uggh! :)


Well, it happened! I got pulled over today! For anyone that really knows me, they know that I have always had a fear of cops pulling me over. If there is one behind me while traveling down the road, I usually turn on the nearest street. Weird, but I have been this way since I began driving. Today I was headed to Target this morning. I was minding my own business. I looked in the review mirror, and there he/they were! I only had about a half of a mile left to get to Target. The police car continued to stay behind me. I turned my blinker on, to get into the parking lot, and right then...his lights went on! YIKES! I pulled over in the parking lot. I had NO clue as to why I was pulled over. The policeman came to the window, and asked me if I knew why I was pulled over. I let him know I had no idea. He told me my tags had expired. Right then I was not happy! Steve is in charge of the tags! ugghhh! I still am not sure how Steve over looked getting new tags. I think he has been so busy that he over looked it. Now I am in charge of tags! I took the yearly job over as of today! :) The policeman told me there was nothing to be nervous about. I let him know I wasn't nervous, just a little mad at a certain someone...Steve! The policeman didn't give me a ticket, and actually was pretty nice about it. I am headed down to DMV this afternoon. Steve is driving the Suburban, because I am afraid I'll be pulled over again! :) Thanks Steve! :)

I'm with you! I always try to stay out of their way and yesterday on a 2 mile drive I saw 8 - yes EIGHT police cars! We are sure well looked after here in Mesa.

Berlynn was pulled over last month for the first time because of expired plate. She was scared to death too. Her plates had been expired since October of last year. That was my job and totally over looked it. But I have 6 vehicles, and 4 trailers I have to register each year and if I don't get a notice in the mail then it doesn't get done. I'm sorry you had to go through that but at the same time I have to chuckles because we just experienced exactly that. The police let Berlynn off too. :)

That's the worst, when you didn't even know why! But did you buy anything fun at Target to make up for it!

Isn't it funny how guilty you feel when you get pulled over? At least I do. Even if its about a headlight or license tabs.

So sorry.

Hey, did you find out the names of the new Elders?

That's is so scary!
My mom is so bad about getting my tags. I always freak out if they expire because I have a fear of getting pulled over too!
I guess I am just paranoid.

Hopefully Steve will get pulled over now! haha jK!

Oh no! I'd be mad too! When I see a police officer, my heart drops to the bottom of my stomach, literally, and my knees shake horribly. Ugh!! SO glad he didn't give you a ticket!
