I was just wondering if what has been happening to me is common? About a year ago: I was subbing at one of the community school. This was a 1 classroom site, pretty much for the same students who I have had in the lock up - they have either been locked up, and got locked up later, kicked out of school, etc. They were pretty hard to handle. So I was speeding down on a city street at 7:30 am - no cars around. I did that every day for a week or so. Cop pulls me over, asks all the typical questions (dl, reg, ins, do I know why he pulled me over, where am I going). When he heard the school's name + location, his whole attitude changed, and said "well, you know you were speeding and you were not supposed to. And you won't do it again, right? and he let me go. I couldn't believe it. I guess he had been called to that place quite a few times, and was thankful for anyone actually willing to go and teach there. This year, in May: same situation, but I was coming off o the freeway and didn't stop at the stop sign. Same questions, same everything, and when he heard that I was going to the lock up, could see the look in his eyes changed. Let me go without anything. Today: same place, same cop. I did stop at the stop sign, and waited a couple of seconds because I saw him. Pulled me over, said that I didn't stop at the line. Well, I couldn't find my driver's license, thought it was in my purse, but it wasn't. didn't renew my registration, so it expired 6 weeks ago (Ive been just putting it off, which is dumb, because I have the money and now I have a $69 late fee). I have insurance, but I never bother to put the new card in the car. So I had nothing to give him except last year's registration, my name and DOB. Tried to remember my DL number, but I was 1 digit short. He checked everything, registration came back expired "I sent a check" He said well, 'checks can take a while". I know he remembered me, but asked me where I was going, etc. He let me go without any tickets. He said he was contemplating whether he should give me a warning. My answer "pleeeeaase". It was funny. I have ALWAYS gotten tickets, the cops were always so short and almost rude with me, so I was always short with them, so I was never able to sweet talk them. But ever since they ask where I'm going, and they find out I teach, and especially where I teach, everything changes. Is this common? Or Ive been just very lucky?
