Couple of years ago I was traveling for a living and had driven to another state to do a client site visit. I was on my way back when I got pulled over by the police. I did my damnedest to get out of the ticket, but as luck would have it I managed to be pulled over by the only cop in history to ever write his mother a speeding ticket!! Anyway, he comes up to the car and informs me that I was speeding. (Yeah, dude, I was driving the car...I KNOW I was speeding... the more important question is .... Do YOU know how much I was speeding and how much is this going to cost me??) After realizing that I am not going to be getting out of this ticket the old fashioned way ~ some cops do not take well to flirting. Go figure. I thought I could maybe try to reason my way out. (I have watched every Law & Order episode ever made and by pure TV-osmosis learning have a sharp legal mind.)
COP: Miss, we clocked you going 20 miles over the speed limit. (Whew! Cause I was actually doing more like 30 - 40. Who knew a Saturn could haul buns like that?!)
Me: Really? I didn't see you back there. Are you sure it was me?
COP: We clocked your car by aircraft radar.
Me: So where was the plane?
COP: (I swear he actually rolled his eyes when he said this) IN THE SKY!
Thank you and good night. Yep, I got that ticket and if he could have written me up for being blond while driving, I am sure he would have done it.
