ME? NO....NEVER!

SUPAH MOMMY wants us to post about a time we got pulled over.

I was coming back from grocery shopping and the back of my car was FULL of bags. The lights came on and the sirens went off....oh no!

In the same split second that I realised I was honestly BUSTED for speeding....I may have a slight lead foot....I also realised that my purse was at the bottom of the pile of bags....


"License and registration, please ma'am."

"Oh, my God....!" Breathing heavily....whiney....weepy (just a little).....

"What's wrong ma'am?"

"Oh, my God....I lost my purse.....I must have left my purse at the grocery store!" .....whiney...starting to breath more heavily....

Glancing in my rear window, "Relax, ma'am. I'm sure if you go back to the store, right now, they will have it."

"Do you really think so? ......whiney....Oh, my Lord...I hope so!".......whiney....

"It's ok. I'll just give you a warning this time, but slow down."

"Yes, sir. I will, sir. Thank you sir." Big Smile....sad eyes....anxious hands...."Thanks again, sir."

I was driving through a tiny town in Texas and must have missed a reduced speed limit sign. Why? Because I was listening to a book on tape, and SOBBING while I was driving. So I wasn't just whining a little when the cop came to my window...I'm sure I looked like a trainwreck. And no, it didn't get me out of a ticket!

There have been a few times I forgot my wallet/purse. I drive extra careful when I realize because I'm never clear how I will explain not having it if I get pulled over. Now, I will think of your story, LOL
