NBR-I got outta a ticket!

Neener neener neener!  While on our regular "car ride nap" this afternoon, I got caught in the local speed trap.  And I KNOW that stretch of road is bad for cops.  Stupid, stupid BB!

Officer lady:  "Any idea how fast you were going?"

Me: "Um.. the speed limit is 30, right?  So why is it 45 on the way INTO town but 30 as you're leaving town?  It's the same stretch of road."

Officer:  "Yeah, but you were going 43 on the way out and you didn't even slow down when you saw me."

Me:  I was just so happy my kid finally fell asleep.  Please, whatever you do, don't wake him up."

Officer:  <laughing at me> Okay, just a warning this time, mom!

Sometimes it pays to be amusing.


Growing up way too fast!

  • Oh, you're good!! I try not to speed, especially around home. DH, SIL and my dad and brother know a lot of the cops, I'd be in so much trouble!! I doubt humour would help, but I'd try!

    But I've used a crying baby to get waived through customs faster.

    ETA: Reminds me of the two cops sketches that Gabriel Iglasias does, omg, I died!


  • Woo Hoo! I'm calling you next time they snap my picture running a red light; maybe you can write my not-guilty letter.
  • Ha ha, good one!
