Friday Foibles ~~ Just Can't Fix Stoopid

Check out the fun haiku and Mardi Gras contests below. Cool prizes involved!!! Now, back to our regularly scheduled Friday fun...






I was driving when I saw the flash of a traffic camera. I figured that my picture had been taken for exceeding the limit even though I knew that I was not speeding. Just to be sure, I went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed.


Now I began to think this was quite funny, so I drove even slower as I passed the area once more, but the traffic camera again flashed.


I tried a fourth and fifth time with the same results and was now laughing as the camera flashed while I rolled past at a snail's pace.


Two weeks later, I got five tickets in the mail for driving without a seatbelt.

No, this wasn't really me, but it coulda been! Have you had any experience with a traffic camera, or some other driving related mishap?

Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!!

Funny Angie, I was reading this wondering how stupid a person would have to be to circle back for another ticket over and over. Then I realized it was a joke. Ya got me! :)

In NYC, you can always tell where the camera lights are; they're at the intersections with the unusually short yellow lights. I've only received one.

Too funny!

Diane said...

Did not see that one coming. Our city is too small for such extravagances I think. :O)

Angie Ledbetter said...

LOL Charlie. Glad I gotcha! (Here, the lights take many forms...some look-alikes actually being sensors and light synchronizers.) arghhh! But even so, I'd still rather drive here than in NOO YAWK CITY! :)

Karen - Love you profile pic!

Diane - Be glad! Like Pavlov's dog, I am so well trained now, I screech on the brakes whenever it appears that a light MIGHT turn yellow. :)

LAUGHING!

Okay, when I visited Baton Rouge one time, I told GMR (PP2) to rush thru the yellow light because I was frustrated with the traffic, but then he decided not to...and good thing, because I looked up and said - "Hey good thing you didn't listen to me, they have traffic cameras here now!"

He said, "What?" ANd I opened the window and pointed up at the camera...

Then as we drove away when it turned green, this car load of college kids were cheering me on, laughing and clapping and cheering to beat the band....

All I could think was they thought instead of me pointing, this ole hillbilly from WNC was giving the camera the Finger! LAUGHING!

Karen said...

Funnnny! Love it. (Check out David's blog, he has two more spices and was approved for "Virginia's Finest" in foods! Thank you for your sweet support.)
