It finally happened

I moved to Utah in August of 2004. When I had moved here it had been about a year since I was pulled over for anything. I have not had a speeding ticket since I was 19. So 9 years. I speed from time to time, but since I moved to Utah have never been pulled over. Yesterday at work was one of the worst days ever! I let all the little things get to me and called Ben crying at one point because I was just done. I had had it. So the day finally ended and I got to finally leave work. Well I was almost home and it happened. The red and blue lights starting flashing behind me. I thought to myself, (alot of bad words) really, Why does this have to happen today of all days. When the officer finally got to my window he said to me, "Do you know why I pulled you over?" To which I replied no. He said you have a headlight out! Really office you have to be a dick to pull me over. I really wanted to say that to him. So I said oh okay. He asked me for my license, registration, and insurance and went back to his car. When he finally came back, which was forever later, he gave me a fix it ticket and said i had 2 weeks to get it fixed and show any officer my ticket and that I got it fixed, I wouldn't get a real ticket. If I failed to get it fixed than it would result in a real ticket. After he let me go I burst into tears again, thinking to myself, really why does the day have to end like this. I called Ben asking him what he wanted for dinner because at this point I wasn't about to cook. He asked what was wrong and then I started to cry all over again. Vented to him about how crappy my day was and how after 9 years of not being pulled over I had to get pulled over for a stupid headlight! Not a way i wanted to end my night.

Sorry to hear you had a crappy day. They really suck. When those days happen to us, we try to go out for dinner, but then that usually doesn't help because something else goes wrong to. The best remedy i've found is to shoot something, get a massage, eat fast food, or have sage help release the tension some way.
