This post was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers. Life According to Candice.
I was a classy biker bitch for about 10 years of my life and one fine day, I received a ticket for not having a motorcycle licence, (um after 10 years of having a bike) cause that's how I ride!
So anyhow, I paid the $20.00 ticket the next day by mail, cause that is how anal I am!
Fast forward 1 year...
When I worked at the job of my dreams, ok not so much, the car dealership, I drove a demo as a perk of being a manager. My said car was mile'd out and I had to be moved into a different car. The lot boys are supposed to do the transition for you, like put a dealer plate on the new one, move your stuff over, etc...
Well, I had a very important nail apt on the day of the above transfere of vehichles and my lot boy forgot to put a dealer plate on my demo.
See where this is going?
I got pulled over and they informed me that I had a warrant for my arrest for an unpaid ticket. I was place in handcuffs (and not for fun this time) and then into the troopers car. As normal girlish form has it, I bawled the whole way to the station.
I was immediately hated by the women in lock up and was treated like Paris Hilton without the niceties. They took me to a cell and told me to completely undress. Still bawling, they told me to turn around, bend over, grab your butt checks and smile. Seriously, I have, what you say is an unpaid ticket. I didn't kill anyone, nor am I packing cocaine baggies in my ass!!! When that humiliation was over, I was made to put on those pretty orange outfits, which I do not look good in, then taken into a small cell. There were two other women in said cell. Mind you, I am sobbing and they are talking about their pimp not coughing up the 30k to get them out this time. Hello, I had on matching earrings and a belt, I don't belong here!
Then, one of them decides that she has to go to the bathroom. Did I mention that in the middle of this 5x5' cell is a toilet and this women (I think) takes a shit.
I cried for 5 straight hours until my then boyfriend located the voided check that paid the ticket within 1 week of getting it, showed up and bailed my ass out.
This concludes the most embarrassing and degrading experience of my life. All for a paid ticket that the county did not forward to the courts.
Anyone else have any jail time under their Umm, belts?
