My first Ticket!~

Ok so there I am driving along my back road from my house, headed to a play that the oldest child and her mother are performing in. I am stopped at the stop sign when a cop turns down the street I'm stopped on.... I look in my rear view mirror to see if he noticed my tags are out... *gasp*... Yeah I know, not too smart of me....

So I see the cop hit his brakes and I decide to make a run for the convenience store... I knew if I got to private property that he couldn't write me a ticket.... so I'm tearing down the back road and looking back the whole time...

don't see him ... don't see him.... don't... shit here he comes... so I slow down to the speed limit cuz I know I'm not gonna make it to the store before he catches up to me... don't want a speeding ticket on top of everything else....

Yep, he turns his lights on... passes the car behind me.... and pulls me over.... right in the parking lot of the convenience store ....
Evidently I didn't pull up enough so he could get outta the street... so I hear this voice coming from his car.... "PULL UP PLEASE".... gawds... how embarrassing.... People pumping gas were all staring at me... No way was I gonna try my tears in front of all these folks....

Then, as if things couldn't get any worse.... The officer comes to my car and who is it?... This little kid named Dusty who is only a couple years older than my son.... *rolls eyes*.... He tells me that I didn't use my left turn signal when I was stopped at the stop sign.... For crying out loud!~~~ Who was I gonna signal to?... The cows in the field across the street?!~~~~

Well.. of course he wanted to see me license and insurance... Well, I've never been one to lie... so as I handed him my license, I just said... "I have no insurance that I know of"... Then I was informed that that was cause for automatic impounding of my car.... "NOOOOO!~~~ Dusty PULEEEEZE!".... So, he told me that he would run my license and if I've never been cited for that offense in the past then he would write a ticket and not impound.... *WHEW*.....

As he was about to step back to his car he notices my registration.... points to it and asks... "whats up with this?".... I tell him... "well... if I don't have insurance... I can't get tags for my car"..(duh!).... He shakes his head and goes to his car...

OK... So I am sitting there thinking to myself... Well.. I've never had a ticket in my life... so I suppose I'll keep my car outta impound.... and then he returns with 3 tickets for me... I"m whining.... "I can't pay for all those!"... He says... "don't worry... the judge will work with you and give you community service"... (wtf?!...no damn way am I picking up trash on the side of the road in a bright orange safety vest!)...

So, he tells me to take my car straight home... and I do... and the next day my employer and I took care of the insurance and got my tags.... Yesterday I went to court.... but thats a whole other blog.....

Yeah, but he could have given you a break. Hell, around here they would've cut me slack, and I'm nowhere near as cute as you! Joe

Reis, you got a HUGE break here. Your car should have been impounded. And they way that works out, bugs come in, but they don't get out. You should be dancing in the streets. You got the best you could possibly get out of this one!

yeah...ok.. I'll take Ron's "yeah what she said" as a ...oh..nevermind... he doesn't *do* flirts (although...he has gotten pretty good at it lately)...

but I think the stranger doesn't have a clue what I may or may not look tasty in...

Stranger, Hmmmmm how to respond. . . Well I'm gonna say I would like to be the friend you just haven't met yet. Thanks for recognizing me at all and I'll bet you look great in anything! However I was mostly impressed with your ability to put your story to paper and was complimenting not salivating, hope you realize that.
Sorry if I have offended you, but I meant quite the opposite. Jack.

Hello Reis. Just popping in to check you out and your blog out as well but both are very nice and wonderful to view anyway.

It is no fun ever to receive a ticket from any police or law enforcement officer period especially here in Michigan when they put on the safety belt enforcement zone that operates to catch those stupid motorist who do not where their seatbelts and when they get caught the fine is $65.00 and getting a ticket such as your or even a speeding ticket is very costly also.

3 tickets in 3 days sounds like you didn't learn any sort of lesson, Jack!~

No still haven't, they were seat belt tickets GRRRR at the start of the whole click it or ticket nonsense, my neighboring township with a bloated police force said YIPPEE more cash so with that they set up road blocks and hidden check points and had a whopping rain fall till the county put a stop to it. Back to my tickets, my father was seriously injured with his seat belt in a crash which later killed him. It took a number of years but the misery took hold and lasted till he couldn't fight any more. That painful memory has and always will be with me so you can imagine my protest to wearing a seat belt. I do now after three tickets because my little protest cost me a lot of time and money and got me nowhere. So thats the story of my three tickets in three days.

Yeppers... I most def agree with you on that fact, Jack... Granted, a seatbelt saves some lives if its worn during a car wreck.... But as you said.... sometimes they can kill....

A friend of mine only survived her car crash because she was NOT wearing her seatbelt... She was flung from the car and survived... but had she been buckled in.... theres no chance she would've survived.... This was obvious just by looking at what was left of the drivers side of the car...exactly where she would've been had she worn the seat belt....

I say if its your time to go... you will go... seatbelt or no seatbelt...
