Today’s planned blog post is being interrupted by a Note To Self.
I tend to roll on the law abiding side of life although I do occasionally speed. My natural inclination is to pay bills on time and carry insurance.
That is until I forget.
Like for three months I’ve been driving around with zero insurance. So on the side of the road in the setting sun I renewed my insurance by phone and politely accepted a ticket for a significant amount from a young officer. Because like really who is there to be mad at. Somehow we both missed responding to an email. So the vehicle I drive 5 days a week had no insurance. Not good at all.
That’s how easy it is to be forgetful. So I’m happy to have a ticket and not an accident that brought this info to light. Sometimes I miss the paper notices that sat on the counter and drove my OCD crazy so that I would be forced to deal with it. I do remember when I drove for part of month with no driver’s license. Shit happens sometimes so I am just taking the positive from this and trying not to beat myself up about the cost of the ticket.
I hope to avoid this again next year. While I sat there waiting for my ticket I put a reminder in my phone. Now I have two important things to remember in January 2019!
