Lunch AND TICKET

As many do, I was having a pretty good day until I went to the bank. I went through the ATM. In order for me to reach the ATM from my car, I have to undo my seat belt to lean forward to reach the machine. So I go through the process of making my transaction, close the door and move so others behind me can get there. I turn the corner and make it to the Stop Sign. As I am in the process of putting my seat belt on, a motorcycle cop turns into the parking lot, sees what I am doing and yells, "SEAT BELT". I can hear him as my window is down. So I proceed to buckle up before I go again, I see him turn around, as I turn left and stop shortly for a red light. I look through my rear view mirror and see him right behind me with lights on. Well I was at intersection no where to go so I waited....and waited..and waited for the right turning signal to turn green. Thinking, "He can't possibly give me a ticket right."

The light turns green and I make my way to a parking lot with Motorcycle Cop right behind me. I stop as he stops. I hear him command, "Get out of the car!" I thought, "Sorry Buddy, ain't doing no such thing." He cautiously walks to my window and says, "License, insurance and registration." I hand them to him. I say, "You're giving me a ticket?!" He said, "Yes ma'am. Safety violation." I stammered, "But you saw me putting it on before I got onto the street." He informs me, "Ma'am, you're suppose to put it on before you roll." I thought,"...well you know what I thought, prefer not to write it. I calmly on the exterior  but inside I'm jittery and wait until he fills the ticket out.

He hands me the ticket and says, You have until the 22nd of next month to pay it." I asked, "How much is it?." He said, "I don't know. You have to call the number on the back. Have a nice day." Like they have no idea how much it costs.

Are you kidding me? I just respond, "Thank you, you too." but actually thought, "Yea, right Ass wipe." As I left I realized its in the end of the month and I guess he hasn't met his quota. I wonder what my chances are that I would win if I fought it. Probably slim.

 I made my way to HOT FOOD EXPRESS to meet Kathy! Great lunch and company! Thanks again Kathy. The food was so good. It's one of those hole in the wall sorta restaurants. I definitely recommend.

Moving on with my little life until I go pay the ticket.."SIGH"
