Police Friend Update:

Today the cop who pulled me over (don't remember?) came into my Starbucks. His name is Scotty, and apparently, I will never be free of my "crime" because he is a regular at my store. Fantastic. This is how the conversation went down:

Scotty: "Well heellooo..."
Sharelle: "Hi there. I have to tell you, I wasn't really looking foward to this encounter"
Scotty: "Yah...AWKWARD" (as he turns his head away and laughs at me)

While I am making his drink:

Scotty: "Well is speeding your biggest crime?"
Sharelle: "Ya probably"
Scotty: "I'd say you are a pretty good person then"

So maybe the man was afraid of the Super Troopers situation, his drink being screwed up or something, but he was very gracious. I feel that perhaps my relationship with "Scotty" may not be ruined forever. I actually even confessed all and told him I was coming from a working at a school.

He went on to tell me that when he patrols school zones, a good 70% of the people he pulls over are teachers. Wow. So apparently, although I am an awful human being who sped in a school zone, my future colleagues are just as bad. One thing is for sure, this man has pushed me to want to never speed in a school zone again. I guess he is good at his job.
