I'm sorry, OP. Maybe next time try not to speed or go over the limit. Just pay your ticket before it gets higher.
#12, if they're like most married couples they probably share a joint bank account, so they're both paying for it. However, I love how the husband made a scene to teach his wife a lesson (unless the cop specifically said he'd let her off with a warning if her record was clean).
#12 It is possible. Considering she was pleasant and apologetic during the ticket the officer was very likely to give her a warning for the speeding. For her husband, the officer could state that he was "interfering with the job and duties of a law enforcement officer". Telling a cop off is protected under the First Amendment, at least a few lawsuits have indicated as such, but it's all based on how the cop takes it. A few overreact and apparently arrest the individual, but all too often they would issue a ticket. If a kid was in the car as well, the cop could ticket him for "contributing to the delinquency of a minor".
"Made a scene to teach his wife a lesson". What kind of idiot takes the husband making fun of the cop as teaching his wife a lesson? I think your infering too much, they both were in the car and therefore both probably aware of what speed they were going. As for the comment the husband was just openning his dumb mouth and now they have to pay the ticket. Who cares who pays- they're married! Joint account or not, consequences affect them both.
And people wonder why divorce rates are so high, couples don't even trust each other or have any reasoning skills. Just look at the money. If a couple can't just put all of their money together if they love each other... Then clearly they have some issues with management or are prepared for the relationship to end, even if it's in 10 years. Married or not married, people need to work out those stupid issues and everyone would be happier!
How does having money together take away their rights to things they want? The only thing it's safer or is or a breakup. Living in the same home, eating the same food, paying the same bills, why would they possibly need different accounts? You still have the same amount of money, so putting it all in the same account(or obviously more for organizational purposes or safety if you like) only makes sense. It doesn't stop your mom or dad from occasionally getting what they want as individuals.
Next time tell him to shutup before all the stupid comes out.
Tell your husbabd that cops like McDonalds, not donuts. Some people!! Gosh. -_-'
Tell your husband to make an account here and start commenting. His idiotic sense of humour would fit right in.
