well, i was in the passing lane doing 75 instead of 65 (thats not really speedin if u ask me!). anyway, this cop car behind me followed for ten minutes then he turned his blinkers on and i'm like meh....! so we stop over at the shoulder and he steps out, snaps out his ticket book, knocks on my window - "so ma'am! where's the fire?" he says and i'm thinking THIS is going to take a while. so instead of the pleasantries i just tell him i was so late from picking up the kids from school and i'm so SOOOOOOOOOOO sorry! he gives me this 'look' and he's like 'oh thats not why i stopped you. i stopped you cuz u were driving in the passing lane!'
me: uhm...yes. thats what we do when we go fast.
him: nooooo, thats what u do when u want to PASS other cars in other lanes and then u move back to the middle lane.
him: now i wont cut u ticket this time but dont lemme catch u next time!
lol! i must've looked very dismal for him take pity on me
but it saved me $50 or so!
this one other time, i was standing in front of a hospital entrance cuz my husband had told me he'd be down in two seconds. i'd seen plenty cars stalling there before and no one ever told them off - the guards and cops wud just drive by so i took my chances. but guess what! the trouble magnet that i am, this cop appeared from nowhere and told me to drive off.
point to be noted here: i was 8 months preg. u DO NOT mess with such a woman! so i told him hubby is a doc, wud be down soon and i'm not parking, if somebody needs me to move i will. but he's like 'no ma'am, please move!'...and my baby kicked just then ...which i let out on the officer. i stared at him and told him i'm not moving, he can give me a ticket for that and i'll make a video of all the times i've seen long lines of cars standing idly by here and present it as evidence in the court!
guess what he did. HE LAUGHED! shook his head and said 'ten minutes max ma'am. THEN i give u a ticket and u can make ur video.' and left
it still makes me laugh.
