That sucks man but in the grand scheme of things not that big of a deal... you're still happily married (I assume) with a roof over your head, a solid job, and (again, I assume) your health... a rough month is a rough month and not too bad considering you have hundreds of months in your lifetime...

How many us have had tickets for speeding because we were being tailgated??

True. That is a valid point, but not to be sexist and please don't take this the wrong way. Most women freak out a little more than men do when things like this happen. When you get nervous or scared it is hard to think of a good solution when something like this is happening. I mean it might have been different if it was something less intimidating than a hummer. Just put yourself in her shoes and think about it.

I agree... I'm not easily intimidated but I do agree women tend to freak out more (part of the reason I'm on here not out with the girls ;-))....

But if you think she overreacted 'cause she's a woman why call out the entire forum of MEN?

Your wife will hopefully learn from this. They will make payment arrangements with her...When is the court date? Probably sometime in December-January, because they almost always give a long ass time before the court date, then will even work with you and make her pay like $50 a month or so.

When someone is tailgating me, I will drive 5 under the speed limit until they pass me. Speeding up because of a tailgater won't impress a traffic cop.

Sorry guys been busy lately... Yeah she could of slowed down, I would have. I'm not a perfect driver and I've had my tickets, she is FOR SURE not the best driver and hasn't had a ticket.

She did deserve it but the location of the 25 mph zone is stupid. right off the off ramp, going downhill. NO ONE does 25 there. wrong place wrong time, no biggie.

As far as roommates go. They will be packing their shit when they get home. They put my KING size blanket over my 4 month old german shepards cage. when my wife got home to let the dogs out, she had flipped her water bowl and was laying in it and still panting... NOT OK.

Appreciate the words of advice though.
