Oops


A: Who is the most powerful person on the planet?

B: A policeman.

A: How so?

B: Because he can stop traffic with one hand.

Classic. And yet, for us, traffic policemen are just another part of the system that we have to bear, a corrupt system at that, and hence, probably part of the problem. And so, we barely pay attention to them.

So much so that *smack!* – this morning, one uncle, in a hurry to “make” the signal did not see the poor policeman standing in the middle of the road, in this really hot weather, directing the traffic.

Oops. It would seem a policeman’s power is dependent on the propensity of the drivers to obey the law as well as use their eyes and ears.
