Super Trooper...

Okay, I probably shouldn't be blogging about this...

...but I won't use any names.

So, it's no secret that I am the WORLD'S WORST driver.  It's not that I am a "bad" driver, it's that I get pulled over for traffic violations MORE THAN ANYONE YOU WILL EVER KNOW!

Seriously, I've had FIVE traffic violations in the past SIX months!

Several weeks ago I received a letter in the mail from the Department of Revenue stating that my license would be revoked if I provoke one more traffic violation.

As you can imagine, I've really been on my best behavior when it comes to milling around town...

...(or I haven't been caught).

Earlier this afternoon I was driving back to the office from a meeting when all of a sudden I see flashing lights in my rear view mirror...

Panic sets in...

...I quickly pull over on the side of the highway and  immediately start to cry!

As I'm watching in my rear view mirror I see the police officer step out of his vehicle and PERFECT! I know this guy!! 


I jump out of my car and begin running towards Officer "I'm-so-glad-I-know-you-and-I-hope-you-like-me!"

Me:  "OMGosh...thank GOODNESS it's YOU!"

Officer:  (laughing) "I should have known it was you...trouble"

Me:  "No, seriously...if I get one more ticket, my license will be taken away..."

Officer:  "I've got a quota I've got to meet"

Me:  "Please!!  I'm begging you!  I'll lose my job!"

Officer:  "Bets, you were driving 15 miles over the speed limit!"

Me: "I'm sorry!  I was talking on the phone so I wasn't really paying attention..."

Me: "WAIT!  That probably didn't help me..."

Officer: (shaking his head) "Turn around, get back into your car, STAY OFF YOUR PHONE, SLOW DOWN and I don't want to hear another word of this!"

Me:  "OMGosh...THANK YOU!!  I'll buy you something..."

Officer:  "That turns this into bribery...just leave."

Me:  "Right."




  1. It's great to have friends in high places.
    Now I have a second reason to add you to my prayer list!!!

  2. Honey you need to follow his advice. :) blessings, marlene

  3. I can relate. I lost count after 35 or more moving violations. It wasn't so much that I was a bad driver, I just covered a lot of miles and it upped my odds of getting a speeding ticket. Helpful hint; if you spread them out between enough states, the laws of reciprocating between states are on your side. Once upon a time, my monthly car insurance payment was more than my car payment.

    I'll behave if you will!
