An Encounter with the Police

police-large

 

I was pulled over by the police this morning in a village near home. Two cars with blue lights flashing surrounded me and 3 officers came up to the car when I stopped. They said that my number plate had shown up as a stolen car.

They then realised that it should be a fast Audi…

 and not an elderly Land Rover…

After checking over the car, they asked for ID, and all got very embarrassed when they saw I was a vicar.

They were then more embarrassed to discover that the number recognition software had read an 8 as a 6 on the numberplate (i.e. their detector has number dyslexia).

They waved me off saying, ‘well, it will be a good sermon story…’
