“I tried to stop. Honest I did,” the woman said.
“My car. My beautiful car.” The man was crying. “Look what you did to my beautiful car.”
Then she turned on him. “Oh, get over.” At that, she walked back to her Chevy. She was tired of men crying every time they got a little scratch. She waited for the police.
“She hit me,” the man said when the police arrived.
The cop said, “Oh, get over it. I hate it when men cry. Grow up.” He finished taking the man’s statement. The man’s name was Phillip Mason. The cop then rubbed the scratch on the man’s car. “Nice Porsche.”
“Not anymore.” He passed his insurance card over to the cop. “Give it to her. I don’t even want to get close to her.” He walked the card over to Jane Hughes, gave it to her and took her information. The cop walked her card back over to Phillip. Then he said to Phillip,” I’m going to have to write you a ticket.”
“What? But my car,” Phillip wanted to scream. Instead he cried the words.
“Seems it’s your car that caused the accident.” The cop pointed to all the people standing around. Then he passed the ticket over to Phillip and had him sign the paper. “Next time be more careful. You could hurt somebody with that thing.” He pointed to the Porsche.
The cop went back to his cruiser, then drove away.
As the crowd dispersed, Phillip got in his Porsche and cried out to God, “Why me?”
God whispered back, “Oh, get over. At least, you get to drive around in a Porsche. I’m still driving an Edsel.”
