The worse night of my life!
So, I have a funny story...I really just had one of the worse nights of my life! All I wanted was a little Ben & Jerry's ice cream so I leave my apt. (without a jacket) to go to the store. I accomplish the mission of getting my ice cream but on the way home (less than 1 mile from my apt) I get pulled over for going like 32 mph in a 25 mph zone. It is 11 degrees and slightly breezy outside. This is where the worse night of my nightmare begin. I roll my window down and get my license, insurance info, and registration for the cop. Of course I am shaking a) because I don't want a ticket (who doesn't have the deer in the headlights look when they get pulled over and b) because my window is down and it is freezing outside (I don't have a coat/jacket mind you) So the cop comes back and asked if I have anything illegal in my car. Of course I don't !!! I am not that crazy! (Even if I did I wouldn't confess) He then states that I look very suspicious and asks if he could search my car. I didn't really car so I was all like, "O.k search it." I was still in the driver's seat. He then said that he needed me to get out of my car and go stand with this other officer. The other officer must of pulled up with no lights whatsoever on because I didn't see him pull up. Creeper! I was kind of mad because now I am out of my car and have on no jacket. The first officer precedes to thoroughly search my car every crack, crease, crevice, bag, envelope...everything! I am standing thinking, "Wow 2 cops here...this is like the entire Rexburg Police Force." So I make small talk with the other officer. I asked, "Is this normal procedure?" He then asks if I have a warrant out. My next thought was, "Crap..I think I have one in Tn from wrecking the ambulance and not showing up for court." Of course I didn't confess to this. I replied, "Not that I know of" The searching officer finally gets to my trunk. I carry my food storage in the trunk of my car. There is a ten pound bag of flour back there. I wanted to say, "That's actually cocaine in that bag I just disguise it as flour in case something like this ever happens" Anyways the search of my car came to an end but then I had to be searched. Mind you I didn't have on baggy clothes. They still had to search me. Then the officer looks all authoritative and says, "Everything looks fine. I'm going to let you off with just a warning." I wanted to be like, "Of course you are, you just searched and frisked me with no good reason. That was probably the most action you've got in your life!" So that's the story of the worse night of my life...or week...I know I am being over dramatic. Thought you might enjoy it. I find it pretty humorous now that it is over and I finally got to eat my Ben & Jerry's.
