Act like you care

The entire family was on our way home from a family reunion in Philadelphia, MS back to Florida. Hubby mentioned to me that we should go a different way on our way back. I said that we should stick to the way we knew, but after he kept asking like a little kid, I went on and agreed to it. Since I had never been this way, hubby got all macho saying that he knew where he was going and that he had been that way before some time way before we got married. Ever so often I would say to hubby that he needed to break his speed down, and at times he just acted like he didn't hear me, whereas other times, he would exclaim that he got this.

So we get in Washington County, AL and hubby is going around this curve like he owns the road, when, on the other side of the road driving in the opposite direction, was a highway patrol or a state trooper. Hubby sees the cop turn around at the top of the hill and says, "Uh-oh, I think he is coming for me." Hubby reduces his speed and then pulls over. Mr. Cop tells hubby that he (the cop) clocked hubby at 76 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone, and then issues hubby a ticket.  I was not happy because I kept telling to slow down, and he had to get a ticket to slow down.

After we got home, I looked online to see how much the ticket cost....a freaking 190 dollars! I asked hubby if he just has 190 dollars laying around and could just easily give it away so freely like a speeding ticket. He asked me when was I going to let it go.....it wasn't even a whole week yet.....and I told him that I wasn't going to let it go no time soon, because this is money coming out of our pockets to pay for an unnecessary speeding ticket that I tried to warn him about. And he acted like he didn't even care, he didn't say he was sorry, he didn't ask what could he do to make it up to me, he didn't ask what he could do extra...NOTHING, and I guess that was my pissed-off moment. I'll holla at you all later.
