So, I was driving down Menaul, the wind in my hair, my way cool shades on, and I got honked at! Wow! I still got! At 31, with 2 kids, 7yrs of marriage, driving the family car, oh yeah!
I look over and this policman puts up his hand and flashes 3 then 5 very forcefully and with great authority! I was going 40 in a 35 and he expected me to slow down MORE! All kinds of things flashed through my head. First of all I was appalled at being singled out. Secondly, what are the cars that are black and grey? Obviously not APD, so who does he think he is? He was in uniform but do I really have to listen to him? All this is going on in my head. In reality, I nod my head ok, smile sheepishly, and slow.down.to.the.speed.limit. Can you even imagine?! I was already being considerate by going 40 and not kicking it up to 50 like normal.
Anyway, I later learned that yes indeed, the black and grey cars are legit. and he could have pulled me over and given me a ticket or taken me jail if he so desired. So, thank you Mr. Policeman for only giving me hand signals, and thank you to me for keeping myself in check and obeying the laws of the land, no matter how irritatingly SLOW they may be.
