55 flash fiction friday #75: renewal time


at the dmv
"The white signs are regulatory, the yellow signs are caution signs.

"'And the difference is?'

"The laws on the white signs are enforced by the police. The laws on the yellow signs are enforced by natural selection.

"She didn't get it. Went right over her head."

"You're kidding."

"Did I mention this was the examiner?"

 Graciously hosted by G-Man.

Note: This is pure fiction. I would never disparage the good people of the NC DMV except in fun. (Honest!)

Alternate Endings
Got an idea how this story ends? Or begins? Check out the "Alternate Endings Party Game"
This week we have a new player, who penned a new ending to an old(er) story. And it happened to be one of my favorites.

Speaking of signs, there is a sign on the chain link fence to the postal parking lot where they park all the mail trucks that says, "No trucks." Oy.

Mama Zen said...

As she illustrates the occasional failure of natural selection . . .

Peter Stone said...

Brilliant, loved the line about natural selection enforcing the cautionary signs. Sadly, the road toll reveals how many don't heed those signs :(

My 55 is We Stand There

I went 53MPH once in a 35MPH zone....I think it's called dyslexia.

Mine is "LOST IN THE TRANSLATION"

Have a great weekend! [and as always, scroll down a bit to find my 55]

Mojo said...

Damn spammers. Grr...

clean and crazy said...

great 55!! was that the medical examiner?

Enchanted Oak said...

Well, the final line went over my head, but that might be because I just woke up and haven't finished my coffee. But I loved the description of the difference between white and yellow signs. That much was hilarious.

Daryl said...

Love signs, especially those that are sort of oxymoronic .. like Shay's no trucks ..

chitowngreg said...

Laura said...

Natural selection huh? Yep, there's a reason we're referred to as the "Carolinas"....same DMV. ;)

Stan Ski said...

I think I had the same examiner for my first driving test.

Jingle said...

What a cool 55!
I am always rather careful with speed limits.
Have a great weekend!

LOL, I think it was just in the last few years I realized the yellow signs were just a suggestion. My son will be taking his test soon, hope he obeys the yellow ones too while the person is in with him.
