Excuse Me Officer

Driving home from work last night I stopped into the grocery store to pick up a couple of things.  My shift ends at 7pm and it takes me about 30 mins to get home.  Normally I'm in no hurry, but Glee starts at 8pm, and I CAN"T miss it.  Of course I end up in the slow line, and it's driving me crazy.

So I leave the store, it's 7:30 and I need to hurry up. I decided to take the highway home to try to avoid city traffic.  I am driving fairly fast when I see those dreaded flashing lights behind me, shit, I look down at my speed, 20 over but I've already hit the brakes.

I see a young male cop coming up to the window, maybe if I play cute......

"License and registration" he's all business.

I hand it over.

"Do you know why I pulled you over"

"I was going a little to fast, I apologize officer" and give him my best smile. He's actually really cute!

"A little fast, try 28 km over the speed limit. AND your license plate is expired" SHIT

"Where were you going in such a hurry" he asks

I think about it and decide to be honest - and play the sympathy card

"I was rushing home to watch glee. I've had a horrible day (not true) and my mind was on work and I didn't notice how fast I was going, I'm really sorry"

"Where do you work?"

"At the hospital, I'm a RN in the emerg department" No wedding ring I notice.

He blows out a breath and I look up innocently through my lashes. Please please please.

"I don't tag nurses, especially emerg nurses, never know when we'll need you" he smirks at me

OMG he's going to let me go! "Thank you so much officer"

"Slow down, I  won' be so nice the next time. And get your plates renewed, don't let me catch you driving around with these plates. I'm really giving you a break here"

"I know, I'll get them renewed tomorrow. Thank you soooo much"

" Have a good night" he says as he's walking away.

I sit there and wait for a minute . He was really cute and was very nice to me.  Maybe I should have asked him for his name or number....
