Car Crashes and Women Drivers

Cross posted from The Future Was Yesterday

OK, I've been AWOL for a few days. I'm supposed to be minding the store at IAB for Worried, who is also AWOL attending to family doings, and I'm supposed to be a team member with Dan'l on (t)his blog. I have been neglectful of both.

But I have a good excuse, I whine! At least for a part of the time. I was in a multi-car pile-up, worthy of California's Hwy #5. BooHoo. My car was totaled. Wah! I got hurt. Sob! I went to jail. More sobs. I went to the hospital. Wail. I look like I tried to waltz in a cement mixer. Rats!

My long sad story is too long to post here - take up too much room - but if interested, you can access it here and find out How To Have A Multiple Car Pile Up And Go To Jail In One Easy Lesson.

My only words of advice right now is: Never ever commit Contempt of Cop when dealing with minions of the law. Bad move. I might add: if you're gonna paste some asshole in the snozze, look around first and make sure no cop witnesses it. Bad move to overlook that precaution. I'm getting careless in my old age.

Wow.

Someday, though, this day will be useful to you. Someone will say, "I'm having a bad day," and you can respond "Oh really? Did you crash your car, hurt your body, and go to jail? Hmmm? So this really isn't a bad day at all, now, is it?" ;o)

Seriously, I hope you recover and get through this with a minimum of hassle.

I was in a multi-car pileup many years ago. I was the 11th car in an 11-car pileup. It was during a driving rainstorm, and the man at the front of the collision- the only one who didn't get a ticket- braked suddenly to look at a dog by the side of the road.

I didn't go to jail then. But I was arrested many years later for failure to identify. It turns out that if you're minding your own business in a park, and a policemen strolls up and demands to see identification, the wrong answer is, "It's not 1936 and this isn't Nazi Germany. Go away."

But, back to the reason I came here, I know Gay rights is important to you folks, and I thought you'd like to see this interview:

Thanks, ThomasLB. Those multi-car pile ups are a hassle and usually indicates that somebody ain't doing something right. National I.D. isn't a law yet but some officers demand identification, whether it's a law or not. I think you committed the unwritten law (offense) of "Contempt of Cop" - failing to say "yessir, yessir, yessir, three bags full" when the cop speaks. A lotta cops are REAL sensitive to their perceived disrespect. :)
Thanks for the link. I'm sure Granny will like it, especially.
