Omg... It Was First and Only Time!!!

so in October, I got a ticket for not having a trolley ticket with me when I went on the trolley. But I had a month trolley pass, I just forgot it in my room. So the police man said that when I go to court in december, I can just show the judge the trolley pass.

So I went to court and I had to go with my mom, b/c I comitted this horrible felony when I was 17. I was oh so nervous and my heart was beating fast, but I remembered my therapist told me to do my relaxation excerises when I get nervous like that. It helped a lot. Sooo... my mom and I talked to the receptionist lady and I told her I would plead guilty with explanation. She said "you will have to speak up" That made me more nervous b/c I would have to explain myself in front of like 20 people to the judge about my trolley ticket and all. So I went in there and I was like the 2nd person up and oh gosh... I did it! I didn't freeze up or anything. I even spoke loud. Usually, I'm quiet like a mouse. So after I explained he said he would let me go with a warning. I was sooooooo happy and proud of myself. :D go me!!!

Agreed! What doesnt kill us makes us stronger - and gives us another entertaining story for the grandkids!

yeah, it was a very stupid reason to go to court. I think the police man that caught me was just trying to enforce laws, I guess. idk... whatever. It makes a good story to tell people, though. A funny experience... for experience project. :)

Go you! So brave! <br />

What a silly thing to have to go to court about, Im glad you only got a warning.
