I have never, ever, in my entire life, gotten a ticket for bad driving. At least not for something that was actually my fault. I’ve gotten a ticket for not having my driver’s license once when I was in an accident. I got a ticket for not having my insurance information once when I got stopped by a cop for some routine junk. Both those were dismissed when I showed up for court. So I’ve never actually received a ticket before.

I did today.

I cannot believe that with all the people who drive like bats out of hell and ignore stop signs and zip in and out of lanes, the police had nothing better to do than ticket me.

You want to know what I got a ticket for, I know you do. Well, I got a ticket for running a red light. Only I didn’t. Run a red light, that is. What I did was drive through a yellow light. And it turned red as I drove through. So the police gave me a ticket.

I refuse to blow a gasket over this. I’m just going to pay for it and get the whole thing over with. If my insurance decides to have a cow about it, I’ll deal with that later.
