As I write this update...I'm feeling the horrible pain of having to pay a $200 fine for walking across the street when the red hand told me to "halt or the cops will give you a freakin' ticket." I'm surprised that red hand wasn't flashing it's middle finger at me, when out of nowhere, a cop on a motorcycle stops me as I finish crossing and writes me a ticket. "Driver's license please!" he said, staring suspiciously at my dog.
"Is that your dog?", he asked. "does he realize his owner is putting his life in danger by running a red light?"
"Is my dog getting a ticket too?" I asked the cop as he eagerly scrawled my citation. This is crappy luck for a person who lived in New York City where, no matter what color the light was-- a sea of humans cross the street kicking and punching the cars that get in their way. In San Diego, I always thought people who were standing on the corner waiting for the light to change were hookers masquerading as pedestrians.
Have you ever received a jaywalking ticket? Like me, did you think about all the stuff you could have bought with your money instead of paying that hefty fine? Well...if you're planning on coming to our meetup THIS SATURDAY, you can get some "ticket therapy". Just bring your jaywalking ticket to the door and you'll get a FREE TICKET to our OPEN BAR COMEDY SHOW and DANCE PARTY worth $50 bucks!! Drink away your sorrows at our unlimited drinks bar...laugh away your hostility for cops who write jaywalking tickets during the comedy show starring Comedy Central's Jon Shefsky & Laurie Kilmartin and dance away the urge to kick yourself in the ass for not waiting for the light!
DON"T WORRY....If you never had a jaywalking ticket, you can still get in for 1/2 price if you buy your ticket on line here: use the promotional code: DWS to get 1/2 price tix
