53 in a 35 construction zone

24 Feb

I got pulled over for the first time ever today. (Obviously I got my first ticket as well.) I figure 6 years without a ticket is pretty good. Much better than most teenagers anyway. I was lucky though that the cop was merciful. I was going 18 over the speed limit in a construction zone, but he gave me a warning for the construction and only ticketed me for 5 over. Very lucky.

I do have to say that I’m mostly annoyed because I’m the poorest I’ve ever been and I am having all these sudden unexpected expenses. I lost my glasses a while ago and I have to buy new ones. I have to pay for a ticket. The list goes on…

I suppose it’s character building or something, but right now it just seems like a pain in my neck.

    Oh man! (I am laughing right now, but I swear I really am sympathetic) At least he let you off easy. Landon broke his glasses this summer, right before I lost my job, and we had to get him new ones. I was so mad! But we lived. And there is light at the end of the tunnel…graduation, adventure, and then perhaps a real job?
