. . . i'm just saying . . .

. . . hypothetical question . . .
. . . say you had just exited
the superstition freeway and
were driving north bound
on rural road in tempe, arizona . . .
. . . what would you say
the speed limit is there? ** . . .
. . . and say you were
approaching broadway,
where the light was red and
you were going to be the
third person waiting in line . . .
. . . i'd say it looks like
is in my near future . . .
** did you say 45 mph?
yeah, i did too,
but nice mr. motorcycle cop
said it's 35 mph . . .
. . . he was also happy to say
that i was going 52 mph . . .
{however, it is interesting to note that
as soon as you turn right/east onto broadway
it's 45 mph . . . go figure}

Would a "poor baby" (pout face) help right now? The only thing sad about it is that you haven't had to go before. ... And Alex P. Munoz will not be your teacher. Trust me he's a good teacher.

when are you going? can we go together? I just got a ticket when almost to Tuba city on the way home from St. George UT. It was totally a speed trap stupid cops. But seriously tell me when you are going and we will sit by each other and pass notes. Just a thought.

That really stinks! If it makes you feel better I got a ticket for not stopping at a stop sign (so says the cop) and I actually think I'm going to get my license taken away.. :) Have fun in class!

I got pulled over on the 60 (on the way home from swimming at my mom's house) for not using my turn signal...my 4 kids in the back seat must have entertained the cop enough for him to just give me a warning. They asked him if he was putting their mom in time out. :0)
Hope your class goes by fast!

Don't you just hate that? I'm sorry...I got stopped right over here by our chapel on 32nd and Emelita...I had to drop a child at Irving and Stephanie was at our house sick and I was just going around the block and back home so I thought I would help her by taking her youngest...didn't have a car seat in my car...I thought to myself..I'm just going around the block...he can sit on grandma's lap...it'll be fun...NOT!!! This will tell you how sick I am I pulled my shirt over the top of him so I would look like I'm pregnant...oops...she had already seen the stowaway on my lap...crap...This lady cop was TICKED at me...not only did she write me up she stood there and watched me walk home carrying the baby...with my tail between my legs...John Rogers was standing in his yard and asked me if he could give me a ride home and I told him the bad cop was standing there watching us that I better keep walking...yep been there before too!!!!

Stephanie I am sorry to hear about your ticket I would have guessed 45on the speed limit as well, but that story from Kayola was hilarious. That is something that would happen to me.
I am sure Bro. Hofmann would love to have you in his class.

I am so sorry. I got my last ticket on Mother's Day, while going to my mom's house. Can you say worst "present" ever. A big bottle of Diet DP and a bag of swedish fish helped ease the pain.

I know that stretch of road very well and we are not very good friends!!! I seemed to always have to discipline myself as I was rushing to my ASU class on a daily basis but it was because of the photos they take of fast drivers!!!

elisha and brett said...

So sorry! Driving school is horrible! Looks like you guys have been busy!!! I hear the Idol concert was a blast! With you guys though, how could it not have been?
