My Streak Has Ended

Jeff: So what’d you do for the last 5 hours?
Me: Oooh, I went to the doctor, he poked my eyeball and said I have a sinus infection so I got medicine.. went to my mom’s house… had pizza… played DS… got pulled over.. you know.
Jeff: ……… oy.

It was an unmarked cop car! And I swear I thought it was a 35 zone. Going 40 in a 35 is acceptable. However, 40 in a 25 is… well, not. They were looking for a stolen black car. I was driving a.. not stolen black car. So after some polite conversation (including a pop quiz on who the car belongs to), he handed me back my stuff (.. well, my license and Jeff’s registration) and told me to slow down. YAY NO TICKET!

But still. I have been tainted :(

CURSE YOU KARMIMI!!!!!!!1111!!eleventy-one.

    Pretty awesome that you got off with just a warning. It’s been about three years since I got a ticket, and I can just feel lurking around the corner.

    I’ve gotten pulled over twice in my life, neither time have I gotten a ticket. :) We rock.

    It’s been like 10 years since I got a speeding ticket… ::knocks on wood:: I hate being pulled over. I must have a guilty conscience about something, what I don’t know. Because I always feel like they’re going to look at me funny and then find a body in my trunk. “I swear officer, I have NO idea how that got there!” :innocent:

    LOL, that was funny. I’m guessing it wasn’t funny at that moment, but believe me it’s a good story, and you didn’t get a ticket.  :up:

    I got my first ticket last summer.

    Five years, one ticket.  I’d say that’s pretty damn good, eh?

    I have been pulled over probably 30 times in my life. I’ve only ever had 2 tickets.

    I haven’t been pulled over in about 3 years, though. Knock on wood.
