So I went out of town for the night on Friday with Liz and Kelly... Driving along, minding our own business and we got pulled over. (Yes, it was in Wisconsin. Something about the cops in Wisconsin.) We had no idea what for because I wasn't speeding. Not even 56 mph. So he came to the window.
Where are you going? (A.ton)
Shopping for what? (scrapbook stuff...)
Isn't that pretty far to go for scrapbooking stuff? (no, we had to get away)
Where are you staying? (our hotel name)
Huh. I've never heard of that one.
Can I see your license and registration?
Are you still living at ....?
Well, Karen, the reason I pulled you over is because the light that illuminates your license plate is out.
Me: Uhhhh. Okay?
So when he went back to the car with my information, we burst out laughing. Seriously? I got pulled over for that?
After about ten minutes (waaaaay longer than usual, and with us girls pretty much incredulous the whole time) he came back and said
Well, when you get home, have someone take a look at that. Have a good weekend shopping!
So, folks, if you're planning any trips to (or through) Wisconsin, make sure the light that illuminates your license plate is working.
