Ah, telling stories of getting pulled over!
First off it's only a ticket. At least you were not drunk, endangering your's and every other driver on the road's life. Just slow it down. So you get there a few minutes later. In the days of my youth I used to speed every where. As a result I have my share of cop stories and getting away without a ticket
The first time I got pulled over I was doing about 80 in a 55. The State Trooper followed me for about 2 miles, lights on and I didn't even realize it. He asked me why I didn't stop and didn't I see him in my rear view mirror. I said, "Rear view mirror? I don't care who's in back of me, I'm in a rush. I have to unload a truck down at Malibu and if I'm late it will leave." He said," Well what would you like me to do?" I promised to take it down a notch and he let me go.
I actually got a date out of being pulled over once. I was driving home from a college fraternity pledge meeting when I was tailgating a car. I was pulled over by a cute blonde female cop. She asked why I was tailgating. I told her I was trying to read the car's license plate frame (which I was). She then gave me a soberiety test which I passed. Then she asked me to say the alphabet. I recited the Greek alphabet since it was ingrained in my mind from the pledge meeting. I appologized and we both laughed a little. She told me I could go and to be careful. I asked her if she wanted to catch a drink this weekend. We didn't live happily ever after, but I did get some!
