A tourist climbed out of his car in downtown Washington, DC.
He saw a man standing near the curb, and asked, "Listen, I'm going to be only a couple of minutes.
Would you watch my car while I run into this store?" "What?" the man huffed.
"Do you realize that I am a member of the United States Senate?" "Well no," the tourist said, "I didn't realize that.
But listen, I'm really in a bind so I'm going to have to trust you anyway."
