I hate it when I think of things I "should have" said to get out of the ticket. When he asked me if I knew why he pulled me over, I should've said "because my headlight is out?" He would've said "no speeding". I would've said "It's 35mph here, right?" Anyway it would've given me an opportunity to appear at least halfway attentive.
I should be able to either get out of the ticket or get it reduced. I have nothing on my driving record. They've got nothing on me, brother sir.
I'm going to drown my troubles in the Mercury's delicious gin & tonics tonight.
