PP Ray’s Ramblings:
A woman couldn’t find her car so called the police to report the car was stolen then called her husband with the bad news. He snickered and reminded her that he dropped her off at work that morning so she requested he come and pick her up and he replied with “I will as soon as I can convince the police to let me go as I was arrested for stealing your car”.
