    Okay...last month, I got pulled over and got two tickets, one for an expired inspection sticker, and the other for illegal tint. THREE DAYS LATER, I get pulled over AGAIN, and he only wrote me for the inspection sticker, said if I got the tint off the front windows before he finished writing the ticket, he wouldn't give me one for that. Was very rude, too.

    Anyway, court on those matters were today. I went in, and each of the fines are $155 each. They reduced the charges and all, but then they wanted the whole amount today. I panicked, cause I flat out DON'T HAVE IT. I paid them $50, and was released with the condition that I have everything paid off by June 23.

    Okay, so I'm leaving. I was parallel parked right in front of the city court. I go to back up to pull out and BAM, ran smack into the car behind me!!! I quickly pulled up a bit, looked around to see if anybody saw me. Nobody was outside. I thought seriously about jetting. Then I saw some windows. Thought maybe someone saw me, then they would get me on hit and run. Conscience got the better of me, so I get out to get a license number or something. Big decal on the side of the car "MARSHALL'S OFFICE". Greaaaaat.

    I trudge back in, three officers are standing there. They looked at me, I just looked back. Then I got it out..."I sorta just backed into y'alls car..." They said, "are you serious??" So we all walk out to look. Fella looked at it, said hey, you didn't even scratch this car or yours, get on out of here, you have enough problems!!!

    I suppose it's maybe just a teensy bit funny NOW, but let me tell you....I was SCARED!! I just knew I was going to have another ticket on top of the ones I already had!!

    I mean, what IDIOT goes to court on traffic tickets and THEN hits a car, right there in front of the courthouse???

    <~~~~~~~~~~~ That's who! LOL

    Not too long from now you'll find it hillarious! I would:>) We all do the worst things sometimes but in hindsight they can be really entertaining stories to tell...

    They reduced all of mine to a "child restraint violation". I told them I wasn't sure I wanted THAT on my record, either, but they said then it would be a non-moving violation. BTW, my "baby" is almost 8, so we don't even OWN a car seat anymore!

    I just want to say that I'm proud of you for going back in and 'fessing' up.

    We've had our car hit twice while parked and the dipsticks who hit us left both times. Considering the dents ... they know they hit us. I think people who leave after that type of thing are scum... but that's just me.

    And, your situation is funny ... hope you can laugh at it in the near future.

    Some days it just don't pay to get outta bed :aww

    Give it a few days and it will be as funny to you as it is to everyone else.

    Several years ago I was driving home (in hubby's truck of course!) some jerk backed out of a drive way - he was turning around in it - and into the truck. He gets out of the car and walks off. I end up being cuffed and taken to the jail for a bad check from 5 years prior to this that I didn't know anything about. The state attorney told me that they never contacted me!! That was one of the most embarrassing times of my entire life!!! Any way point is that now when everyone else laughs about it so do I.
