OH my gosh. I hate being in a fowl mood, but it's really hard not to today. I have been up since six and have been enjoying my early peaceful morning in happy chipper mood, but as I was in a hurry to drive to campus (about 15 mins ago) I got pulled over. I have never recieved a speeding ticket, I always manage to play to dumb innocent girl role and they usually just warn me.(not that I get pulled over every other day,lol) Well, I got one today. I was going 42 in a 30, and as soon as he came up to the car he started being a jerk , so I knew I wasnt getting out of it and didnt even try. As you all prob know, Im broke, so Im not sure how this ticket will handle it's self. That's not all, I could have gotten over that,,I get to campus and am driving around looking for a parking space and am having no luck when I spot a really tight fit. Both white lines of the space are completely visible but the car on either side is really, really close. I gage it and decide that it will be tight, but I can make it. So,, a little strategic maneuvering and I am squeezing in fine,,,well, the side view mirror of the car to my right caught MY sideview mirror and RIIPP,,,it ripped right off. It is dangling by a wire. Their car was fine thankfully. I cant afford to fix it, and that will prob lead to another ticket,,,grrrr. But what most worries me is facing Tony, because all of these incidents (speeding, mirror) are my fault, darnit. We dont have the resources for me to make these kinds of mistakes, and he is just going to be so frustrated at me. Does anyone know how much it costs to re-attach a mirror. The mirror itself is okay, but the part where it attaches at is all broke.) Also, how much do you guys think that the ticket will be?? Oh,, btw, as I finally find a good parking spot and get ready to get out to walk, it begins to rain, and it was sunny so I didnt have my umbrella. I really want to be in a good mood today,really. I dont have the energy it takes to be angry, but I just am so irritates, mostly with myself, that I cant help it. The situation is almost funny, like what happens in movies, bad thing after bad thing. This is the first day back from spring break for me and I had a lot of probs over the break. I got in a huge fight with my aunt over her children and my grandmother,,it,,well, lets just say it's been exhausting. Pheew, okay done griping, all of this just happened so I havent been able to speak to anyone yet but you guys,,,sorry.
