Grays Harbor County's Finest??



One would have to admit it. When your speeding and one gets pulled over- and one gets asked-- "Ma'am, do you know how fast you were going?" Uhhh..no. "Ma'am, do you know the speed limit here, on this road?" Uhhh..50? "Ma'am, I clocked you at 66 rounding that corner back there." Uhh..Im so sorry.. "Ma'am, please stay in your vehicle, I will be right with you." What? Do I look like a psychotic crack head? Im covered in "cozy cottage" behr paint, I have my gorgeous, well mannered 11 year old son with me,we are BOTH buckled up, we are driving a white Chrysler town and country MINIVAN-OFFICER..Im not "packing" forchrissakes!!!!Why dont you want me to get out? You dont want to dance? What?.. Why does one aways get the shaft? Why does ones husband, you know the man, ALWAYS get out of it, and one always GETS IT!!FARK FARK FARK!!

The most excruciating thing about it is that in exactly 7 days I would have had a clean record. (driving record, you bottom drawer thinkers) They still have me for solicitation..(kidding, kidding) Im depressed just thinking about what this will entail for the old Farmers Insurance policy..

Another horrible thing is that the littles were driving home with their dad and passed me --certain I would be hauled off to jail- Cried the rest of the way home.Big boy was with me, calling his dad. VERY concerned. What a shining example I put out there for my children. Lesson Learned, people..Dont call the nice police men or sherrif, or state patrol men "thefuzz" gets the little people all worked up..Sheesh.

16 miles over the limit will get you a ticket for $175.Grays Harbor County, gotta love it..

So, when you all come out to visit me at the beach, or come out to see the coastal nest. Keep that foot contained.Lucky for YOU, I had my camera, so I captured the special moment, for posterity. Arent you happy?

Busted.Buster...grrr

Awwww crap. That sucks major butt. I never can get outta anything either. Sorry your littlest peeps had to witness that....

I will obey the signs when I come to visit. Promise.

Bum.mer. Did he site you for reckless driving? The last ticket I was "involved" in we were going 65 in a 50 up to Stevens Pass and the coppa told us if it's 15 mph over you automatically get reckless driving. Even with a firefighter sticker on the back of your car.....

I can't believe you snapped a picture during the whole ordeal! You're too funny. ;-)

Ugh. Seven days away from a clean record? My stomach dropped when I read that. I'm so sorry. But you got a great shot for us and told a good story. Not that it's much consolation. . . There are some days when I'm glad I don't have many opportunities to get behind the wheel. They don't hand out many tickets to pedestrians and bicyclists.

You are a riot, I can't believe you took a photo! Why didn't that turd let you off the hook? I can't promise to keep my lead foot under check, and when I come to visit you, I assumed we would be soliciting to pay for the trip!!!

Oh I'm so sorry. I have to ad our son to our policy. I think it's going to double. And I haven't had a ticket or filed a claim in over 25 years. (Knock on Wood). Can you take a class to have it removed from your record? I hope so!
