The young woman had just received her temporary driver's licence after taking the written test for the umpteenth time.
She was driving home on the Interstate when her can suddenly experienced total electrical failure. She managed to get pulled off to the side of the road but she was stuck. Nothing worked.
What's worse, its raining cats and dogs!
She gets into the back seat where there is more room and takes off everything. She puts her raincoat and shoes back on.
She then proceeds to stand just behind her car and fling open her coat as each car passes.
Naturally, it doesn't take long before there is a big wreck.
The Motorway Police officer who shows up sees what is happening and is furious.
"What do you mean exposing yourself like that!?" he demands. "Can't you see what was happening?"
In tears, she replies, "I'm sorry. I didn't know what else to do. Everything died on my car and the law says that if you pull off to the side of the road you have to put your flashers on, but they wouldn't work. I had to be the emergency flasher! Please don't take my driving licence away!"
