I Have a Good Story

Two years ago, in the middle of winter, I accidentally ran out of gas driving home. It was below zero outside, and I was several miles from any gas station. My car was parked on the shoulder of the highway with the emergency blinkers flashing. I'll never forget, seeing a police cruiser speed by. My eyesight is not great, but from memory, I could make out the slogan on the side of the car "to serve and protect". He didn't stop. I wondered to myself, "who do these public servants actually serve"?
