One afternoon, a man left the office after work and drove down a highway to visit a nearby lake and relax for a couple of hours.
On his way to the lake, he saw a strange guy dressed from head to toe in red, who was standing on the side of the highway, gesturing for him to stop.
The man pulled over to the side of the highway, rolled down the window and said to the guy, “How can I help you?”
The guy replied, “I am the red jerk of the highway. Have you got something to eat?”
With a smile on his face, the man handed a sandwich to the guy in red and drove away.
Not even five minutes later, he came across another strange guy. This guy was dressed fully in yellow and similarly he was standing on the side of the highway and waving for him to stop.
A bit irritated now, the man pulled over and stopped, cranked down the window, and said, “What can I do for you?”
The strange looking guy replied, “I am the yellow jerk of the highway. Have you got something to drink?”
Hardly managing to smile this time, the man handed the guy a can of Coke, then floored the accelerator pedal and took off again.
In order to make it to the lakeside before sunset, he decideed that he needed to go faster and not to stop no matter what.
To his frustration, he saw another guy on the side of the road, this one dressed in blue and signaling for him to stop.
Reluctantly, the man decided to stop one last time. He rolled down his window and yellsed “Let me guess. You’re the blue jerk of the highway and just what the hell do you wanna have?”
The guy in blue replied, “Driver’s license and registration, please.”
