And I passed! W00t! Apparently the officer took a dim view of me coming the wrong way out of a one way street. But he was a gentleman about it and after pulling me out of my car and watching my eyes follow his finger, he sent me on my merry way.

My excitement for the night I did get to sample some dozen IPAs and win some cash in a poker game. A fun night all around

Nice...

I just looked at your Location and I'm happy to know that I'm not in NJ.

I would hate you coming down the wrong way in a one-way and killing my family because you wanted to sample "some dozen IPA's"... play some games and drive home.

I guess it's no worse than the jackasses who think they can eat a bowl of cereal on the 110 in traffic at 60mph.

Wow! That's a pretty harsh line to take. Maybe your tolerance is lower but, most of the "samples" I have taken were 1 or 2 ounces thus, "some dozen" would equate to a beer or two.

Personally, I think the cop pulled him over for driving an MGB/AH/Fiat like car figuring he MUST be drunk to drive that.

Yeah I was careening down a one way street, ricocheting off cars and children, completely hammered, but was able to convince the nice police officer to let me go.

I had stopped drinking beer and switched to water and coffee quite a while before leaving, which is why I *wasn't* drunk and *didn't* get thrown in jail by the cop.

I went the wrong way down the street because it was 1am and I'm unfamiliar with the area. I had no idea it was one way until the cop told me.

But thanks for assuming I live to play games and go out drunk and mow down pedestrians.

Actually he saw my driving cap and thought it was ridiculous enough to warrant a stop

It's a '78 Triumph Spitfire, for the record.

So sorry. But, they do all look the same "careening down a one way street, ricocheting off cars and children" at what was it? 1 a.m.?

Are you guys kidding, that cop lifted up his little car with one hand, turned it the right direction and then pulled him from it for the sobriety test. I had bigger hotwheels in my collection as a kid.

Disclaimer: I am the owner of a 1980 MGB and have personally lifted one end of the damned thing to get it out of a tight spot.
