Do you think it has the makin's of a country song?
Driving home late Saturday night
I didn't stop for the red light
I was just goin' a few miles out of town
I didn't put my seat belt on.
As I approached the light I turned the blinker on
It was broke and flashing double-time.
You could see it a mile away.
So I turned the corner, through the red light
With my blinker goin' wild, and my seat belt light pulsing
And I see the town police car sitting there.
So I'm figuring in my head how much I will have to pay
And he headed off the other way.
I let out a huge sigh of relief
'cause I just can't afford that kind of grief.
Yeah, I know it sounds really bad. Worse yet, I was sick all day yesterday, and I just threw on the previous day's pants and sweatshirt over my PJs, with no socks on my feet, just shoes. I swear it was like I was something out of Jerry Springer, or Jail, or animal cops.
I am glad the guy didn't pull me over. A ticket for all that crap wouldn't have been any fun at all. And they are looking for people at that time of night, when the bars are tapering down, and people are making their drunk ways home. So with your blinker broadcasting that its burned out, I frickin turn right through a red light without stopping just begging to be pulled over. And I know the minute I am in the intersection I just screwed up, and start looking for cops who are just looking for idiots like me doing stupid shtuff with their cars. Worse yet, my last ticket was years ago, for a boulavard stop here in town, and the previous one was a stop sign -- same cop, two years apart, and he's asking me if I have a problem with stop signs, LOL. Well, we know now, it's not just signs its stops.
Ah well, alls well that ends well. Maybe the stop-sign enforcer wasn't on duty last night. He would have probably gone postal having me go through a red light and not just a stop sign.
I never realized how automatic using the turn signal is. It stands out like a sore thumb and I am trying to not use it, drawing attention to myself, until I can get it fixed. But no uch luck. I think I am more conscientiou about using it now that it is broken than ever before.
