I had originally shared this little snippet with my dear bud, Cin.... but then I thought 'You know....this is too funny not to share.'
This story here is about Homeland Security at its' finest.
My nephew, Cody, is learning how to drive. He has his permit, so my BIL is letting him drive here and there, etc. Well, they had to go on base for something (BIL works on the Air Force base), so every car pulls up to the guard gate, shows their ID and is waved along. When it's Cody's turn, he pulls up slowly, rolls the window down, the guard steps forward, and then.......Cody slams the gas instead of the brake. The car lurches forward, the guards all rush forward, hands on their guns......Cody sticks his head out the window to look back.....while the guard is giving him a dirty look, and motions him to back up. He backs up, looks at her, and says "My Bad."
She looks at him, while my BIL is frantically trying to say "He's a student driver! He's got a permit! He........" The guard looks at Cody and says "Okay, can I have all the IDs of everyone in the vehicle?"
ROFLMAO - it's hilarious, but moreso because it didn't happen to me.
