An old man sat at a red light on his moped. A burly biker rolled to a stop beside him on his huge chopper. The old man was impressed with the large, shiny bike and leaned over to look at it closer. He told the biker how nice it looked and that he imagined it must really be a fast one. About that time the light turned green and the biker decided to show the old fellow just how fast it was.
He rolled back hard on the throttle and popped the clutch, roaring off in a cloud of tire smoke and noise.
A block or so away the biker stopped and chuckled to himself about leaving the old guy and his moped behind in a cloud of dust and smoke, as he glances in his mirror behind him. To his amazement there was something come up toward; it was coming really fast too! It was the old man on the moped and he flew right by the biker, completely out of sight. As he sat there wondering about what he had seen that same dot appeared ahead of him. It was the moped screaming toward then by him and off out of sight again.
A few more seconds and the old man zoomed back into sight, a little slower now, and finally squealed to a stop beside the biker. Totally amazed by what had just happened the biker asked the old man how he could possibly do that on a moped. The old man replied that he had gotten his suspenders caught on the biker’s handlebars. And would he please let him untangle them before he sped off again?
The moral to today’s lighter side message (which isn’t light in and of itself): Be careful what you get caught up in.
