Karma's a Bitch!

How many times have you heard the saying “Karma will get you”?  Well karma got me and my hubby (let’s call him D) good!

We live in a beautiful estate surrounded by lush green trees and freaking annoyingly curvy roads that someone felt the need to put speed bumps into at 50m intervals. At the very top of our estate as you leave the estate there is a dreaded STOP sign.

D and I have a bad habit of maybe, kind of rolling thru this stop sign. Repeatedly from my mother we hear ;

Mum: “one day you’re going to get caught doing that by the Police”

Me: “Yeah, yeah, I know....*crazy old lady*”

So, let me take you back to Monday this week when D comes home from work and decided he needs a new toy for his new Ute (pickup) and that we have to leave that instant to avoid the shops closing on us... so off we dredge with the kids up the curvy annoying roads with ridiculous speed bumps....

D: “Oh, there were cops up the top of the road before catching people rolling thru the stop sign”

Me: “Oh true, I bet their catching heaps of people! Hahaha”

At this moment in time, our friendly neighbour and good friend, Chris is driving down the road in the opposite direction, as the friendly people that D and I are we give the old one arm wave. But when Chris drives by he is screaming something out his window. What we didn’t know.

D:  “Wonder what Chris was yelling?

Me: “I bet he was warning us about the coppers at the top of the road”

D: "Lucky we already know"

We get to the top of the road, get to the solid white line, clearly indicating a stop is required and what does D do?

D: “Wonder if the cops are still here?”

And D proceeds to roll STRAIGHT THRU the stop sign, right into the arm of an awaiting Police officer.

Police Office:  “Sir, did you realize that you just rolled thru a stop sign back there?”

D:  “Did I? I didn’t even know there was a stop sign there!”
(D likes to think if he acts stupid, he might get away with it)

Police Office: “I’m going to have to give you an infringement notice today, Sir"

....and off goes the office to his car. 10 Minutes later he comes back with our ticket, $300 and three demerit points. I couldn’t believe it. Needless to say D was slightly pissed off and irritated. But do you think he learned!!!? NO! He decided to piss the cop of more and snatch the ticket and take off like a bloody hooligan down the road at an alarming rate. I’m in the seat next to him screaming like a banshee..

Me: “Slow down D, I don’t need another f*cking ticket!”

And to punish him even more, I decided that the $300 was such an expensive ticket that he wasn’t allowed his new toy anymore.

On our way home we stopped in at Chris’s house to see what he actually was yelling out. It was in fact:   stop at the stop sign!!

Hmmm... he could have yelled louder into my dumb arse husbands ear!

So what’s the moral of the story? KARMA SUCKS! And for heavens sack, STOP AT THE DANG STOP SIGN!!

Me, and my brand new ticket!

Funny story Sam!!! LOL!!
Sam, my mom got one at a stop sign before. I happened to be with her, and she's a "law abiding driver", to the point it irritates me, but the point is: The cop stopped her and gave her a ticket because she didn't STOP LONG ENOUGH!!!!!
Rofl!! I couldn't believe it.

I once got a ticket for failing to com to a complete stop at a stop sign once. It was at 3:30 AM. What the hell did I have to come to a full stop? Nobody was out!
