I Got A Ticket, But Not For SpeedingJust when you're out of stories to post, life comes up and bites you on the butt and you have a new story! On my way to work this morning, I got a ticket for, "Blocking Traffic". I was just trying to turn left, and there were a lot of cars zipping by. I waited and waited for the zipping to stop, then I turned. When I looked in the mirror, it wasn't Christmas lights I saw on the car behind me.
The officer was very nice and he explained to me that I can't sit in the middle of the intersection. I'm not sure where he wanted me to put my 2000 pounds of Detroit's finest ... isn't it suppose to be on the street? These things don't hover, do they? I've never seen that option.
When I was trying to turn, I was honked at a couple of times, by I didn't get any "middle finger salutes", and no one rolled down their window and yelled "Learn How To Drive (Missy!)", so I figured I wasn't doing anything that bad.
The officer suggested I stay off of busy roads during rush hour. Isn't that an insult to my driving? Don't you think? How rude!
Maybe I'll give the ticket to my mom and dad as a stocking stuffer. Maybe they'll pay it. (ha ha).
