Trunk Monkey Police Bribe - When In Doubt, Let The Trunk Monkey Out!

Services for Real Estate Pros with U.S. Cybertek, Inc.
I so wish I had one of these little guys the summer after first year of college! I got pulled over by a State Trooper for going 5 miles over the speed limit while headed back to my parents from a friends house. When I asked him if he was serious (because the speed limit had just changed and I was slowing down) he started YELLING AT ME! Yep, yelling; and at the top of his rather powerful lungs, I might add. By the time he was done with his tirade and writing up the ticket ("Stupid little blond, rich girls that think the can get away with whatever they want!" etc.) I was literally crying so hard I could not talk . . . and I don't cry easily. Oh, that I had a Trunk Monkey that I might have sent after him!. . . Just to reason with him! ;)

This made me laugh out loud! I need a trunk monkey!! I can't tell you how many times this little guy would have come in so handy! Especially the time when he stated "I can decide whether to give you a ticket for driving to fast or flying too low".....where is that monkey when you need him!

You just never know what will set them off!  But Trunk Monkey is always there to act as a diversion!  LOL as always at T.M.!

Stephanie - LOL! Flying too low? That's awesome! ;) I'm cleaning out my trunk as you read this to make room for one!

Bill - I lived in fear of seeing that trooper for a couple weeks. . . until I learned that my Mom had called his superior and ripped a strip out of him a mile wide about his "Horrible bullies that dared to call themselves officers!" Did they really have nothing better to do than "Unrightfully terrify and bellow at poor little girls trying to get home to their mothers?"  After what his boss said to him that trooper now lives in mortal fear of ever pulling me or one of my sisters over (there are four of us girls total), because he knows if he upsets us, his life will stink! ;) Still. . . a Trunk Monkey would have been nice! ;)

Phly: Does your Trunk Monkey have a brother or sister that I could adopt?

Stop crying, and write another post... ::Grabbing a tissue and handing it to you:: Reminds me of the commercial where the drill sargent is the counselor and starts yelling at the guy for being a sissy or something... Fun story, and fun to watch the video and see you racing at 25 miles over the speed limit. Come on... You know you were going faster then 5 MPH over the limit! LOL! Good evening, BTW! -Chris p.s. you post em like crazy! Everytime I go back to your blog, it's like a candy store, with new stuff every day! Whooot whooot!

Just figured out why the Trunk Monkey failed.  He didn't bring COFFEE with the donut!  Criminal offense!

ROFL! Too funny! I think you had an even better defense, The Telephone Mom! Never underestimate the power of a momma defending her child! :)

Dan - Thanks and Welcome! ;)

Chris - Good Morning! *Sniffles and grabs tissue* Ok, ok! I'll get back to work! ;) I really was only going like 5 over, the trooper was just new and trying to impress his boss with his numbers and "cracking down on highway crimes". Little did he know. . . ;) Candy store, yum!. . . I'm thinking Swedish fish and dark chocolate covered caramels with sea salt (Can we say, World Market addiction?). . . . No! Bad Phly! . . . *Trying to think water and power bars, and convince my self to let Jillian Michaels kick my bum*. . . . The price we pay for inspiration! *sigh* ;)

Barbara - I love the part when he taps the officer on the leg and the officer looks at the woman and says "Ma'am, is this your monkey?" and she just just shrugs and smiles. It cracks me up every time! ;)

Bill - And to make it worse it looked like a Wal-mart doughnut! Now if it had been a Krispy Kreme . . . ;) If he had offered Starbucks and a Krispy Kreme, then there would be no ride to the station for him!

Joni - Thanks! Mom's are amazing like that, especially mine! I think that the Highway Patrol is probably still scared to death of her. ;)

Phly....The video of the trunk monkey made me bust out laughing!  We all probably need one from time to time.

I do not find your disrespect for the law and law enforcement funny at all.
