Speeding Ticket=cash in my pocket=more thread!

Let me explain..My husband, we will call him Rich, (I love this man very much), any way I digress. He has a habit of driving fast. We made a deal quite awhile back because I didn't think it was fair he got to spend money paying fines and speeding tickets. I mean if he was willing and sometimes even appeared eager to give money to such as a good cause as our government. Surely he should be so eager to give it to me. Right? Ok the deal was that if he got anymore tickets or fines that I would get at least equal to what the fine or court costs were. Maybe double if I was feeling entitled. We recently purchased a new car..lo and behold my dear hubby comes home after working 12 hours running a train at 1:30 am. He calls me and tells me he is on the way home with a cop behind him. I'm thinking he is driving a little slower because there is a cop behind him..I am thinking wrong..The cop is behind him because he is already pulled over. He got popped doing 60 in a 40. Here is his excuse..1:30 at night nobody around should be a free for all..I just smiled and said CHA CHING!!!! I know this has nothing to do with crocheting, but in a way it does..after fines, court cost, payment for class so insurance won't go up, I am thinking I am going to get quite a bit of thread!!!

What can I say ... SWWWEEETTT!!
I couldn't make a deal like that with Larry, I'm always reminding him the speed up the limit is 65 not 55 LOL -- Oh well..
Maybe next time I come down I will ask Rich for a ride in his new car, and to show me how fast it can go. What else is a sister for?

Love ya

I struck a similar deal with my hubby. Everytime he buys a chainsaw (or parts for one) I get to buy more yarn. Unfortunately I lost out on the deal because he hasn't bought anything else. lol. congrats! Enjoy your cash.
