Pay the Fine

A New Yorker was forced to take a day off work to appear for a minor traffic summons. He grew increasingly restless as he waited hour after hour for his case to be heard.

When his name was finally called late in the afternoon, he stood before the judge, only to hear that court would be adjourned and he would have to return the next day.

“What for?!” he snapped at the judge.

His Honor, equally irked by a tedious day and  sharp query, roared: “Twenty dollars contempt of court! That’s why!”

Then, noticing the man checking his wallet, the judge relented: “That’s all right. You don’t have to pay now.”

The man replied, “I know. I’m just seeing if I have enough for two more words.”
