Years ago I was in traffic court for a U turn and expired license. One of the people there was a young man that really had a bad attitude. You could tell just by the way he walked up to the bench. He had been ticketed for going WAY over the speed limit in a school zone. He proceeds to get in an argument with the judge, and ends up getting taken out by the bailiff. Who gets called next........me of coarse. Years later I was again in traffic court for a speeding ticket that I got right in front of my sisters house. Again the broken English speaking guy really upsets the judge. He is actually red in the face, I thought he was going to have a stroke. Who gets called next........you got it, ME. Got stopped again recently. I was looking at some really old stock certificates a family member had just given me and missed my arrow to make a left turn. There was two policeman waiting at the intersection and I got pulled over. I was about 500' away from my street. He said he was going to write me for full time and attention. I just shook my head. He saw my gesture and decided to write me for no seatbelt. I waived the ticket for $125. My son and his friend, on leave from Navy went drinking on the main drag in the next town (against my advice). Of course they got stopped. The officer that pulled them over was an old shooting buddy and had recognized my son, who was the passenger. He had them park their car and gave them a ride to my sons house. I explained to them that was a "one time only" pass. My wife got pulled over in a school zone speeding. This was in the same city her business was in and she was making a delivery. She got a pass. She also gets pulled over for rolling stop sign (different city). She called the city to find out how much it was to waive. She mentioned this was her very first ticket (she was 50 something). They checked and told her to "just mail it in" and excused her. In the past I have had tickets taken care of for my children and a close friend. I have never asked for myself and just taken my lumps. Why is it I'm always on the short end of the stick??? ;-/ I FEEL LIKE SUCH A SCOFFLAW.
