It was a dark evening and the small airport hangar was deserted. All of a sudden the sound of a roaring motor cut through the silence of the night and an SUV flew through the side of the airport hangar hitting and damaging four different compact planes. The driver knew it was bad and immediately got out of the vehicle and fled into the night.

The next morning, the owner of the airport hangar came to work for the surprise of his life. The pure devastation of the SUV sized hole in his hangar and the damage done to the four planes was astounding. More astounding was the empty and demolished SUV slammed underneath a plane with its airbags deployed and blood spattering the driver’s airbag. The owner immediately called the police to file a report.

Mr. Pinocchio was contacted that same day and informed by law enforcement that his vehicle was involved in a hit and run of epic proportions and requested to know just what in the world happened. Mr. Pinocchio was at a loss and advised that when he woke up this morning, he came out and his vehicle was gone, so somebody must have stolen it and then been involved in an accident. He them reported the loss to his insurance company.

The adjuster handling the claim advised all parties, Mr. Pinocchio, the hangar owner, and all of the owners of each of the damaged planes, that she could not issue any payment pending a full investigation of what occurred.  She immediately contacted the police department and the police advised that as part of their investigation they would test the DNA left by the blood on the airbag to see if it matched Mr. Pinocchio’s DNA or any of his family members. It seems strange to the police that Mr. Pinocchio’s said his vehicle was stolen, but he never filed a theft report with them.

Several months passed with the property owners becoming more and more agitated, when finally the day came that the investigating officers contacted the adjuster and informed her that the DNA did in fact belong to Mr. Pinocchio’s son. Mr. Pinocchio’s son, however, was an excluded driver on Mr. Pinocchio’s insurance policy, so the adjuster had no choice but to deny the claim for all damages and direct the property owners to Mr. Pinocchio, and his son, to cover their damages out of his pocket.

The moral of this story: don’t lie to the police, and hide your keys from your kids!
