Speaking of tickets: I had just moved to Indianapolis. (the forum somehow deleted this part of the story) I had just started a new job and woke up in the morning to find out I had lost my voice. Without any way to call in, I decided to go to work and try to pantomime my situation to my boss, and go from there. So I get ready, and just as I pull into the street, I see a city cop fly up behind me. I thought it was odd, since I had just left my house, but he had plenty of room to pull around me, then his flashers came on, so I pulled over. The cop came up to the window, shouting "Why'd you run from me?! You're lucky; I could have opened fire!" I was shocked, but I had lost my voice, so I was totally unable to communicate verbally. Trying to pantomime that I needed a pen or pencil, the cop thought I was being a smartass, and wrote me a ticket for speeding (which I could not have been, seeing as how I had only just pulled away from the curb). I think I must have been mistaken for another person.
