As you all know, I got into a car accident last month. It was determined that I 'failed to yield' and therefore my fault and i was cited. Well, they gave me 14 days to respond to the ticket which i day, which they then gave me an extension. The woman had me sign a form telling me I had a month extention (the date was june 12) and i could come back in and reapply for another extension. Well, my mom made me call a few days ago to ask how much my ticket was for because she was gonna help me pay it off. The woman told me it was for a total of $478. That's exactly what she said. I hung up, told my mother and we went to the court house the next day to reapply for my extension. Well the clerks walks right in front of us with a big old cheeseburger and cant see us because "she is busy" so we leave and try to come back the next day. Well, my mom went in today to figure out something with her ticket when she asked about mine. She calls me to tell me that the woman cant find my file. Why?! BECAUSE SHE WAS FILING OUT A WARRANT FOR MY ARREST!! because apparently, I had not filed for an extension which she now claims was due JULY 4TH!! augh! so my mom helps me out nad pays for the ticket so they wont arrest me and calls me and asked me why i hadnt situated it. I told her that "3 days ago when i called and asked how much my ticket was, she NEVER once told me that I was already past due and that i would get a warrant!! " I will put this on my life that she never said I was past due!! So I get home from dropping the kids off and errands and catching a movie with my younger sister when i see my friend (who is our across the street neighbor) sitting and chatting with my mom. Well, she is just telling her about my ticket and then she starts blaming me in front of her that "I make so many mistakes and that she always has to fix them for me" and all i'm trying to do is defend myself by saying that "i was never told the dates" and my mom backed herself up by saying "they are the police, they dont have to tell you anything. it's your job to ask!!" and while everything was all freaking fine and dandy between me and my mom, my dad comes in and starts telling me to "Shut up idiot!" and making faces and goes on to tell me (in front of my friend) that "everything we give you, you always throw it away" and "you do everything wrong and nothing comes out right because of your stupid mistakes". so i'm in tears and i run up the stairs and i hear my mom saying "she always does things wrong and always blames everyone else but herself" and then my dad starts telling my friend stories about every single damn mistakes and things i've "put my parents through" since high school because he thinks i wasnt listening. (my parents have this thing that they obviously dont care about embarassing their daughter because if we start arguing in front of people he will always come up with something about the past to say and i just have to take it. but if i say ONE thing about them then all freaking hell breaks loose.) I know my parents have helped me out so much especially since my divorce and everything but i'm just so tired of always being blamed for everything that goes wrong. Yes, i will admite that I was wrong this time. I should have asked more questions. But all I was trying to tell my parents is that the police department here in our town is ALWAYS f***ing up and they asked me for proof because they didnt believe me. All I had to tell them was that "My police report! The cop who issued me a ticket spoke to a girl who worked with my sister who insisted that SHE was the passenger in my car, NOT my sister!!!" I DONT EVEN KNOW THE GIRL!!He made SOOOOO many mistakes on my police report from the dates and times, to the passengers, to the part that he said that my car WASNT towed from the scene when it was!!! And im sitting here trying to tell my parents that and they still tell me "im always wrong and youre whole life has been filled with mistakes and everythign we ever put in your hands, you lose". In front of my friend which is probably what pisses me off the most. What would you do? Sorry- just had to vent.
