Goldilocks

It has been a rather odd few weeks as of late. I told you the story of getting pulled over for driving too slow. It is safe to say that I haven't heard the end of it since then, and truth be told Nor should I. Fast forward a few weeks.....

Officer: Do you know why I pulled you over?

Me: "I wasn't driving too slow was I?"

Officer: (enter combination weird/ ' Oh so you think you are a smartass' look here),,,,," Could I see your license?"

Me: "Sure."

Brain: "Don't you DARE volunteer your registration!"

Officer: "and your registration?"

Brain: shit

Me: "here you go"

Officer: "Mr. Donkey, do you know how fast you were going?"

Me: "(exhaling),,,,Just tell me I wasn't driving too slow."

Officer: "No sir, you were doing 72 in a 55."

Me: "phewwwwww!"

Officer: " You are happy about it? Is this a joke to you?"

Me: "Oh, no sir! It's just that I got pulled over for driving too slow not long ago. I have been catching hell for it ever since. If I did THAT again, I am sure my car would disown me and I may lose my man card."

Officer: "For driving too slow? (enter laugh here) Nice car by the way."

Brain: Sweet, we may just talk our way out of this.

Officer: "I will be right back."

Brain: Or not

Too slow,,,,,,too fast......Now I just have to figure out what speed is just right.

Yikes! You are a bit of a rebel, BD.

But you know what they say, third time lucky.. perhaps the next time you're pulled over, the officer will just compliment you on your hair or something.

;)

was he cute? maybe you should have winked or something.


opps, cancel that, thought i was talking to kiddo for a minute. ;-)


(btw, that thing on the dash with the numbers 5-120 and the little stick thingy that moves as the car moves? it's called a speedometer. if you're gonna get pulled over, you should at least have some idea of how fast you were going. that way you know how much to take off of the speed when you tell the judge how fast you were really going. after all, we all know math is such a strong suit in florida. ;-)

heather said...

oh, and i use the 10% rule. you can do 10% over the speed limit without getting harrassed. ( 30mph becomes 33, 55mph becomes 61 etc.)

Susan said...

I never wink at them, Heather.



....I just make sure my buttons pop open at the right moment. Winking is for amatures.

Roadchick said...

Maybe cruise control.

Just a thought.

SWF42 said...

Two words.

Cruise. Control.

But, then we'd miss your "I can't drive worth shit" stories. *lol*

"Now I just have to figure out what speed it just right."

You could try the one posted on those little black and white signs with letters "mph" underneath. Just a thought.

LOLOL

He's gonna be telling this story as well.

And yes--nothing like a well timed button popping along with a tear or two ;-)

Tera: I choose to believe it was a "pull over the unusual car with out of town plates not in the greatest neighborhood to see if we get lucky and find something" theory myself.

Alynda: I think that may scare me a bit.....I think

heather: I tried that, thus the ticket.

Susan: I did tell him by breasts were throbbing,,,,,it didn't help.

Roadchick: meet swf

Swf: meet roadchick

Hoodie: lol,,,,my favorite answer thus far

Turn: The amazing power of boobs.

LOL... too funny!

Chris said...

Too bad it wasn't the same cop! He might have given you an award;)

Anali said...

This is so funny! I had to check your profile and see if you were in Florida before I commented. About a month ago, a friend of mine in Miami was pulled over for driving too slowly! It must be a Florida thing!

Guys I've dated always seem to have trouble figuring out what's too fast and what's too slow. Have we met?
