I leave the Matador on Burnside after some drinks, closing the night with a shot of whiskey - I can drive and I'm under the limit, but intoxicated (You've been there).
I pull off onto Burns way too fast, and I instantly get pulled over. Grab my stuff, and freak out, thinking I'm going to jail for DUI.
Officer says "You sure did pull out there quick man, you gotta watch out, people die there all the time."
Myself - "I'm so sorry, I wasn't thinking clearly"
Officer - "Well, if you're sorry, then have a good night." And hands me my papers without looking at them.
And he lets me go. Thank you kind sir, thank you.
