My friend Kellie got pulled over a few days ago for running a yellow light ( Cop said red, Kellie says yellow ) That got me to thinking of all the times I have been pulled over or questioned by cops. ( 7 times, I think )
One of the times I was lucky that I did not get a ticket or worse. I have a problem in that sometimes I have a smart mouth. And it came out with a cop. But first you need the set up.
I had to go to the Post Office and check my sisters mail box as I was watching her house for her. It was late at night but this Post Office was open 24/7. You could get to your mail box but that was all. When I say late, I think it was 10pm or later. There were no cars in the parking lot so when I pulled into the parking lot, I pulled my truck along side the curb and took up 3 parking spots ( 2 were handicap and there were about 5 more on the other side on the entrance ) I didn't want to have to back up, just do a wide circle.
I left my truck running, went inside, got the mail and when I came out there was a cop car pulled up along side my truck and he was waiting for me.
The cop started to lecture me about how wrong I was to have parked in a handicap parking spot and was going on about how bad that was of me. I interrupted him and told him that I was 37 years old and that only my dad could lecture me! I also told him that I made the conscious decision to pull my truck over all handicap spots as that it was after 10pm and I did not think that there would be a rush of handicap people wanting to use the P.O. this late. Either give me a ticket or not. But do not lecture me anymore.
I think that he was flabbergasted by what I said. He did not give me a ticket. Yes, I know I was wrong about the parking but nobody but my dad can lecture me and that's that.
