Grumble...

1) Why, when pulling you over for multiple expired stickers, do cops ask "do you know why I'm pulling you over?"

2) Why, when they've finished ticketing you for something that's a crime only in the least ethical, most governmental sense of the word, do you say "thank you, officer?"

3) Why does the officer then say "have a nice day?"

4) Why doesn't the person pulling me over in my own damn neighborhood at least speak the King's English with a modicum of skill, and not sound like Sylvester the Cat and Gomer's love-child?

5) Why do birds suddenly appear?

Before I start being *too* irate, and venting on the hatred of cops instilled by my family being dirt poor since I was six, I will add that at *least* he only ticketed me for the stickers, and not for the expired driver's license that I didn't actually have with me. He still sounded like a fricken' warner bros character.

You are more pissed off than I realized, sorry about my comment, it probably wasn't a good idea.

Awoo? Nah, just ranting. I've got the money to pay for it, and I could have taken care of all of this months ago. Just lazy, and paying the price. If there's a comment from you in my e-mail box I'll skip over it, though.

My first comment was just tongue in cheek answers to the questions you posed...it just suddenly occurred to me that they might be offensive to someone who was pissed off though ;?)

Whew. I'm glad it didn't turn into a 500$ thrill ride like the last time that happened to me, at least. ('Oh, that's expired TOO? Let me see your insurance...') :/ Sorry you got stopped.

"Do you know why I pulled you over, sir?"

"You wanted my phone number?"

Questions one and two on the citation paperwork being, "what's your name," "what's your phone number"

These are things I've learned not to say to police officers...
