I got a ticket this morning. Here's the story. I live in a town of +\- 70k, depending on whether or not the university is occupied. So, pretty small compare to my southern California roots. There are roughly two hundred sworn officers keeping the peace out there. I'm a gun toting, religious, "right wing extremist", if you will. I'm at the range three or four times a month. What I'm trying to say is that I'm on a first name basis with 80% of the police force (for the right reasons, not the wrong ones). I happen to also be one of multiple music ministers at my church. I tell you that to tell you this; on my way to work, I had my phone set to our church website, listening to our sets from Sunday morning. I'm driving to work, trying to get some outside work done. The problem, it seems, is that I was warring my iPod earbuds. Yes. I was operating a vehicle with headphones on. I saw the cop. I waved to the cop. I passed the cop. The cop pulls out three cars behind me, makes his way to the space behind me. Lights me up. I have known this guy for literally three years. His kids know my kids, that kind of thing. He got out of his car and literally laughed at me for being a dummy. Told me to take my citation to court and get it dropped, but he had to write it. Blanket enforcement, so that's all good. Overall a good experience. So, everyone point and laught at this idiot.
