A Police Officer stops a driver for running a red light. The guy
is a real jerk and comes running back to the officer demanding
to know why he is being harassed by The Gestapo! The
officer calmly tells him of the red light violation. The "Motorist"
instantly goes on a tirade, questioning the officer's ancestry, sexual
orientation, etc., in rather explicit terms. The tirade goes on
without the officer saying a word.
When he completes the writing of the ticket, he puts an "AH" in the
lower right corner of the narrative portion of the ticket. He then
hands it to the "Violator" for his signature. The guy signs the ticket
angrily, and when presented with his copy--points to the "AH" and demands to
know what it stands for.
The Police Officer says, "That's so when we go to court, I'll remember
that you're an A$$hole!"
Two months later, they're in court. The "Violator" has such a bad
driving record he is about to lose his license and has hired a lawyer to
represent him. On the stand, the officer testifies to seeing the man
run the red light. Under cross-examination, the defense attorney asks;
"Officer, is this a reasonable facsimile of the ticket you issued my
The Officer responds, "Yes sir, that is the defendants copy, his
signature and mine, Same number at the top.
ATTORNEY: "Officer is there any particular marking or notation on this
ticket you don't normally make?"
Officer: "Yes sir, in the lower right corner of the narrative there is
an "AH" underlined."
ATTORNEY: "What does the "AH" stand for, officer?"
Officer: "Aggressive and Hostile, Sir."
ATTORNEY: "Aggressive and Hostile?"
Officer: "Yes Sir."
ATTORNEY: "Officer, are you sure it doesn't stand for a$$hole?"
Officer: "Well Sir, you know your client better than I do!"
