You're Under Arrest

You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
You have the right to the presence of an attorney to assist you prior to questioning and to be with you during questioning if you so desire.
If you cannot afford an attorney, you have the right to have an attorney appointed for you prior to questioning.
Do you understand these rights?
Will you voluntarily answer my questions?


This morning, there was only ONE question and it was the following one: "miss, do you know why i stopped you?"

To which i answered, yes, i think i do ...

Apparently, speeding is a felony nowadays and going 96 km/h on a 60-limit road wasnt to the taste of Officer Whatshisname.

Yes i have my papers Officer. No i'm not in a hurry i just drive fast all the time. I mean, it's Sunday morning, 7:30am, there is nobody on the road. Apart from you obviously (damn him). What do you mean i was going 96? Of course not! Officer, come on, i was barely hitting 70. Really, your machine doesnt lie? Me neither Officer, and my car was showing up 70, i promise. Yes, i know 70 is still over the 60 limit but it's not as bad as 96, right? You're not gonna change it? Are you sure? Come on, really? If you do a nice scribbling, a 76 can easily cover up a 96. No? You don't think so? Mmm. Yes i know Officer, if i pay within 5 days, i get a discount on the fine (you gotta love Mexico for that). This is not my first time. Oops, did i said that out loud? Just kidding Officer. Yes i know, it wasn't funny, but you know, i'm French Officer, French people are not funny but they thing they are. Yes i shut up now. I will go pay my fine tomorrow Officer. Yes i know where the police station is. Ok then, i'll drive slow, i promise (to try).

Just glad the pick-up truck i was racing with this morning got stopped as well! And for the record, i kicked HIS ass!
