some one told me the other day that their friend got stopped at an immigration check point. the officer walked up to the window and said papers. so the guy in the car said scissors i win. the cop didnt find it funny and he had to pull over and go through all that fun stuff.
idk how true the story is but i thought it was really funny
Last summer some friends and I were driving from Sierra Vista to Tombstone. We got stopped by the border patrol at a checkpoint. I am one of the whitest boys from Southern PA. I lowered all the windows of the car and presented the hispanic female agent with our military ID cards, figuring it would be a quick and painless experience...I was wrong. This was our exchange:
Border Patrol Agent: "Sir, are you from this country?"
Me: "You're joking, right?"
Border Patrol Agent: "No, Sir, I'm not. Are you here legally?"
Me: "Of course I am, I'm a Sergeant First Class and have been in the US Army for 19 years!"
Border Patrol Agent: "That means nothing, Sir. You could still be illegal and be in the military."
Me: "Well I can assure you that I'm originally from PA."
Border Patrol Agent: "I don't know what that is, Sir."
Now, maybe I'm just ASSuming, but I always thought that everyone knew what and where PA was.
Me: "Are you kidding me???? Are you really serious or are you just proof that we're hiring any imbecile to stand here now? Let me ask you, are YOU here legally?"
By this time, her supervisor came out, because I was irate and raised my voice....yeah, I know, asking her if she was here legally was a peckerhead thing to say, but my tolerance for stupidity is pretty low. I'm on Lexapro now and much better.
The Border Patrol supervisor told her to give us our military ID's back and he apologized. I never did see her again at that checkpoint.
