i vowed to myself i would keep this blog about interests and not post personal shit but i'm mad so i need to vent....
let me preface this by saying i don't drink alcohol (ever) and the one and only ticket i have ever received was in the same month i got my driver's license when i was sixteen and we all know how long ago that was (ahem). i actually take a lot of pride in being an excellent driver (not to mention master parallel parker) so while a ticket is a regular occurrence or non-issue for some, it is a big deal to me.
so i pull out of a super brightly lit parking structure after having dinner for my friend's bridal shower. it's not that dark out yet so i don't realize my headlights aren't on and proceed to drive a whopping TWO blocks when i get pulled over. "license and registration ma'am..." blah blah blah...the initial officer wasn't so horrendous, but his fucking prick ass partner that didn't even look old enough to buy alcohol, somehow felt the need to be in a 'ready' stance with his hand on his gun the whole time???? i mean, it's glaringly obvious that i pose a great threat to the safety of these fine Los Angeles streets, what with being a tax-paying, upstanding citizen with a perfectly clean record and all. i'm immediately fighting the urge to mouth off so as to escape with just a warning, which is what i fully expect after hearing tale after tale of how everyone and their mother seems to get away with borderline DUIs and excessive speeding and such. then after nearly 15 minutes, Junior Supercop returns with a TICKET and can't be bothered to answer any of my questions. right, i get it, you have more crime to go fight...
i really appreciate that my tax dollars go towards training neophyte rude ass officers to ticket these types of situations to fill their daily quotas, while everyday in this city people get away with much more serious infractions.
tell me about some of your bullshit run-ins. reassure me that i'm not the only one that has been shafted.
oh and this post goes out to Officer Rodriguez. FUCK. YOU. YOU FUCKING FUCK.
