Today sucks! :( I am going to cry it sucks so bad!

I dropped a friend off at school this morning and on the way back the freeway was backed up so I decided to just go straight and follow the freeway on normal roads, but I forgot it was the wrong freeway and so I had to turn around. I got in the turning lane and waited for an opening in traffic and this idiot comes at me in the turning lane and almost hits me, but swurves away when he finally looks in front of him then starts yelling at me! ARG! So I turn around and there is traffic and the on ramp for the freeway is a lane that only get's off onto the I-5 North, where I didn't want to go, but I couldn't get left and got frustrated so just went on the I-5 North to get off and turn around.

I missed the first exit and got off the second one and finally made my way back home. I was behind this really wide white truck that was just a bit shorter then a semi, but a lot wider! I stayed far behind yet still couldn't see much in front of me so I decided to go around so I get on the side of him (2 lanes in same direction) and am going when I see a lot of cops in front on the other side of the road. So I slow down enough that I'm going the speed limit because the cops where no where near our side or nothing in the way so I went just under the speed limit.

This cop on his mortocycle spins around from the other side and get's behind me and turns on his lightS! I'm freaking out and he did pull me over and gave me a ticket for speeding! I was going 33 in a 35. The thing was there must've been a blinking light on the side when I was next to the truck just as I got next to it because I was paying attention to signs and I didn't see it yet we where in a school zone. He said it was one of the blinking lights and was on, but there is no way I could've seen it with that darn truck!

So I give him my registration and reach for my liscence yet it isn't there! :yikes: I'm freaking out trying to find my liscence and I could not find it! I looked for like 10 mins!!! And of course I had scissor right between the two front seats that I didn't even notice or think about as I picked it up and moved it around to look for my liscence. These where big scissors, not the little ones. The cop immediatly asked me to put the scissors on the other seat when I picked them up. I almost freaked out cause I never thought about them as weapons!

So I'm on the verge of tears and the cop just said to give him my info and he went and checked it all and just gave me a ticket for the speeding and not the liscence. The ticket is for $239 that I really don't have the money for! I barley have enough money for all bills and I only get very little food, meaning maybe a meal a day if that! So I don't have the money for this *cries* and I swear I was paying attentino to signs and the road I just couldn't see it because of the truck!

I left got home later then I was suppose to leave for my first class. When I get home I go inside and Lucas isn't there and either is Sargent!!!! I'm freaking out soooo much at this point! I call my friend who owns sargent and she doesn't have them and I call my other roomate and she doesn't have them! I'm freaking out even more! I don't know how they got out and to top it off Sargent is suppose to be in one of the rooms with the door closed and Lucas is suppose to be in the main living area.! I find that one of the window's next to my friends dresser is open and the screen is pushed out and I'm assuming my friend left her door open or didn't close it all the way because it's open. Of course she has a convieniet path to get to the window! So I'm guessing (though it doesn't make much sense for Lucas as he has never done anytbing like that before) that's how they got out.

I go outside and call their names (both have collars with tags on thankfully) and after walking a bit down the street Lucas comes running to me panting heavily, acting really tired with a big grin on his face (arrrg!) and his collar (the new leather one) isn't on!!!! I don't know how he got it off, but I continued looking and I couldn't find sargent so my friend is still looking right now and we are trying to find him.

Then my roomie get's home just as I had to go to class. So she continued looking and I went to class, but I'm really really late and I can't find the building!!! I find someone to help and it turns out it's on the bottom campus and I didn't know that so I run down there and can't find the class. When I find someone else to tell me I'm so late the teacher said I couldn't come in and to come on time next time!!

So I come home and my other roomate is home by this time and we all go drive around looking for sargent and she conveinently turns and tells me, while I'm driving, that she found my liscence in my car in between the seats. >_< >_< ........great. that was so helpful.

So we still haven't found Sargent and I am afraid to go anywhere else because I'm having such a horrible day!!! I also plan to go to court for the ticket and tell them what happened with the truck hoping they will lower it a little, but I'm not betting on it! Why does this all have to happen in one day?!?!?!?!?!?! :(

It happens all in one day so you can get the crap over with all at once - kind of like pulling a bandage off quickly or little by little ;)

Before you go to court, check and see if it will cost you extra, and if so, how much, if you lose. Ask around the courthouse and see if the traffic court judge is one of those who just arbitrarily takes the cop's side no matter what the circumstances are.

I'm so relieved that Lucas is back! I wonder if his collar is gone because someone was thinking about keeping him :eek: Just make sure the windows are down and secured wherever he's got access to them. Now that he's figured out how to go out for a jaunt he's likely to try the same stunt again . . .

(((((HUGS)))))) BabyB. It gets better. I promise. And just think, after everything you've been through, as long as Lucas is home, this is small stuff ;)

Babyblue... I am so sorry for your sucky day. You should definately go to court and try to fight it. Let me be the first to tell you not to get defensive or argumentative in front of the judge in case you get all caught up in the moment fighting the ticket. That is what caused me to have to pay the whole fine I was trying to fight.

If you go and state the facts and plea for them to at the very least drop the amount of the ticket... it might work. I wish you the best of luck. Hopefully they'll have some compassion for your situation and drop the whole ticket completely.

And I hope seargant comes home quickly. Maybe he's just out having a grand old time because he broke free. Let us know when you find him.

You should take a nice long relaxing bath and go to bed early tonight.

that was some good advice renee about checking about the traffic court judge. That makes perfect sense. I guess I wouldn't want to invest the time or court costs to fight a ticket that the judge was gonna side with the cop no matter what.

I had one sit there and listen while the cop testified that he knew I was speeding because he checked my speed against the other cars traveling in the same direction in front of and behind me, then, not three minutes later testify - under oath - that he never saw the other cars in front of and behind me . . . and I had to pay the ticket. Janice Snider - the traffic court judge - has always had a reputation as an incompetent attorney, and she's even more incompetent as a judge . . . and so many of the judges at that low level are like that.
