Its kind of long but definitely worth reading. Skip set up if your in a rush.
SET UP:About a year ago my mom was running late for a meeting. (CP time). After failing to find a parking spot she told me to take the car and go get some breakfast. I always drove and it really was no big deal.
But see what had, had happened was......
I was in Sanford county. For all my non-north Carolinians Sanford county is the COUNTRY. I know you probably think all of North Carolina is the country, but this is the COUNTRY COUNTRY.
So I go in get my breakfast, I eat, and then I completely forget where I dropped my mom off. I call my mom and she tries to tell me how to get back. For some reason I forget to look at the speedometer because I am so focused on getting to my mom.
Im coming down this hill and I see a cop sitting at the bottom of the hill like they normally do. I look at the speedometer and Im doing about 60 mph. Oh shit I hit the brakes trying to not make it all obvious I was going that fast. I past the cop Im like cool got away with it. Im driving along and I find where I dropped my mom off.
I look in the rear view mirror and I see that the cop right behind me without any sirens on, but lights blaring. He was smart not to put them on cause I would have just turned up a street, parked in a driveway, and turned off the car. Before he saw which way I went.
Its my first time being pulled over so Im more shocked then anything else. Officer Lee gets out his car walks to my window and says
Officer Lee: Why do you think I pulled you over?
Jo: umm ummm hummm can I use a life line? (I joke when I get nervous)
Officer Lee: I clocked you at 51 in a 35.
My mom calls I answer the phone.
Jo: YOU SEE THIS COP PULL ME OVER.
Later I laugh cause he was standing right there.
Mom: yeah I'm coming to you hold on.
Hang up the phone
Officer Lee: license and registration please
Jo: Yo no Obla les englais.
Officer Lee:(Something in spanish at a million mph)
Officer Lee: Okay license?
I hand him my learners permit. The one where an adult has to be in the car at all times. Also the one that expired about a month ago.
He goes and writes my first ticket. My mom gets in the car now. He comes back explains the ticket and all that bs. My mom tries to explain the situation.
How come when people get pulled over they start to act like harvard professors.
Mom: Yeah the velocity mixed with gravitational pull...... Down hill southern eastern winds...... the moons magnetic hold.......
Anyway I got a ticket for driving without a license and doing a 51 in the 35. It was only a fifty dollar ticket, but with court fees automatically added on it ended up being $171.
Have you ever been pulled over leave a comment or just tell me what you thought about my story.
