I was literally dancing in my seat. Right at that second I didn't make a complete stop at a new stop sign in front of a school. It was a rolling stop. Then a few seconds later.... yup, a cop was right behind me and turned on his lights! HAPPY FEELING? GONE!
I was so bummed. So I pulled over and he walked up to me and I told him I was having the best morning. He didn't respond to that, just said why I didn't stop. I could have lied and said I was not from the area, but I was drenched in sweat and in my work out clothes. I still lied, but I should have just said the truth that it was a new stop sign and I forget to stop sometimes, I told him I didn't see it. Which was a lie because, I did and it was a rolling stop, so he knew I had seen it.
He gave me a ticket, FUDGE! And we were at a bad time financially, I knew we weren't going to be able to pay it. I DIDN'T TELL MY HUSBAND! I kept it from him for over six months! I went to go talk to the judge and got community service. My mom was with me, she knew and we agreed that I would help her at church, as she helps and volunteers for a few organizations, so I helped out for a few weeks.
Then a few months after that hubby found a copy of my hours and he was so mad! I almost got away with it!
