Nighttime Encounter with the Police
My friend and I used to walk on a path along the river every night after work. During the winter, it was already dark when we would walk.
One night as we were walking back toward our cars, we saw a car pull into the parking lot with no headlights on. The car stopped near our cars. A man got out and started looking into our cars with a flashlight.
As I looked closer, I could tell that it was a police car. The police officer looked up at the walking path and saw us standing there. Without saying a word, he got back into his car and left.
Perhaps he thought he was going to bust some criminals, but it was just two friends on an evening walk.
