Listen to your wife!! SLOW DOWN!
Let me tell you a little story. Last night Ed and I were on our way home from visiting Brook & Kaylynn. We were driving on Shoreline and Ed gets a little excited when he drives my/our car b/c it's fast. :)
I looked at his speed and he was nearing 60mph. Then we passed a speed limit sign that said 35mph! I wasn't surprised, but a little upset he was driving so fast so I proceeded to lecture him that it was NOT okay to drive 20+ miles over the speed limit...Dangerous...Reckless. As I continue to go on somewhat joking yet serious, Ed smiles and laughingly says, "Honey don't be mad...there's a cop behind us." In a disappointed whiney voice I continued lecturing, but kind of laughing because I pretty much predicted it and thought it served him right...except the hefty ticket awaiting us. We lucked out and got a nice cop that asked if we were in a hurry to be somewhere. I told the cop that we weren't necessarily in a hurry but I had just seen the speed limit sign and that I was lecturing Ed just before he pulled us over. Honesty must have paid off? He let us go with a speed warning, but cited Ed with a fix-it ticket to get his CA Driver's License. Any fines if any will be less than the ticket price for going 20+ over the speed limit!! It was somewhat funny, but I hope you learned your lesson DEAR!!!
