One would think after my soapbox speech about the importance of having your CURRENT proof of motor vehicle insurance on you some months back, that I would be near ’bout obsessive about it, right?
I have been driving for 23 years. I have only been pulled over three times in my entire driving career (never for speeding, mind you). Today was the time I was thrice pulled over and it was for a brake light being out. Ok…fine. Got a warning.
I think the Po’-leece-man, young and cute as he was, is perhaps kin to Barney Fife. Being called “Ma’m” is something…I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to it (unless it’s partly in jest or something) but when he said “Do not driiiiiiive off far any ray-zun”….like I was gonna? I was a tad insulted. I guess they have a problem with peoples doing that sorta thing.
My other favorite part of the whole experience was when Doogie Fife said this to me…he came back to the car and I was trying to find the current insurance card…he said “M’am..if you could just pay attention to me for just a minute.” HA. Ol’ Doog’ picked up on what’s up with your Sista, didn’t he? I guess I underestimated the Po’leeeceman. Do they train them in the Academy to spot hard-core drug dealers, child molesters AND those with ADD?
I hand him my insurance card…all proud and stuff and Barney, Jr. points out that the damn thing expired March 21, 2008. So, I have the HT call her father and he says “I thought I put it in there.” If it was there, I didn’t find it.
I still got off with a Warning. Have to send them a copy of said insurance card. Still aggravated me.
Oh…and I’m watching that movie Juno? I’m not even halfway through it and dadgum, I love this movie. My favorite line so far, courtesy Rainn Wilson/Dwight Shrute:
