Two years ago, I got a speeding ticket.
I can’t recall the details (no, seriously!), but my $183.75 email receipt, which included the $8.75 “convenience fee” allowing me to pay online with a credit card, says it was less than 25 miles per hour over the limit.
Before getting that ticket, I had plenty of warnings about my speed; I was overdue for one, in all honesty.
I hadn’t paid much attention to speed limit signs before that point, and I had road rage. Shameful (and dangerous)!
But getting that ticket did two things for me:
- It stressed the need to slow down and pay attention to the signs.
- It reminded me how much I hate paying for nothing in return.
Why am I telling you about a two-year-old speeding ticket?
- I’m making good on my desire to publish something here every week, but this week was a challenge.
- I’ll connect the dots and tell you all about it in a future entry.
