Texas Deputy vs. California Lawyer
A California lawyer ran a stop sign in Texas and got pulled over by a sheriff’s deputy. He thought that he was smarter than the deputy because he was a lawyer from California, and was certain that he had a better education then any cop from Houston. He decided to prove this to himself and have some fun at the deputy’s expense.

Deputy: “License and registration, please.”
Lawyer: “What for?”
Deputy: “You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign.”
Lawyer: “I slowed down, and no one was coming.”
Deputy: “You still didn’t come to a complete stop. License and registration, please.”
Lawyer: “What’s the difference?”
Deputy: “The difference is, you have to come to a complete stop, that’s the law. License and registration, please!”
Lawyer: “If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I’ll give you my license and registration, and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket.”
Deputy: “Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir.”

At this point, the deputy took out his nightstick and started beating the tar out of the lawyer and said, “Do you want me to stop or just slow down?”
