The traffic ticket.

A New Yorker was forced to take a day off from work to

appear for a minor traffic summons.

He grew increasingly restless as he waited hour after endless hour for his case to be heard.

When his name was called late in the afternoon, he stood before the judge, only to hear that court would be adjourned for the rest of the afternoon and he would have to return the next day.

WHAT FOR?!?!? he snapped at the judge.

The Judge, equally irked by a tedious day and sharp query, roared out loud: Twenty dollars contempt of court! Thats why!

Then, noticing the man checking his wallet, the judge relented:

Thats all right. You dont have to pay now.

The guy replied…

I know – Im just seeing if I have enough for 2 more words!
