Subject: A-dooring Priest
From: Lin, Charlotte

A truck driver used to amuse himself by running over lawyers he would see walking down the side of the road. Every time he would see a lawyer, he would swerve his truck in order to hit him, and there would be a satisfyingly loud "THUMP". He would then swerve back onto the road, a broad grin upon his face.

One day, however, as he was driving along, he noticed a priest hitchhiking. He thought he would do a good turn and stopped the truck next to the priest. "Where are you going Father," he asked the priest. "I'm going to the church five miles down the road," replied the priest. "No problem Father! I'll give you a lift! Climb in the truck," said the driver.

The happy priest climbed into the truck and they continued on down the road.

Suddenly, the truck driver saw a lawyer walking down the road and instinctively started to swerve to hit him. But then he remembered here was a priest in his truck, so at the last minute he swerved back onto the road, narrowly missing the lawyer. Even though he was certain he missed the lawyer, however, he still heard the loud "THUMP". Not understanding where this noise came from, he glanced in his mirror, but didn't see anything.

Feeling contrite, he turned to the priest and said, "I'm sorry Father, I almost hit that lawyer."

"That's okay my son, " replied the priest, "I got him with the door."
