My First Ticket

I got my first ticket today. It was rather horrible. I couldn't pull over to the right because I was right next to a freeway entrance so I pulled into the next neighborhood. I was so nervous, I ran a stop sign (apparently... didn't even see it... NERVOUS) and shook as I handed the officer my license and things. CRIED at him when he asked why I didn't pull over to the right right away. "I'm sorry. This is my first ticket." Wow.

Sigh. I guess it wasn't "horrible" but it did bring down my whole day and it was only 3pm.



  1. It leaves a nasty taste in the mouth doesn't it. I've got a clean drivers licence but almost blew it the other day by going over the limit in a school zone, right near my house, I know it's there and I always observe it. but this day I was distracted, trying to work out the quickest way to get to a job, fortunately the very nice constable just gave me a very stern warning. I hope you're feeling better.

  2. yes they are horrible, i have had my fair share. i am a lead foot. the thing that makes me feel better is a bad 80's movie and a reese's cup - try it :)

  3. Poor girl - and I know! They catched me with my mobile in the car last year. That's pretty expensive in Germany:-) regards Stefanie
