An man is waiting for the bus when he curiously asks someone for the time. Maybe it was his stutter or his appearance, but the man got no reply.
Crouched low, the man asked,
"E-e-excuse m-me, w-w-what t-time is it?"
The other man, however, didn't reply, causing the stuttering man to ask his question again and this time get a bit louder.
"E-excuse m-m-me, c-can y-you t-t-tell me w-what t-time it is?" he said.
Once again, the other man didn't reply nor acknowledge that he heard him. Thinking the man had chosen to ignore him, the stuttering man angrily walked away.
Curiously, a third man who had keenly observed the whole exchange was a bit concerned, so he walked close to the silent man and asked:
"Why didn't you just answer the man's question?"
The silent man said,
"Th-there w-w-would have b-been a f-fight."
It was the day for the accused driver's trial. There, the judge curiously asked for the reason he killed the innocent people. Forlorn, the bus driver quietly answered:
"I didn't meen to! It was by mistake!"
"How did it happen?" the judge further questioned.
In reply to the Judge's question, the driver said:
"Well, I was driving to a bus station, but suddenly, on the road, I saw a cow!
I swerved in to the woods and hit a tree! I managed to escape, but all the other people just didn't make in time... the bus exploded, and all the people died with it…"
"Why did you not just run over the cow?" the judge further asked.
"I tried! But the cow ran into the woods!" the driver said, barely able to hold back his tears.
