DP Daily prompts: Second–Hand stories
what’s the best story someone else has recently told you(in person, preferably)? Share it with us, and feel free to embellish– that’s how good stories become great, after all.
This was a story told by a friend of ours who went to Miami, Florida, United States to spend a month in that warm place and to get relief from the cold snowy winter in Newfoundland.
He rented a car to move around and see all the places in there. He wanted to impress us he had gone to Florida, since he was an invited guest in our house we let him tell us about his fabulous vacation.
Unlucky for him he had some minor accidents while driving around in Miami, Florida,which is what we were led to believe. He was stopped by traffic police on more than one occasion.
To impress the traffic cop he said, “people from my community love Florida, they come in groups every year.”
The cop listened to him and remarked,”Well if they drive like you tell them to stay home and not bother coming to Miami, we don’t want to deal with the likes of you, one is enough.”
