The nice state trooper Gunn told me my tags were expired! Yep that is correct expired he was so nice to pull me over this morning in the school zone so that everyone passing by thought "oh look at that horrible mom being pulled over by a trooper"-LIGHTS and ALL! Oh he even got some backup from the ever so nice county police officer too, just in case I was one of those crazy soccer moms gone bad!
So here is my reward for being that good mom who takes her son to school instead of throwing his behind on the bus at 6:30am!
Wanna know how much my prize will cost me?
Just in case you can not read it-That would be $171.35! So anyone got a few bucks I can borrow?
Well luckily this "nice" trooper also informed me that I will not have to pay this if I go get my tags updated and take the proof to the county clerk office. So seriously here is my question if I will not have to pay this then WHY did he even bother to write me this big lengthy ticket? Why could he not have just told me they were expired and sent me on my way and not made me sit there with 2 little ones screaming to go home while EVERYONE passing by looked at me? Why oh why Mr. Trooper
**EDITED to add***
You will all be happy to know that I am no longer a horrible criminal breaking the law and driving with expired tags. I went and gave my $10 for the emissions testing and then my hard earned $76.50 to get current registration. Then figured out which building in downtown I needed to go to. I carried my sleeping 2 yr old and pushed the 1 yr old in a stroller into the Judicial building (which btw has some shady people hanging around waiting on court). She promptly told me "oh I don't have the paperwork for this yet and can't do it!" Oh NO I said you gotta do something I can't drag these kids down here again to get this fixed. She must have felt sorry for me cause she made a copy of the registration and said she would take care of it, lets hope she doesn't forget and you don't see me on a "wanted" poster in the post office:)
