IN THE HOLE & AT THE MERCY OF THE COURT
Monday, Jan. 27, 2003 @ 12:11 am
I got pulled over today when a cop noticed my out-of-date tags. As I handed him pieces of paper and information, a series of dates flew from the officer's mouth... all of them expired.
Expired insurance card
GRAND TOTAL IN FINES: $1150.00
Had not my friend Tom been riding along with me, I'd have been asked to leave the car and cruise home with this over-ambitious copper. I'd be all: Hey honey, I'm home! This nice piece of horse ass was kind enough to drop me off. Instead, he kinda smiled, as though he were going to do us a little favor, and told me and Tom to do a Chinese Fire Drill, as Tom's license was non-offensive and up-to-date.
Now, the old insurance card in the glove box was just a jackass move, the current and valid card stuffed in a filing cabinet in the basement. But I've retrieved it now. The judge will knock off $500.00 once I flash it. As for the other shit: I'm at the mercy of the court. I should probably get a haircut and shave.
