Saturday I went eat with Whittier friends and Sunday Bellflower friends had small party for us. I'm amazed how condiserate people can be. Last days has been puring water, so track is probably in aweful shape. We have promised to go to help to track.. Finally i get laundry done and we can go. Next thing I know is evening.. I get home about 11p.m. Everything is still not ready. Some works with computer, packing, more packing.. cleaning up.. some girfts for friends.. lots of small things.
I pack my stuff to car and they hardly fit in. I drive couple miles and there is police man in same traffic lights with me. I just think that ”not now” Other line goes faster so I go there. Police man follows me. I think I should make a turn.. Police man turns too! Fuck! And the next thing I know is red and blue light on the car. I drive to parking lot.
”Stay in the car” says police man. ”You know why I pull you over?”. ”Well atleast I have a good guess, I say”. Thing is that we had have old tags in our car. Person who we bought the car from had put new stickerts to plate, so we tought everything would be ok.
I try to explane situation. I haven't use this car and I'm just taking it to man who is going to fix it and will pay tags. Police man looks like he understands. Then he asks if I have insurance? ”Well... kinda I don't.. I had but I didn't renew it cos I wasn't able to use the car. I don't see understanding anymore.
Policeman tells that he could arrest me, but he's not gonna do it. Normal thing would be to tow a car so I wouldn't be allowed even take my belongings from the car but he is not gonna do that eather. He only wants me to take wrong stickers away from my plates and recommends me to not drive the car. Yes, and ofcourse a ticket.. I have 3 months time to go to court! WHAT?
Police man drives away and lefts in car with tears in my eyes. What's gonna happen next? I shape up. I close the door and decide to take a chance.. Right at the same time I see that police car is parked behind the next building! Dammed. I can't go anywhere!
My friends comes to help me.. police man is no longer behind the building. My friends drive behind me, so others can't see my plate. We get the car sold. My time with physioterapist has past. I'mm totally lost, just thinking why this had to happen today. Not yesterday, not tomorrow.. today!
Unbelievable day! But this all is just about learning. I just hope that someone else can learn from these too :)
