Getting to Know You Question

Have you ever been pulled over by a police officer? What happened?

Unfortunately, I've been pulled over quite a few times, and each time has been memorable in some way or another. The funniest was about seven years ago.

My husband and I were living in an apartment complex in a semi-crappy neighborhood. Our apartment was way in the back, which was quiet, but also meant not visible from the road. Because of this my car had its windows smashed in two different times, with stuff stolen both times. The first time my brand new CD player was ripped out (my fault for not taking the cover off.) I was especially mad because it hadn't been completely paid for yet.

Fast-forward a few weeks, I was coming home from work and was only 100 feet from our complex, when sirens came on right away. I pulled into our parking lot, excited.

The officer came to my window. "Do you know why I pulled you over?"

"Yes," I said, and started to get out of the car. "You found my CD player, thank you so much. I've been wondering what was taking you so long to--"

"Get back in the car, now," he said. I did.

I looked around, not seeing my CD player. "Where is it? In your car? I'll wait here."

Suddenly my husband pulls into the parking lot, sees the cop car and me and jumps out of his car, worried.

"What's going on?" he asks.

The cop, not knowing who he was, said, "Sir, get back in your car." My husband didn't listen and the cop made a move towards him. He got back in the car as I yelled to him, "It's ok, they found my CD player!"

Just then a bee flew in my open window. I freaked out and jumped out of the car, only to be told (quite forcefully, I might add) to get back in the car. I tried to explain about the bee, but he didn't care. I sat there bobbing and weaving to avoid getting stung.

"You didn't come to a complete stop back there at a red light before turning right. I'm issuing you a ticket."

"So, you don't have my CD player?"

"No, I don't have your CD player," he said, shoving the ticket at me.

I think he was relieved to get away from me.
