In God We Trust
I involuntarily donated some money to Pa. DOT. Sunday night at the house Jennifer told me i better get my log book caught up, nah i'll do it in the morning. Monday morning before i left she reminded me again. I'll do it when i stop and get fuel. So off i go. I jump off the turnpike in Breezewood, Pa and get motioned to pull over. DAMNIT i think to myself. He does a full check of the vehicle and checks insurance card, D.L, and medical card. All ok then he asks for log book. I told him up front that it is behind and i haven't caught it up yet. He takes it and looks in the back of the trailer. He goes to his truck and comes back in about 15-20 minutes. He makes me throw a load bar on the load and tells me he is gonna ticket me. Once again DAMNIT. He says the fine is 580$ and 10 hours shut down. He opts for the less serious violation and gets me for log book not current (friday morning was the last time i touched it, i don't work weekends). The fine ends up being 35$ but with all the add ons they throw on there it turns out to be 107.50$. I gladly sign it and get the hell out of dodge. Now the worst part of it all is i gotta tell Jennifer about it. I call and tell her, and to say the least she wasn't happy.
