i went through a stop sign without stopping whilst driving today, and just my luck, there was a cop waiting on the other side.
i got landed with a $240 fine :(

the irony of the situation? i was just coming from one library (and going to another one), where i had borrowed this book (among others) called getting rich for dummies. hrmph.

someone, i don't think getting a $240 on the spot fine is part of the strategy for getting rich :\
it certainly makes me fit the "dummie" title though. heh.

am really quite pissed off about it, but it was my fault, and i can't change it, so all i can do is pay the blasted fine, and then pay more attention in future. i've had my license for 5 years and this is my first fine, so i suppose it really could be worse. no point in being too annoyed about it now, although it sucks to just throw so much money away like that :(

better start paying attention to that getting rich book, i think.

Aww, but lucky it was your first fine during 5 years! I'm sure if I ever get a license & a car, I bet I'll get at least 10 fines during 5 years! Hehe
But that title of the book, "Getting rich for dummies" sounds interesting, especially because I'm good at spending money... (Well all books with "Getting rich ..." in the title sound interesting)

hehe ;)
it's actually a decent book, although a lot of it is about investment strategies and planning for the long term (such as after retirement)... i kinda wanted something that gave tips on how to save money and stuff -- although i did get some others that are like that.
but i'm sure you'll be fine driving, when you do get your license, don't worry :)
