I got a speeding ticket this morning
So I'm driving along 62 West on the way to work (at 10:00) and every idiot and their brother is on the road, and they are driving to slow and in my way, and spraying my freshly washed car with icky and I'm late for work and I'm sick and so I'm in a bad mood. I exit and get onto 100 South and it's an Open Road! So I ease into the left lane and take her up to 80mph. Then I realize how fast I'm going, and drop it back to about 65mph or so. One of those things where I actually in my mind envisioned getting pulled over and explaining to the cop that I just lost my mind for a minute but that was because of the open road and all. And then of course I get pulled over, and of course I tell him that whole story, and he said he got me going 75. I go, "well, actually I was going 80!" Kind of like to explain that it was my conscience that made me slow down, not him. Because he was unmarked and stuff. Anyways, even though I repeated to myself "let me off. let me off. let me off." the entire time he was in his car, he ticketed me for going 75 in a 55. $212. I'll be honest. I speed every time I'm in my car. I deserve it. I'm still annoyed of course, but hopefully this and the ticket I got a few months back will make me slow down a little? Not sure, because as soon as I got back in my car and drove away I accidentally sped again. oops.
