Today is Friday, and so it's time to tell you a tale of woe, angst, or general frustration, by linking up with my BFF MiMi for her weekly meme: F BOMB FRIDAY! After you read mine, head on over to France, and link up yourself!
On Wednesday, Roon and I were going out for a romantic dinner (with kids in tow) to honor our anniversary. Since we had celebrated last week, we basically used our actual anniversary as an excuse to not have to cook/eat what I had cooked. First, we had to stop off at the store for a quick errand.
Walmart is right off a highway exit. Technically, you have to break the law to get to it that way, by crossing over double white lines to get into the turn lane in time. Some people would get off an earlier exit to avoid this problem, but most do not. Roon is one, who does not.
On the way to the store, and as Roon prepared to exit, he noticed several patrolmen, so he decided to play it safe, and not switch lanes until he was beyond the double white lines.
As he exited, there was a police-person directly to our right. He maintained a legal speed limit, as he passed the patrol car. Slowly, the car began to drift into our lane. Roon sped up to try to get past the car. As he does, the patrol-person drifted further and further into our lane. Almost hits us.
As Roon sped up fast enough to pass the renegade cop, I look over and see that this policewoman was on her cell phone.
Apparently she had not signed Oprah's "No Phone Zone" pledge...
