Time for your buddy MC to turn over a new leaf and make those resolutions a reality. Over the past year, I’ve gotten a number of comments about how I unfairly cite people because I’m just plain mean, or a bully, or I was bullied in high school, or I’ve a Napoleon complex, or a small penis, or insecurities, or some other such nonsense.
I’m going to treat every stop in a new light. I will think of the driver’s perspective and how hard their lives may be right now. I will not treat the Vehicle Code as some sort of rule book drivers should follow, but as more of a guideline. After all, the driver could very well have a reason for doing whatever it is they were doing. I need to have the kind of respect for my fellow man that allows me to put myself in their shoes and feel what they do. It can’t be easy being stopped by a guy like me. It must be intimidating what with the gun and all, not to mention the leather jacket and those stupid ass aviator sunglasses.
From this moment forward, 2010 will be the Year of Understanding for MC. I will embrace the softer, more liberal approach to life. I will attempt to connect with the drivers on an emotional level and try to truly ascertain the reasons behind why they were violating the law. I will refuse to bow to the pressure of the community to make their streets safer at the cost of potential financial woes inflicted upon the unsuspecting driving public.
You, the motoring public in and about the state of CA, are now my most valued contacts. I will let you talk ad nauseam about your personal injustices and how your day has been irrevocably turned on its ear because I had the audacity to stop you for a minor infraction. As a matter of fact, I apologize in advance for my obvious disdain for you, your timetable and your apparent lack of ability to manage your time. I don’t know what I was thinking. If you could see your way clear to forgive me my former transgressions, I promise to make this a better year for all of us.
P.S. You know I’m fucking with you, right?
