My fun day out yesterday, copied from my FB post.
Just bought the most expensive toaster ever
I was on my way to pick up a cheap toaster to replace the one totalled in my house fire
Driving along peacefullye when I noticed a cluster of police emergency vehicles pulling up on the other side of the road I was on
Couldn’t figure out why that was happening and was imagining a drama unfolding
Clearly somehow missed that a cop in one of the cars was signaling me to pull over onto my side of the road
Drove along a bit more and suddenly see a police car on my side of the road. It’s really hilly there so you can’t see ahead much
Began pulling over assuming it was normal emergency vehicle on wrong side of road soi needed to give way, when over the rise came a house taking up the full road and more!
I was startled to say the least and pulled over as far as I could and waited
Cop car came and pulled up behind me, also waiting
When house had passed a very angry cop erupted from said car and began yelling at me
I had been a bit startled and gradually realised I had missed an indication to pull over
Poor cop had, of course, seen this car ignoring direction to pull over and had seen in his future yet another round of pulling mangled a mangled carcass from the wreckage of my car hitting the house!
He had assumed I was a drunken hoon as well hence his aggression
He gradually calmed down as my licence, blood alcohol and drug tests all came back pristine
So I now have a $300 fine to pay, three demerits on my licence and a $25 toaster!
I can’t imagine how I missed the signal to pull aside. I’m not given to ignoring cops
At least I’m white so I’m alive
