    NY red light ticket = $50. Gotta pay it or you can't renew registration.

    No shit. I pointed at the obvious cameras on a pole the other day. Hey it could be waaaaaaaaaay worse, my buddy's wife, (who lived here for ONE semester), got FIVE at that same spot.

    Apparently they don't just mail you a photo of that?

    Edit: I heard a good one about Issaquah PD recently. A (female) business owner in the development where Front Steet Market is called in that there was a belligerent, drugged up, vagrant camped across the door to their business refusing to move so they could open the store.

    Issaquah's finest turned up 90 minutes later.

    The police department is across the street from her business.

    Apparently there is some kind of $/hours dispute between the lower level cops and either higher ranks and/or the city. The cops prefered tactic in this dispute has been to respond to these kind of calls at snails pace.

    Can ex-gf's qualify in this thread? I was with the nut for almost 7 years. Almost married her...

    Anywho, fly back to home town, rent a convertible, go tubing on a nearby river. Have a wonderful afternoon, think about how nice a longer day would be with more rowdy water. Return the next day, do the section above that with rental kayaks that are stashed in the convertible. Also brought the gf's car and left it at the bottom. Got our asses kicked. Halfway down, she turns to me and says, "How are we getting back to the convertible?" "With your car." Silence.

    I suppose it differs by county. After a co-worker had a run-in in San Mateo with one, we carefully examined the ticket, and it was from a private vendor. He never paid, and he never got in trouble. I know people that plead it down, and there are some shady lawyers around that are pretty good at making them go away. In CA, I worry more about the points and insurance.

    We have a silverware drawer approximately 20 inches from the butter plate that sits next to the toaster. The drawer contains all the things that you would think would be in there. Especially butter knives that work exceptionally well to put butter on toast. About 50% of the time she grabs a fork to put butter on her toast. Never a spoon. Sometimes a butter knife, so it's not random or 30% of the time there would be a fucking spoon on the butter plate when I make toast in the morning. I don't understand what part of her brain says " pick the fork, that is the perfect fucking utensil to not spread butter with"

    We have an apartment in Issaquah, (Seattle suburb), now, so my wife takes the Golf R and drives over a big lane barrier thing to the tune of $2500 worth of 2 rims, tires, alignment, etc.

    She gets some mail from the city and opens it up, sees a picture of the Golf and a nice $140 fine, and says "How do they know it's me?" She gets a second letter like that a day later.

    She is great, yada, yada, yada, but WTF?

    What else you guys got?
    She is punishing you for making her live in an apartment in Issaquah.

    I love you. You were right. I'll fix it. Oooh look, (insert distracting gift here)!

    Any combination of the above will fix most situations.

    At least that photo ticket didn't have a picture of her giving some dude a hummer while he is driving too fast in that Golf R.

    As my rant contributed to the start of this thread, I would like to point out that I am utterly amazed by my wife's dexterity and ability to multitask, but the goggle thing just makes me crazy. I made the mistake of buying some Smiths with multiple lenses for her birthday last year. The lens in my opinion is fairly easy to change, but apparently it's not easy for her. Its compounded by the fact that if the sun comes out or goes behind a cloud, she needs to change the lens. But yet, before it was illegal to text and drive, my wife could drive a car with her left leg sticking out the window, phone in her left hand, steer and accelerate with her right knee and foot, while looking for a nail file in the glove compartment. I'm pretty much limited to driving and changing radio stations.

    So yes, I've learned to learned to change goggle lenses, and let her multitask away on other stuff. And I hope this doesn't come off as bragging, but I have gotten very fucking good at changing Smith lenses. In fact I will go up against any of you maggots in a speed contest, as long as I don't have to change the radio station while I'm doing it.

    I won't get in to any stories of my wife, but let's just say she can compete with most of the stories posted here. My goal is to challenge my 3 year old daughter in every way possible to make sure that she takes the time to think through every situation she's in, and hope the cycle is broken. I've had this discussion with a good friend of mine, and his 15 year old daughter is far better at navigating day to day life than his wife is.
    All I want is to be hardcore.

    There could be some twisted logic to this depending on how many clean knifes there are in the drawer compared to forks or spoons. A lot of times I stir my coffee with a fork or knife since there tends to be more clean forks and knifes in the drawer then spoons. My girl is always asking why I don't use a spoon and I tell her it's to keep an even amount of clean utensils available in the drawer.
