this might be a bit long but i want to talk about it.
my wife and i were driving to my sons(he is 11) first football game. there was a lady in front of me in a mini van driving like a grandma. i don't
know the speed. i passed her. now, i didn't cut her off or brake check her or anything like that, i just passed her on her left.
when i got into the lane, i looked in the rearview(always do) and i could see the pissed off look in her face...i was still watching and she pops the
phone to her ear and i told my wife"i bet she is calling the cops"....she was on the phone for a second then she started TAKING PICS of my car with
her phone....i could see the flip open pointed at my car.....by now i am thinking wtf?
so a bit up the road, there is a red light. i jump out of the car at the light and i takr out my phone and i get a pic of the front of her car(glad i
did...tell you in a minute)...i figured if she can take pics of mine, then i can take pics of her.
we get the green and then this lady is still behind us and still on the phone. this is the first game at this place so i turned into the wrong parking
lot the first time....this damn lady follows us in. i go out and go into the correct lot and park, she follows in and then leaves....
about 10 minutes later i get paged to the concession stand(owner of the maroon impala)...
i go over there and there is a cop there wanting to talk to me.
he asked me what just happend and we got into it...this lady called and went to the station and told them i was 'following her closely'...thats
it...of course that is not true cause i was in front.
so i am at my sons very first game, and here i am in front of everyone talking to the friggin cops. he asks for my id and i give it to him. we keep
talking.....i told him i passed her, blah blah..
then he said 'well she has pics of your car and everythng"..
i am a bit baffled. i am thinking to myself, ok, she has pics of my car and all this is about me following her close, which i didn't even do.
at this time, another cop shows up and we are still talking. the other cop asked me if i got out of the car 'at' her....i said i got out of the car
but not 'at' her....he asked why i got out and i told him to take the pic, then i showed him the pic and said how can i have taken this from
following her, when this is the front of her car?
after a couple more minutes he said he thinks the lady got scared at how i look...(i am covered in tattoos)....now, i can understand this lady getting
scared as i got out at the light.....thats why i didn't ask her what the F she was doing...just snapped a pic.
BUT, what caused her to geek out in the first place? just cause i passed her?
so, the second cop said the lady would be happy if they gave me a 'stern warning' and then told me to consider this that warning.....
so, in the end nothing happened but i got a stern warning and i don't know for what. the cops came out to the football game(at a church) to lean on
me cause some 'crazy' later went on a tangent.....
i guess people just bug. i have gone to pass people and have them speed up and not let me pass of flick me off. i didn't know passing hurt them so
just wanted to share my bizzare story....
and of course, this game was at the cyo joint. my son is onvolved in that via his mom so i already stand out like a sore thumb when i roll through
cause of my ink....now, at the very first game in front of all these people 'not like me' i am getting leaned on by 2 cops....
^^^at the red light.....i am obviously not following her
