Court Day

S, court didn't go as bad as I thought it would. I wound up having to go by myself. Charlie couldn't get off work. I left my house an hour and a half early and got the in plenty of time. Stupid me, forgot to bring cash though. So I drove around downtown, in the horrible fog, trying to find free parking. I couldn't find any so I had to dig through the car for change and ask passing people for change for a dollar.

After finding a parking spot (a block away), I had to walk up 2 flights of stairs to the first level. I went to the building that said courthouse, went through security, and then up to the second floor. Got there and found out I was in the wrong building. I had to go back outside and across the courtyard.

Got to the right building and through security again. Court took for ever and was so boring. Court started at 8:30 and my name was called at 10:30 (While my leg was shaking because I knew my meter was running out of time). Luckily we had a judge who was in a good mood and had a since of humor. My ticket for insurance and license was dismissed and I only have to pay for the speeding one. I also got a month extension so I have until the end of March to pay it all off.

I was hoping to not have to pay anything, but after hearing the judge talke to a few of the other people, I figured it would be easier if I offered to pay a little bit. Of course, I had left my checkbook in the car. I had to go back down the steps and half a block to the car, then back up the steps to the court. All the while waddling. I payed my ticket and had to walk back down the stairs and down the block. After all of that, I was worn out for the rest of the day.

  1. Glad things worked out for you. Too bad you had to pay anything but so glad it wasn't worse.
