myself almost sick about the car carrying a wheelchair.

The lesson here is a lot of our worries is needless....
and you never know who you are talking to!

LOL! I could almost see your face as he told you he was a police officer! I think I would have gulped loudly and turned all shades of red! This was too funny!

Ginny said...

What a cool story, it really gave me a laugh! What a nice cop you met! I read somewhere that most of the fears we worry about never happen; then what a waste of brain energy! God tell us not to borrow troubles from the future, but don't you find that the hardest thing to do? I do. Some think that then we have no faith, but I think we are just cautious, God did give us our brains to use for problems!

The Elephant's Child said...

Such a cute little car. Is it possible that the gentleman in plain clothes was having a small joke with you, and is in fact a plumber, dentist, whatever? I ask because this is the kind of joke my youngest brother delights in.

Rachel said...

I couldn't help but laugh...It just goes to show, we don't always know who we might be speaking with...
Should we call you Speed Racer now?

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

I do not think he was joking since he was an older man with his wife. When I looked guilty his wife said, Oh he does not care if you speed.

Travelogue for the Universe said...

Flying high in the sky.... said...

what a beautiful and funny post!! you made me laugh!!!!!! thank you!!! very nice...very very nice :)

Webster said...

You were okay in any case - he can't ticket you for two reasons: he didn't witness the speeding, and you weren't driving. LOL I wouldn't tell your daughter that the car will go 100 mph, though! Oh, how much clearance is there when you open the trunk? It looks pretty close.

And I hate to admit it, but I am very jealous.
Very. Jealous.
