Rough Day
#1312015 - 09/04/06 04:56 AM

so i took this girl out tonight. my left brake light blew right as a cop was behind me, so i got a ticket for that. when i got home, i thought it would make me feel better to go on the computer and listen to some music. while listening to that, i got an email from the guy i was gonna buy a 00 CSVT from saying that a man already gave him a check for the car. can anyone here cheer me up?

Bummer of a night for you, sorry.

You got a ticket, not a faulty? It's only a brake light, he could have been nice and given you the faulty and a chance to fix it first.

I would go to court and show that you got it fixed. Most likely the Judge would then toss the ticket for you.

The guy sold the car out from under you? He should have contacted you first. Not a nice thing to do.

You did have a heck of a day. I hope things turn around for you!

We had Hurricane Ernesto come through this weekend. I had to work 16 hours on Friday so I didn't get to go out and have a beer.
I worked 8 hrs on Saturday, drove to NY and back to look at a car I didn't like. Didn't have time for a beer.
I worked 12 hours on Sunday dispatching all of Bucks County by myself, 20 crews, trying to clear up all of the damage from the hurricane. Had to write a college paper = no beer.
Today I find out I'm getting forced into working another 16 hour day after they told me they were going to go by low man on the totem pole vs. how many hours of O/T you've worked this year. Well, I wasn't the low man and they decided it was going to be me anyway because my boss doesn't like me. No beer yet.
It could be worse.

Wow. I keep a spare bulb in my glovebox, planning for that very situation. What a jerk. ( the cop, not Shawn )

that does sound like a jerk cop, if the light went out while driving how are you suppose to know ... its not like it was out for weeks and you just didn't fix it ...

Any ticket like that in NYS, once you fix it, it should be dismissed. Show up on your court date and tell the judge it is fixed.
