The First Time I Got Pulled Over
Everyone gets pulled over by a cop eventually, but if you're one of the lucky ones that don't, well good for you. Authority figures are always intimidating, especially police officers and sheriffs. If you want to ruin your day deliberately, the best way to do it is get pulled over.
