Know what really grinds my gears? (Episode 2)
And while we're on the subject of laws, let's talk about Police Officers. Cops. Can't stand them.

I'm sure they have their moments, but as a rule, I'd prefer if none of my friends were also Cops (I DO have a friend or two who are Cops. Sigh.)

So, here's the clincher: I got a ticket a couple of weeks ago.
"For what?", you ask?
I'll tell you. Stopping in front of a firestation.
"What?", you say?
I know what comes next. "Did you like, stop your car and get out and walk away? Everyone knows not to do that."
No. I didn't stop my car and walk away. Traffic was a little heavy. Cars were backed up on the street I turned on to. There were some shops on the corner, and the firestation was next to that. I moved up in traffic, and stopped behind the car in front of me. Next thing I know, this police officer was on foot, waving us down. Crazy. A local ordinance. He wasn't nice or polite about it, either. Asshole.

And what really grinds my gears.

Know What I'm Sayin'?? I've been holding on to this one for a few weeks now, because I was so angry I didn't feel like discussing it.
