Told him I just got my period while driving and I was trying to get home fast to keep the blood from staining the white fabric seat. (True)
He said, "What?"
I said, "I began MENSTRUATING and I'm trying to keep the blood from getting on the white fabric car seat!"
He asked me to step out of the car.
Boy was he sorry he did that.
I hadn't succeeded.
This probably won't work for a man...
I've been pulled over twice in the past 5 years. Both times I've put my hands on the wheel, (one stop was at night, so I turned on the interior lights), and informed the officer I was a CCW permit holder. I advised him I was carrying a firearm and asked him how he wanted me to handle the situation, then handed him my permit along with my license. Both times I got off with a warning. (One time the deputy took possession of my gun for the duration of the stop, which he was legally entitled to do). Both times the officers thanked me for my courtesy in informing them I was armed.
Don't forget, every time a cop approaches a car, he knows he's putting his life on the line. Courtesy and respect go a long way.
Man stopped by State Trooper who asked. "Why were you speeding?"
Man answers: 7 years ago my wife ran off with a State Trooper and I thought you were trying to bring her back.
State Trooper: Have a nice day.
I was a police officer for 16 years, and left it due to the stress levels most people don't even understand!
We had a job to do and least of all was writing tickets. I gave out more verbal warnings than tickets, and these jerks who say we have a quota is full of it! We didn't have a quota, we could write as many as we pleased!
Patrol cops leave ticket writing to traffic officers and that;s there main job, investigating accidents and working traffic! Sure, if I was on patrol and saw some jerk driving like a maniac,I would stop him and find out what his problem was! And it was dangerous because you had no idea why this guy was driving like he was! It could be that he just murdered someone or held up a business, so you didn't walk up to the car window with your pecker in your hands, no! you had your hand on your gun and watched every move what this guy or woman was doing, and approached the car very carefully, sometimes from the passenger side! The most dangerous thing was a traffic stop! So, this crap about writing tickets for just revenue is a bunch of horse dung! If traffic wasn't enforced these idiots would be out driving as they pleased ignoring traffic law and causing accident and killing other motorists. When getting stopped attitude has a whole lot to do with it! If you act in a manner offensive to the officer, more than likely you WILL get a ticket! So, be nice and do not make any sudden moves in the car when the officer approaches. Being congenial will likely get you a warning.
if you need to be there at a certain time just leave early , no problem, no ticket, no fine .
This is ****, 43 times in 8 years, she should not still have her license. Reckless, irresponsible & not someone I want to share the road with.
Here's a novel approach: try following the laws. Then, if you should make a mistake, fess up and take responsibility.
People spend more time and energy trying to get out of something than it would take to do it right in the first place.
