hatewa, you're too funny, and an excellent writer.
I have enjoyed reading your posts. They are humourous as well as interesting and debatable
Yes, I agree with you, fun is very vital for your health as well as entertaining..
Counting to 1 million, yes I tried starting from 1, I couldn't find my hilighter, lost track when I got to 99 bottles~ oops~ miles and then the car kinda broke down
Incidently<g> the hi-liter fell on the floor, it got stuck under the gas pedal, I braked, the car kept going, I nervously looked down, and hit the car in front of me. The guy in back of me, hit my rearend. So that my car was totaled
I never tried to count the mileage I did again
It saddens me that you are unsympathic for me tho' when I was fined $138.00 At least I didn't get any demerit points.
MY TALE OF WOE
My washing machine had broken down the day before.
I went to play bridge the folllowing day in the Church, it was Seniors Club day, and before returning home I decided to go and look at the price of a new washer. They were expensive, compared to when I bought my last one at least 25 years ago.<g>
You see, when I ususally go out from the church parking, it is a kind of main street so I would just drive right over to the passing leftside lane. I would stay in that lane until my exit. I never liked to change lanes.
I hadn't noticed the bus lane. It was new. There was a lot of traffic. It really was unusal. Anyway, that day I just drove a couple of feet and then noticed the bus lane, and got in the right hand lane as soon as possible.
Traffic was crawling along as there was a very busy cross street ahead, on which I was intending to make a right turn. However, the traffic was at a standstill when I got there, I was just a few feet from the cross street, I looked to see if there was a bus, there wasn't any traffic at all in the bus lane, so I darted out to make my right turn.
Well, it happened I did it before the curve.
Evidently, there is a white curve and you shouldn't go near that bus lane, until you get to the curve.
I didn't know that. I didn't feel like sitting in the lineup for nothing.
One cop was in a car with radar and the other was hauling the people that drove in the bus lane in. We were three cars when I was hauled. All with a long face....
I wasn't laughing then.
The cop told me I should know the rules if I drive, after I said, "I didn't know there was a curve."
I agree, he was right.
There must have been something I should have read about "white curved lines."
But they stopped a little old lady, going about 10 miles an hour to give her a $138.00 ticket and the punks out driving get away with zigging and zagging and breaking all kinds of rules and running STOP signs.
I didn't digest it very well. I am usually such a careful driver. I called him something that, I should have known, is reason to get another ticket, also I was lucky. But I was furious.
I didn't buy a washer, I came home and I guess the adrenal was flowing, as I moved the washer, checked it out, and saw this thingy, not a plug but a thingy that fits on another thingy , it is like one prong of a plug. I put the loose thingy on the prong. I tried my washer and it worked. This was after taking the back off the washer.
So, actually I saved about $500.00 by getting that blasted ticket
If I had tried to fight it, after calling the copper what I did, they would have thrown me in the clinker overnight, I guess. lol I understand they have pretty good librairies in the Club Feds tho' but I guess I would have been in just a solitary cell in my province with french books for a week or whatever, depending what I said in court. <~grin~>
Yes, tinted windshields in the front of a car are against the law in my province. The cops have to see who is in there when they give out tickets.
Especially if it's a little old lady ;0)
I didn't join The Civil Liberties Association either.
Like you, I just think that sometimes "Big Brother" does have his nose in too many of our affairs. I guess now in the computer age, they have a file on everything that we say on line too.. it must be big about me...hehe
Are you a member of the Communist Party, hatewa?? <that was just for fun>
I was just thinking of the McCarthy years and J.Edgar Hoover. Don't ask me why, I was too young then, I think:-)
This is just all tongue in cheek... and it has been a pleasure chatting with you Hatewa, as well as everyone else.
Now I guess I will have to think about another subject to debate and chat about...
Is Hatewa spending too much time on the computer? He looks tired! <just kidding>!!
