The other day I was sitting in Starbucks at lunchtime, not too far from the spot where people wait to pick up their drinks. There was a couple standing there, and the way they were standing/speaking, I could hear his side of the conversation clearly, but hers was like the teachers in Charlie Brown specials -- wah wah wah. So anyhow, this is what I heard:

man: How'd everything go?
woman: Fine, wah wah wah wah
man: You picked up the car?
woman: wah wah wah wah
man: No sign of the police?
woman: wah wah wah wah

Maybe it's just me, but I can't figure out how a conversation featuring the question "no sign of the police?" could possibly be discussing something completely legit and above-board.

One possibility:

I think it's still true that police are supposed to file a report for any traffic accident more than a bumper dent. However, this is way low on their set of priorities when anything else has been going on, like more serious accidents or fires or major crimes. So I could see someone asking if the police had shown up or not -- because I've seen situations where the cops are all busy, the people in the crash wait half an hour and decide to just exchange info and leave, even if there's significant damage to one or the other car.
