To Tell The Truth...

Well Friends...I am not feeling any better these days, but decided that I can get those things off my chest which I am willing to share...here's one of them.

Shortly after I moved to Kentucky, I decided to drive back home for a visit. One of my friends decided to come along for the ride since I didn't have much tenure under my belt when it came to the 5-6 hour drives. We were not even a mere 20 miles outside my city when I saw the lights and heard sirens...the Fucker emerged from the shrubbery on the left side of the road. BASTARDS!

So of course, he asked for license, registration, and proof of insurance. I was pissed! He was about to cite me for speeding right...wrong! That wasn't all he cited me for.

You see...I still had my Ohio plates, license, and insurance card. And when he leaned his punk as over and stuck his head in the window to ask me, "Do you live in Kentucky or Ohio?" a lump formed in my throat...I began to sweat, and my palms were drenched. You see my friends, I have a problem with lying and all things inherent in it. I have a severe disdain for people who lie to me, and I find it difficult to tell a lie myself. I mean I'm not talking about the little "gray area" type things we tell our kids or anything like that, I'm talking about down-right, straight-up, blatant LIES.

So I looked at him and said, "Kentucky." Do you know that he told me that I had 30 days to get my shit switched over and on top of that still gave me the damned ticket and ordered me to go to traffic court...the NERVE!

I did as instructed, and it has been about a year and a half since...but today, I'm pissed again! As the economy goes down the proverbial drain, and my pockets are getting lighter and lighter, it pains me to see all these other fuckers driving around with plates from Ohio, Missouri, Virginia, Indiana etc. especially when I KNOW they live and work here! I just want to pick up the phone and call to snitch all of their asses out!!!

Am I wrong? Fuck, I had to pay $250 for my tags this year (which would normally cost $50 in Ohio) you know which includes an astronomical public school tax and a "convenient" property tax. We won't even discuss my car insurance which has been marked up by roughly 300%!!!!!!! I am mad as hell...because of my honesty, I may soon be living out of that car...those other fuckers should have to pay too! Including my friend who rode along with me back then...hell, not only did she just buy a house in KY, she's lived here longer than me and is still sporting her Ohio shit!

Ugh!!!

I think the lesson here, is not to waste your honesty on the man. It'll bite you in the ass every time.

Tera said...

Churlita~Lesson learned!

Susan said...

I think churlita has an excellent point!

I also think a good point is this yet again points out how living in West Virginia isn't all that bad. My taxes on my car run around $120 for a year and tags are only $30.

Susan said...

Oh and by the way I used one of your favorite phrases today in my blog

Tera said...

Susan~But how about insurance? Kentucky is a "no fault state," so premiums are highway robbery!!!

Susan~I am headed right over...I love when I have an influence on my fellow Bloggers! :)

Susan said...

My insurance is about $650 a year.

A girl has to have connections.

Nance said...

sigh. but you're closer to heaven? sorry, that's all i could think of. bleah. :-p

Tera said...

Susan~Damn, I wish I had it like you!!! I'm jealous. I hate you. Just for 3 seconds...okay, you're my sister from another mother again!

Nance~I knew you would wholeheartedly appreciate this! I know, I know...I should lied...DAMN ME!

NoRegrets said...

Oh, but you won't go to hell.

Tera said...

NoR~You sure about that?

NoRegrets said...

Well, at least not for lying.

Tera said...

NoR~Oh, okay, LOL!

well if your friend with you would have been any kind of friend like susan, she would have leaned over with her tits out and got you a warning.

this my friends is a lesson from Belle and Wendy on how to get out of a reckless driving ticket..lol

Tera said...

Belle~You have just given me reason to question my friendship with her...you are absolutely right! :)

M. Robert Turnage said...

Between your tags and NoR's running of a red light, I feel like I'm hanging out with the really cool bad girls.

Tera said...

MrT~You better fucking believe it!!! You betta ask somebody!

NoRegrets said...

I did not run a red light! It was yellow!

Just call me Daisy, btw.

Tera said...

Daisy~Sure...and the grass is blue!

dang hon, they just making u more down but shake it off and its all a hustle - everybood broke. have a great weekend

Alan said...

That's exactly how I lost my car on the mean NYC streets during my first move here. I had Jersey plates and couldn't afford to switch over. Hell, I couldn't afford to pay rent, much less plates. So a neighborhood cop started ticketing me daily. THEN I couldn't afford the tickets, much less the rent, much less the plates.

Then it got towed away for non-payment of tickets. And I had outright owned the car. Payed it off in Missouri where I bought it.

A shame.

Susan said...

Yes, I've been known to shove my boobs pretty much all around an officer's face to get Belle out of ticket. It wasn't fully intentional, though, since we were in a Hummer and the guy was only about 5 foot tall. His nose just barely cleared the window.

Anali said...

At least you know that you're doing the right thing. You can't worry about those other people. They'll get theirs eventually.

Just Right said...

Whats up Tera?

Tera said...

Torrance~Thanks :)

Alan~A DAMN shame.

Susan~LMAO!

Anali~I am trying to find comfort in knowing that :)

Just Right~What's up Just Right?

Alan said...

A GYOT-DAMN shame. But by the time they took my car, I was getting evicted any way, so it was just another straw dropped on a camel whose back had broken a long time ago. I just let life drag me around after that, and wound up at "George's" place (see My Blog; Tag--"George"). But out of that time also came one of the most amazing experiences of my life that still lasts to this day. I gained a real life superhero as one of my best friends, and I'm sure that if I weren't on the skids I'd never have made such a personal connection to that TV show, let alone develop the kind of friendship we have two years, going on three, later.

So go figure. They say every thang happens for a reason. I'm believing that more and more.

Nothing much how are you doing on this wonderful Friday

aforementioned friend is not really a friend and is not worthy of a such a morally superior person such as you. set your standards much higher - cheaters, liars and low-life need not apply.
