You know how you just think a day is going to turn out sweet.
You are looking forward to the start of the weekend, a bit of nooky for the first time in three months and just some chill out time.
Then your 14 month old wakes at 3.46am with a temp and crying. You settle her in with you and get her off to the doc first thing. She is lethargic and refusing to have a bottle or any food. She just quietly observes the house.
Doc does all sorts of tests, blood sugar, thrush of mouth, strep throat, puts urine collection bag on etc etc. Probably viral - if you're a mother you have heard this phrase a million times.
As you put kids in car and run in to grab prescription for Pamol your eldest yells out Sian's vomitting.
Doc comes out to reassess and concurs to still carry on.
On way home you realise that your Mum was dropping Phoebe off at 12.30pm, it's 12.15am and you're 25mins from home. You speed up a little but only on the motorway.
Mr Plod is hiding behind an overbridge, pulls out, lights on and motions to you to pull over.
You do so.
He asks if there was any reason you were going 115 in a 100 zone. Daydreaming perhaps? Actually Constable, my daughter has just vomitted and I am just keen to get home.
Actually Constable, I lost it on a night out 2 years ago and haven't gotten around to getting it yet. (mind flashing $150 instant fine for not having license on me)
Do you realise your diesel road user miles are over the limit. By 6,500kms. They cost $34 a thousand Kms and you have to pay 3 x that as a fine (mind flashing $750 fine).
Oh, and your rego seems to have expired last week? (mind flashing $200 fine).
Goes and checks my details and comes back with speeding ticket. For $80.
If you pay the diesel miles by next Wednesday I won't sent out a fine, there will be no other fines but please get everything sorted.
Have a nice day!!
When do you ever get treated this nicely by a cop??
When you cleavage is looking this fine, that's when:
