This one reads like a modern day Aesop’s Fable
Intelligence: Knowing that mushroom is poisonous
Wisdom: Knowing not to eat that mushroom
The definition of malicious compliance. Even asks him if he's sure. Love it!
Similar excuse did get me off of a speeding ticket. I told the state patrol I had new tires installed, which I did, and they were bigger then my old one. The dealership was unable to calibrate my speedometer the day I got them and I didn’t realize how much off it really was.
He explained the reason behind it, and to have a nice day.
I was also only doing 13 over. 68 in a 55.
Intelligence may not be a substitute for wisdom, but deception is a charisma check anyway
Isn't the speed limit on most of I-95 (around MIT) only 55mph? Lots of people go 75
My grandfather was a scientist he always used to tell a story about getting out of a speeding ticket by telling the cop that the faster that he got home the less time he spent on the road therefore making it safer. Apparently he was so convincing or entertaining the cop let him go. Not sure if it was just a tall tale. Here he is very accomplished guy. Proud to call him my grandfather Discovered the Calvin-Benson cycle for photosynthesis
