THE BEST DAY!!
-driving home one day (it was a few months ago so my memory is foggy), and have little traffic ahead of me for most of the way. get to palo and find a buddy of mine behind some slower tourists. as i am approaching i notice a small car gaining on us and he proceeds to pass me and is now in between me and my buddy, we'll call him Disc. so here we are, the 3 of us stuck behind some tourists, yet small car decides he wants to tailgate Disc. this didn't really fly with me for these reasons; Disc was behind other slower cars, our collective speed was much faster than most tourist traffic, and you don't fuckin pass me and just stay in front of me not going any faster. FUCK THAT PISSED ME OFF. so i decided to fuck around a little, swerving back and forth in the lane, sometimes into the other lane. after a few moments of doing this, Disc started to do it as well! so the 2 of us were doing a figure 8 type of dance (Aspen Extreme anyone?), sandwitching small car in between us. small car must have gotten scared or something and he pulled off really quick! Ahahaha, looked over at him and he looked like some punk ass kid. stupid fuck, we've been driving this road since you were 2. all the way home i couldn't keep the smile off my face.
-just the usual shit has been happening down there. 20 miles an hour so they can take pictures from their car, some even completely stop - in a blind turn no less. flooring it when there is a straight passing zone, yet back to 30 once a turn comes. fuck it gets tiresome. i need to fuind a job closer to home.
-ya, i got a ticket. some might think i deserve it, me included. but not on this day. i was actually being pretty good. i'm traveling south, no one in front of me so i can go as fast as i want within reason. banking around a turn, CHP is coming north and notices my speed (still within the limit) and my lack of front license plate. thinking nothing of it i continue on. i reach a red suv taking pictures, 35-60 at any given point. following this guy, i get close a couple times but not for very long, i was very forgiving this day. continuing their photo safari on the highway, he actually gets up in speed in the straightaway (weird huh?) and is somewhere near 65. this is about 1.5 - 2 miles since i have seen the CHP. coming onto the junction between flats, there's some flashing lights behind me. wtf? seriously? for reals? you've got to be kidding me. is this a joke? homeboy gets out, proceeds immediately to the front of my truck and asks about my license plate. states i was tailgating the red guy going 65. i was tailgating him for maybe 10 seconds before i realized how fast we were going and then let off. wow. what. a. dick. he turned around, sped like a motherfucker to catch up to me for a fucking front license plate? on top of that, it's somewhere around $500 for this fucking thing, even after he 'cut me a break' by taking the tailgating off. so i have a fixit ticket and a speeding ticket following somebody else. how does that work?
