“ The realization
Why is it so wrong for 2 broken people to make a whole?
Today was supposed to be my only day off this week. But I just got called into work. Kinda feel like crying.
Driving in Rockport VIA south st, going to drop Sarah off. Drive by 2 Ropo-popo, just continue on. One starts to follow me. Kinda just like “Fuck”. Pull down Sarah’s st, he slow down, and then continues.
Drop Sarah off, say goodnight, pull out on the main road again, same cop comes down going the opposite way. Shrug it off.
Mind you, I always obey the traffic laws due to the fact I went to drivers re-education course, and if I get another mark on my record within the next 2 years, I need to go back.
Continue to drive, going 5mph UNDER the speed limit at this point. Every corner I take I see him poking the nose of his car out of the stop signs. He backs off right as I’m on the road that connects to Nugent stretch, and Gloucester— right out of his jurisdiction.
Get all way the way down Nugent, right before Gloucester, then all of a sudden, I see mister cop BOMBING towards me. Pulls me over. I could have literally spit over the Gloucester line.
"License and Reg—I pulled you over because my computer wouldn’t say if you had a license."
"Yeah… this happens all the time, I know, you ran my name and all that came up was my social security number."
Runs my license number. Everything checks out “You should really go to the RMV and get issued a new license number so this doesn’t happen anymore.”
It took every fiber of my being to look at him and say “Fuck no, I KNOW I’m a red flag. I’d MUCH rather just not change it at ALL and keep getting pulled over, than to be targeted as a red flag.”
"Buckle up and have a safe fourth of July Ma’am"
"Yup, you too."
I was born in the wrong time period. I should have been born in the far future when everyone has the rights they fucking deserve.
I feel it’s better to be born into the revolution where we get the opportunity to help make history and change the world.
