Things Not To Say To A Police Officer

I have the utmost respect for the men in blue. They keep us safe, help us when we're in trouble and tend to keep most of us honest most of the time. Still, for many of us there is a little bit of fear involved. I mean, bucko, the person has a gun, a big stick, handcuffs, and maybe some pepper spray or a taser. This is no one to trifle with, bucko. Yet you never know. You may just get one to smile or get yourself a quick trip to the pokey with one of these:

  • Is that your nightstick, or are you just happy to see me?
  • Wow, those cruisers must be really fast for you to catch me. I must have been going about 130.
  • Really, officer, there is nothing of interest hidden in the upholstery of my car.
  • That's a really nice gun. Wanna see mine? (Then reach for it really fast.)
  • I'll bet I can take you.
  • You guys all take bribes, right? How much?
  • You drive like my grandma.
  • Nice uniform. Says, "Village People" to me.
  • I was just going with the flow of traffic ... across the median like that.
  • I don't have breath on my beer, ossiffer.
  • How about I just buy two hundred tickets to the Policeman's Ball? You can mail them to me.
  • Listen, I'm really good friends with the President of the United States, so why don't we just forget about this whole thing, okay?
  • Smell? Oh, um, there was a piece of rope caught fire inside the car, that's all.
  • Those beer bottles? They were open when I bought them.
  • I can get out of those stupid handcuffs faster than you can say, 'Houdini.'
  • Nice haircut. You look like Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise.
  • What are you, deaf? I said I was not speeding.
  • Nice boots. Do they come in mens?
  • And you don't have to worry, I have nothing hidden in any of my orifices.

The police officer you are talking about seems much more better in comparision to some other. Yes your point is correct in all respects, to lawers, auditors and others. Do not talk more than needed!

Did you ever try any of those yourself in real life? Would love to know the response! Great hub (again!).

Brought me back to my first ticket!  I experienced a horrible first date with the man who became my husband.  I wasn't paying attention to my speed and was pulled over by a female officer. 

She was not attractive.  Sorry, but she had this aura surrounding her- like PigPen, as some women do. She was not confident regarding her male appeal and she was confronted with a cute (hey, I was all of 25), redhead seeking empathy.

The first thing out of my mouth was something like, "I just had the absolute WORST date ever.  Can you believe the guy tried to kiss me on a vertical street after making me leave the Al Jarreau concert at Red Rocks during the encore???  I was so looking forward to this date- I've had a crush on him for two years, can you believe it?" 

The officer took one step backward and proceeded to write the biggest fine possible and handed it to me with a flourish and a very sarcastic remark about blond bimbos.  I wasn't even blond.

Tom I see an amazon ad for a police badge and kids handcuffs. Do you think I could buy the badge and fool a police officer into thinking that I'm working undercover ?


Whikat 7 years ago

You got me all excited at first with, " the person has a gun, a big stick, handcuffs" I thought this was going to be a sexy hub. Oh well, I guess I will settle for funny. :-)

Glad to bring a chuckle, AIDY!

I think that would work, Someone!

Sorry to disappoint, Whikat, although female police officers are appealing are they not?

Hmm, Sorry to disappoint Tom, I don't think a female police officer with a "big stick" would appeal to me. I have to admit that I am grateful that they are on the force. I have personally never got a ticket when pulled over by a female officer. :-)


Am I dead, yet? 7 years ago

XD ROFL @Whikat!

"the person has a gun, a big stick, handcuffs" I thought this was going to be a sexy hub. Oh well, I guess I will settle for funny. :-) amd

ROFL :'D you all are going to make me pee myself...oops, too late :'(

lol, Tom...I should NOT post before coffee....

I meant to say that I accidentally posted the comment with Tom's (Cornett) hub ID instead of my own, hahaha

Shouldn't have two hub pages open at once, but I like to read his hubtivity page--it has more action than mine does...:)

Enjoy, Mr. Smiley! However you might consider having your attorney's cell phone number tatooed on your arm just in case if you feel like actually using any of these.
