SWEET TEA

To set the record straight


In reference to yesterday's post about
said Blogger's "crime spree", please let it be noted
that I am now a citizen in good-standing;
"Yes, Virginia, money can buy that too".

Ticket:  $118.00 + $5.90 = $123.90
5% is added to the ticket unless you pay in hard cash.
(this is a little surprise they don't tell you
until you arrive at the payment window)
Tag Renewal/Registration  $73.74
Car Inspection Fee
   $10.00
Grand Total:  $207.64                
                 PLUS

3 hours of my life which I will never see again.

Let me state the obvious,
"Don't do the crime unless
you're prepared to do the time
(and pay the money)."      


and to never blog about this again.
Ever.

Buy a yearly calendar and put all those kind of things on it! A lot cheaper.

This is funny stuff...we are sorry to have had a very expensive chuckle over it too. Lesson learned and move on but STILL the state failed to send you a reminder as they are suppose to do and no one charged them anything...ok that is it we won't say any more either.

The end.

Now move on to better, more exciting (and less expensive!) chapters! :)

Oh my goodness...bless your heart! If you are anything like me, just the process of getting pulled over by the police is enough to send me over the edge. Hoping it doesn't come in threes!!

I once had someone say to me "If your problems can be fixed with money they're not real problems." Mostly I agree. But sometimes they are an aggervation for sure.

I once stopped for a school bus. It pulled back onto the road and I pulled up beside it. As I was driving by it flipped out the stop sign and I relized that by the time I would stop, I would be in front of the the bus, so I kept going, from a dead stop.

The next day, as my girls and I sat at my kitchen island making Christmas decorations there was a State trooper knocking at my door. The bus driver had gotten my license number. I invited him in to the Christmas counter where he proceeded to igmore my story and was writing me a ticket. Terry's brother is a State Trooper as well, so when he got home, the car in the driveway, Terry thought his brother was in the house. The Officer was not swayed by that either. So I got a ticket for Wreckless Driving - while driving under 5 miles an hour - and the ticket was #150.00. So.... no, I'm not over it! I hate busses.

You always make me smile. Here is a funny I should have posted, When you dad asks you to mow the lawn, you complain and don't listen. Your dad says "Don't you come running to me if that lawn mower cuts your legs off!" That is just plain silly!
You don't want me to get started about the govt. and their demands on us! Argh....
The GOod Lord already told me "get some rest Anne and B E H A V E!" Darn it Lord, I had such plans....Hugs Anne

I'm sorry I laugh... I shouldn't be laughing.. after all, this isn't a joyous occasion for you. But I love the way you made lemonade out of this lemon.. :-)
Now behave yourself!

Oh oh! I got one of those pesky little tickets, too! The day I got the ticket and I went to get my tag, and when I went to court, I took my receipt with me. Judge took a look at my receipt and said "Case dismissed." I was so relieved.

Hmmm. Does it sound like I'm rubbing that in? ㋛ I hope not.


Here's a link to my story of court that day: http://www.amusingmargaret.com/2011/06/what-day-it-was.html
If you decide to read it, you may realize that you did the best thing by just paying the ticket! lol

PS...sorry about all that inconvenience and money...
