TICKET!

Yesterday I was taking the kids to go to McDonalds. I was in a rush to get home and get them ready for bed. I was speeding and I got pulled over. The following is dialogue that took place as I got my ticket.

Logan: "Mommy, why are you crying? Was that policeman naughty?"
Me: "No, policemen aren't naughty. They are the good guys."
Logan: "What's wrong mommy?"
Me: "Mommy made a mistake, she broke a rule. It's the policeman's job to make sure everyone follows the rules. This ticket reminds mommy to always follow the rules."
Logan: "Do I get tickets?"
Me: "No, only the policemen can give tickets."
Logan: "Lucky girl."

That is to funny! I got a speeding ticket last week and and I just wanted to tell the police officer, "Could you just please hurry up? I was not speeding for no reason, I am in a hurry!" He wrote me for 5 over and it's $85.00!!!!! :(

Isn't it funny what kids actually think when you get pulled over. Just the other day a friend of mine got pulled over and her son must have looked terrified because the policeman gave him a coupon for a free slurpee. When they got hom he jumped out of the car, shouting. Mom got a ticket and I get a Slurpee! Aww the injustice.
