11. Never Ever…Promise
“My sister got t-boned by a car, causing a concussion when I was younger. Long story short, we were in court with the judge, who asked the driver if he had ever sped before.
‘No, your honor, I never speed,’ was his reply.
The judge asked him a couple more times if he was sure that he never sped. Ever? The driver was adamant that he never sped and never had before.
A few minutes later, my sister’s lawyer gave the judge some paperwork. She read it, and said to the driver, ‘It seems that you have some past driving violations. Can you tell me what they are for?’
The driver had to pay medical bills for my sister.”
