This is exactly how I feel today. I had to take my daughter to a doctor's appointment today. I had a friend coming over to scrapbook at 2PM, so I didn't have a lot of time to get back. The doctor kept us almost a half-hour longer than I had planned for so the 20 mile drive back home had to be a quick one.
This is where things go wrong. Now granted, I was doing 82 in a 65 MPH zone, but it's a highway and my big mommy van can really cook. I've been driving for over 27 years and I have never, EVER been pulled over or gotten so much as a parking ticket. Well, my streak ended today at 2:03pm today. And in front of my kid, too.
The ticket is going to cost $136 dollars; ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? Juanny was very nice about it; he didn't laugh on the phone for over 4 minutes. He has no right to make fun of me; he's been driving a lot less time than I have and he's gotten 3 tickets, including a reckless driving one. Still, my obvious superiority over him gives me no solace today.
Do you know how much YARN I could buy with $136??? CRAP! And to make things worse?? The friend I was rushing for didn't end up coming after all.
I'm going to sit and knit for a while. And I'm NEVER DRIVING AGAIN. At least until tomorrow, that is.
