Five Days of Pay

I got a rolling stop ticket. It was early morning and no one was around for miles. The cop said he saw me look around and slow to .5 mph, not a complete stop. The ticket is $380. I understand that cops give their family and friends [a break], also firemen and people like that don’t have to pay—but I have to work five days to pay this thing, probably to remodel the courthouse.

If the thieves don’t get your money, the cops will. Stay in the house and watch TV.—Pam Rochell, S.B.
