The Commuter’s Computer
Rochel’s new office computer system was down as much as it was working so she had to stay late one evening to catch up on the work that had accumulated. On her way home, a police officer stopped her for speeding.
"What a perfect end to an awful day!" Rochel exclaimed. "Our computer is up, then down -- up, then down. I stay late to catch up, and now this! God must have it in for me!"
The officer was unaffected by Rochel’s griping, and he went to his car to prepare a citation. After what seemed an eternity, he returned with her license and registration. As he handed them to her, he smiled and said, "Our computer is down."
