Soooooooooooooper lucky!

I almost want to start a "Tickets you got out of" thread because of this story.
Apparently on the way home from work tonight I was exercising some spirited driving (wasn't paying that much attention ... just glad to be on the way home) and a county sheriff took notice, as is their occupation. I wasn't upset at him, just upset that I was being that much of an idiot, although I don't recall going that fast or being that careless (he said two reckless turns, I only remember one), but like I said, I wasn't paying real close attention. The thing that I'll remember the longest is this: "you were flying!" The title says "lucky", but it's more accurately "blessed", because the ticket would have cost in the neighborhood of $350. I'm grateful for good graces.

Re: Soooooooooooooper lucky!

Why you got out of it
1) Maybe he just got laid and was in a good mood
2) Maybe he liked watching your car
3) Maybe your a decent looking guy and he thought you were cute
4) Maybe hes gay ( this goes with #3 )
5) He's waiting for a bigger fish to snag

Maybe because he's a county sheriff and he just doesn't care like the ones around here.

Ill add some more.

6) Drunk on lots of Coffee and Donuts
7) You really weren't going fast, he just had nothing to do
8) Wanted to see your car (kind of like #2)
9) Your car is RED so your most likely to get pulled over even though you didn't do anything

... or perhaps you were just incredibly respectful and because you took immediate ownership of your actions, he felt that you just deserved a warning.

Re: Soooooooooooooper lucky!

Well since you did create a new thread you might as well just change the title to what you originally wanted.

well, he did kinda look like a kid, so .....
i've always made it a point to be very respectful of law enforcement (yes, sir; no, sir) and to take responsibility for my actions. that has treated me well thus far, so i'm holding on to it.
