As one of the officers was taking out his book to fine her, she told him she did not care, and urged him to let her go !
" Where are you going ? ", the other policeman asked.
" To the disco ", she blurted out !
" Stop messing about, and get out of your car right now !", the officer ordered angrily.
Now, imagine the rest ...
A 80-year-old lady in dressing-gown and pyjamas on her way to the disco at nearly 1.00 am ...
The two officers exchanged glances as though reading each other's minds.
' Poor little granny ! She must not have all her faculties ! What a drag it is getting old **! '
My mother-in-law was awfully ashamed and in a tizzy ( the clock was ticking), but she managed to calm down and explained the whole matter.
The officers burst out laughing and let her do her job.
That was a happy end , but anyway remember :
Whatever may happen, make sure you are ready for it !!
