A few weeks ago I “rolled” through a stop sign ((mind you it was in the middle of a parking lot in front of Lowes, where NO ONE was around ))
Then I turned out of the shopping center ((in the turn lane)) but had forgot to turn on my blinker,…
little did I know, a bored jerky po-po man had been watching me from a secret spot in the parking lot :(
got pulled over.. tried to explain I wasn’t from the area, on my way to work to TEACH CHILDREN, I apologized for being absent minded.. he replied “do they not stop at stop signs where you came from?” ….grrjerk
He left me with am “Inattentive Driving” ticket, and ACTUALLY said “Welcome to South Carolina” when he handed it to me..
I finally called the court today to see how much I owe… $160
I’m coming into your stupid town of summerville to teach your children art… give me a warning and let me go.. there were probably drug dealers and wife beaters driving past us while you were “welcoming me to SC”
I wish I could feel safe when i see a cop.. like “oh good, there’s the police, now i don’t have to worry”… but it isnt like that, it’s the opposite.. cops make me feel nervous and angry and paranoid. And I have yet to have an experience to make me think otherwise
