A  municipality officer stopped at corps fields in Texas , and talked with an old farmer. He told the farmer, “I  need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown  drugs.”  The farmer said, “Okay  , but don’t go in that field over there…..”, as he pointed  out the location.

 The municipality officer  verbally exploded saying, ” Mister, I have the authority of  the Federal Government with me !” Reaching into his rear pants  pocket, he removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the  farmer.  “See this badge?!  This  badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish. on any land  !!  No questions asked or  answers given!!  Have I made myself clear……do you  understand ?!!”

 The farmer  nodded politely, apologized, and went about his  chores.

 A short time later, the old farmer heard  loud screams, looked up, and saw the municipality officer running for his  life, being chased by the farmer’s BIG BULL. With every step the bull was gaining  ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he’d sure enough  get gored before he reached safety.  The officer was clearly  terrified.  The farmer threw down his  tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of his  lungs…..

“Your badge, show  him your BADGE !!!

Moral:

1-     Don’t show arrogance while using your authority. Use it with logic and common sense.

2-    Let the other person speak if he wants to say something. It clarifies doubts confusions.
