I'm so glad that I made it through!
I was at my friend's house and I had a couple of drinks - I wasn't alright to drive (more tired than drunk at this point) so I took her bike home. Within a block of my house, I see that my shadow is blinking left then right then back again. I hear a lady's voice on an intercom say
"dismount your bike!"
I do what the voice says.

A lady cop comes out and says "Without pulling out your wallet, you have an ID?" I say "I do" but do my hand goes to my back pocket (out of habit). She says
"I asked you not to pull out your ID! It's in your back left pocket?"
Yes, I say. She tells me to follow a pen around and asks me if I have been drinking. I tell her that I have had a few beers and that I shouldn't drive after having even one. She asks me my address and my social, I tell her "1429 Adams and 621-__-____".
She asks me again, I give the same answer.
She says "I pulled you over 'cause you don't have a back light" -
I point out that I do; she says that she couldn't see it because it was blocked by the tire and that I could be run over by a drunk person.
"Do you have any tattoos?" she asks,
I say No and proceed to show her that I have none
"that won't be necessary" she says.
Then she makes note that I'm dressed in black and asks
"Have you ever been arrested before?" I say no (because I haven't).

She tells me that taking a bike is the wise choice and that I shouldn't be behind the wheel of a car - where I could hurt someone.
"I'm not going to write you a ticket", she says. "You made the right choice". "How long will it take you to get home?" I say less than a minute, would you like me to walk my bike?" I ask
"however you can get home fastest" she says.

why the fuck would she need to know if you have any tattoos? if it's for gang affiliation then that's ridiculous because although you are a tough looking dude, you are definitely not in a gang...nice story, glad you made it out of there alive and unticketed

do you have a scent that attracts odd things to happen to you?
