Serve and Protect......My Ass!!!!!
current mood: pissed off
So, Chris and I were both off this morning. We went to the mall and then were driving to Smokey Bones to eat lunch. We were driving on John Young and had to turn left onto Sandlake. Ok. So you know when the cars back up just to the end of the turn lane so you can't get in it? So instead of waiting there and missing the turn light, you go around the car in front of you...even though the two drivers side tires may go up on the median or in this case, roll over the grassy area that splits traffic.
Well, apparently there was a cop sitting on the side of the road and he thought that manuver provided him justifiable grounds to pull Chris over and give him a ticket for "Not driving in a designated lane"
PS that ticket is $118 and 3 points on your driving record.
Can we say Bullshit? Are you freaking kidding me?! I wonder if Officer Garcia realized that if he would have gone over to the next cross street, he could have busted about 3 chicks who were leaving the Waffle House for prostitution. Un-freaking-believable.
And he was condesending as hell about it.
PO: "Do you know why I pulled you over?"
Chris: "Uh.....No, officer I do not."
PO: "Why didn't you pull over in that median I was pointing to? Didn't you see me pointing?"
Chris's Thoughts: "Well, yes, I did see you pointing, but there was an entire lane of traffic also waiting to turn left next to me seeing as it was a double turn lane. Last I checked I couldn't magicly go through other vehicles."
Chris actually said: "Well, I wasn't sure what you were pointing to. Sorry."
PO: "Well, I pulled you over for driving on the grass. Don't you know you can't just drive on the grass if you feel like it."
Chris: "I wasn't driving on the grass."
PO: "Yes you were, your car partly went onto the grass as you were going into the turn lane. And that is not driving in designated lanes."
I hope that man gets fired or something just as bad. What an asshole. Like there wasn't something better he could have done with his time. Thanks for ruining the whole afternoon Officer Garcia.
