Recently I was pulled over by a policeman. I was unaware he was flashing his lights. I did not see him so he proceeded to blow his siren and also his top. After I pulled over, he came up to me and said very rudely, "What is wrong with you?"
You have free articles remaining.
I answered "Nothing, I didn't see you, and I was in the middle lane and couldn't pull over right away." I asked him, "What did I do?" And he answered that I was driving erratically. He asked for my driver's license and insurance. I couldn't find the insurance paper so he proceeded to give me a citation for speeding and no insurance. It was $516. I have since showed my insurance and paid my ticket. I don't feel I deserved it, but I also felt sad, as I am a 74-year-old woman and living on a fixed income. I didn't want to waste court time, either.
My point is, why can't older people get treated with a little respect and politeness?
It only takes a few cops to make the rest look bad. In the manner he used, I was treated disrespectfully. Karma will come along and bite him in the butt. More sooner than later.
