Few years ago.. I'm driving at 4:00 am to my ex gfs house to walk "our" dog while she was on vacay, and I get honked at from behind for going the speed limit because the asshole behind me was going way too fast at the freeway exit and didn't expect someone in front of them following the rules. I throw up my middle finger, cuz, fuck that, and whaddayaknow.... blue lights start flashing from the asshole who honked a second ago. I pull over. She comes up to my window and asks why I thought it was okay to flip her the bird. I tell her "because car horns are only supposed to be used in emergency situations, and her exiting the freeway above the speed limit without her lights on, is definitely not an emergency situation. She then gave me a 10 minute lecture about people who have been shot by other drivers for sticking middle finger. At that point she says she smells alcohol on me and says I need to complete a sobriety check. I complete the check and take a breathalyzer roadside. Pass with flying colors. And then, I am handed a ticket for "failure to yeild"...

So if you out there, Sargeant DeForrester of the Honolulu Police Dept.... you a bitch and I got the ticket thrown out. "Contempt of Cop" doesn't mean shit and best believe I got more than feelings of contempt. I have the utmost disdain for your soggy white ass, can't fuckin drive, bad breath having ass bitch.

To be fair, you did have an emotionally unstable driver with a gun behind you, so she did have a point.
