In the mail yesterday.....G-man got a $125 ticket for speeding. Apparently on his way home from his mom's a few weeks ago, a camera caught him going 38 in a 25 (he was in DC). So this lovely ticket, complete with a picture of his car, and a close up of his license plate arrive.
$125 is due by 4/7, and if received afterward....the fine doubles.
This is not the first ticket he has gotten. I think this makes 3 in the past 2 years. Plus a car accident. I am not a happy camper.
However, I am not worried about the money. I know where it is coming from.
See, we agreed that part of our overtime money was going to replenish his "boat" money (we drained that account when we got my car). Next week I had planned on transferring $200 from the OT account to the Boat account.
Now....$125 will get transferred to our checking account to pay the fine, and $75 will go to the Boat.
Too bad...you screwed up....you get your play money taken away.
At least we had it. It won't effect the budget at all. I am just annoyed that THIS is what our hard earned money is paying for. I may make him write the check out....let him pay for his mistake.
