Respect the Law

Last night I coasted through a yellow light as it was turning red and got myself my very first ticket ever. The cop who pulled me over asked if I'd been drinking and I judiciously said it was too early for me and left out the part about being on my way to the bar. Anyway, he handed me my ticket and wished me a nice evening and - here's the funny bit - I THANKED HIM. For an $85 ticket.

First ticket ever! I know it sucks, but damn you are lucky.

I thanked the cop who gave me a ticket for going the wrong way down a 1-way street in Princeton. He should have let me off. I clearly wasn't drunk and my WIFE and BABY were in the back seat. BASTARD. I felt so stupid for saying "thank you"...it was just out of habit.

Thank you, Sir! May I have another?

Manners are drilled in by your parents when you're young (I should know, I'm busy drilling my own kids), so I think your mom may have culpability here. Any chance she'd pony up for half?
