Another Speeding Ticket

Damn!  I got another ticket tonight and to make matters worse than just the guilty  nervous feeling you get when the bright lights shine into your eyes and you start to see color everywhere is, being 5 mins from home after a two hour drive.  But, even worse than that, is getting pulled over with your dad as the passenger sitting next to you.  

Now normally when I get pulled over I try everything to get out of it!  I have managed to talk my way out of 4 or 5 tickets and one cop was a woman.  I have cried, flirted,  twirled my hair and acted cute.  Hell one time, I just went on and on and on about what I was going through, until the cop was basically pushing my license back in my face and begging me to go.   So, if I didn’t have my dad in the car the event would have gone down like this.  

I would have pulled over, licked my lips, fluffed my hair, pulled down my shirt in a matter of a minute.  Then I would have leaned a little bit in towards the window so the cop could get just enough of a peak of my breasts,  to make him a bit silly in the head.  (Normally I am above this kind of sexual flirtation just to get something.  But when it comes to getting my ass out of trouble….  I am going to pull out all the tools in my bag, or my shirt for that matter)  Then I would have told him my sob story of my long drive and “it’s so late and I am just trying to get home to my warm bed.” Or “I’m so sorry officer but I have been on the road for so long and I need to pee so bad…” (Though the pee argument didn’t work the time I tried it before, I would still try it again.)

But, because my dad was in the car my demeanor stayed the same, and the incident went something like this,

“Evening officer what’s the problem?”

Cute Cop – “Well the fact that you were going 72 in a 65 mph zone for one.”

(Here’s where I would normally look startled and bat my eyelashes)

“Really?” I respond shocked

(My dad let’s out a snort, as he, I am sure was responding to my out and out lie.  Since he had just heard me say, “Shit!  I’m getting pulled over!  Shit!  I was speeding!”  as I was pulling over)

Kind of cute Cop – “Yes, You were, can I have your license and registration please?”

I start to pull out all the necessary documents and hand them to him.

” Was I really going that fast?  I was going the same speed as the car in front of me…”

Persistent not working with me,  Cop – “Ms. at first you were going 72 and then I clocked you at 78”. 

I ask “Are you sure your Radar Gun is Calibrated correctly?”

Not so fun cop- “I calibrate it every morning and send it in every three years for testing and maintenance” he says, seeming pleased with his speech. “Give me five minutes and I will give your speeding violation.”

“Do you have too?” I reply very sweetly

(I was trying right?  Then my dad blows the whole thing and starts cracking up.)

 The not so cute cop says, “yes”  smiles and walks away.

“DAD!!! Thanks a lot! ”
