Opportunist

Today while walking in the rain, when I was 4 miles from my house, I realized I was supposed to take my car to be serviced hours ago. Immediately I raced home, got the car and pulled into the shop.

Me: I’m here to drop off my car.

Man: You were supposed to be here two hours ago.

Me: (ominous) I know, I got here as soon as I could.

Man: Well, you’re going to have to wait another week. Our technician waited for you and began working on another car which is going to take a while.

Me: (taking my car and driving to hell) You see, I was late because my father was just getting home from the hospital and I was waiting on hospice.

Man: I’m sorry to hear that. Let me go and talk to the technician and see.

Me: (wiping the rain on my face as if it were tears) I understand, if I have to come back, well… I’ll work it out. 

One minute later…

Man: We’ll get your loaner car for you in a moment.
