Sprouts Farmer's Market has a special this week. Today, the ads for the past and future week are valid. Tuesday night, I went to WM to take advantage of ads that would not be valid today from other stores. Plus, I used the double ad Wednesday deal from Sprouts. I shopped judiciously and went to pay for my food. Everything was bagged and in the electric cart. No checks in the checkbook!!! Since I had chicken in the bags, they insisted they would put my cart in the cooler.
Last night was foggy. My windows were steaming up inside. Windshield wipers were necessary. As I pulled onto a narrow street in a business district, I moved to the center of the street because I could see nothing out of the right part of the windshield. I was going about 10 mph, creeping to avoid hitting anything. There are huge metal utility constructions placed in the road where cars park. I did not want to hit one of those! As I turned the corner, blue lights appeared.
They gave me a warning for driving in the middle of the street. In the meantime, they discovered I had not gotten the little stickers for my tag. I was shocked. The guy was really nice and asked me if I knew the tag expired. I told him that I had walking pneumonia for the past several months, and I did not know much.
I wonder how much this will cost me?
I still think I was being cautious as I was driving and fighting to clear the windshield! I only got a warning. I know not to drive in the middle of the street, but this was two blocks that are practically abandoned after five o'clock pm.
Have you ever been unjustly chastised or ticketed by the police? Yes, I did deserve the ticket.
