Today I have a guest on the blog with her own conversation. Make sure you take a read because you never know when the po po will be having a conversation with you.
Kita’s conversations are one of my favorite blog posts to read on Friday.
I recently had an interesting conversation that I wanted to share with you!
When I got off from my primary job after the 4th of July, I was headed to my part time passion to teach not 1 but 2 fitness classes. There is a small window I have to get off, change clothes, get to the gym and ready to teach
I drove by this police officer & saw him glance over at me suspiciously.
Pause – Granted, I do ride with me seat ALLLL the way back & I do look a little crazy when I get off from the night shift, compared to a normal day.
However, it was no reason for the following occurrence….
Lights come on, I pull over
Him: License please (hands him the license with as much smile as I can muster because I thought my heavy foot had gotten the best of me)…. Is this your car?
Me: (side-eye) YES! (Thinking – No one ever pulled me over to ask me way my 95 Camry was mine)
Him: Ma’am do you know why I stopped you?
Me: No Sir (I will play the game, I’ve had too many speeding tickets in the past) I do not
Him: I stopped you because your tag is expired
Hold up wait, how did he figure that out so quickly???? Really you stopped me because of your first question but
Me: (thinking he’s full of it) Nooooo, I don’t have the sticker on there but it’s probably in my pile of mail
Him: No, I checked…It’s expired… you just had a birthday … Insurance card please…
Me: (cussing myself for the backed up email inbox and pile of mail on my floor) I’m sorry, I live in two places and my mail gets backed up, the renewal must have gotten past me…
(I can hear my Mother and Father’s voices: You really don’t need to let that mail pile up like that)
SN: Now I can’t find my insurance card & I’m getting frustrated
He’s just standing there looking at me.
Me: (while shuffling through my wallet that contains about 30+ cards to who knows where) I’m sorry, I work the night shift, and I’m a little flustered…
Him: Where do you work?
Me: (frustrated at all the nosiness of the morning) At the 24 Hour Pharmacy down the street
Him: What do you do at the 24-HOUR PHARMACY (stresses the syllables in all of that)
Me: I’m the overnight pharmacist (I’m 38 hot right now)
Him: OHHH (like that explained everything walks off without insurance card)
He comes back a few minutes later.
Him: Alright Ms. Lady, make sure you take care of that tag before someone gives you a citation. You have a good night!
Me: Thank you!
I really am thankful but I have so many emotions running through me! I felt profiled and nothing I could do about it, after all…I was in the wrong…
BBUUUTTTTT…How he discovered it….

· How do you keep up with snail mail? Do you open it daily, weekly, or random?
· Do you know your rights when being pulled over?
· Do you think I’m trippin or was I right to feel some type of way about this occurrence?
