Please pardon my ignorance, but I just want to be sure.|
Awhile back I made a post that mentioned a traffic ticket I received. At first I was all ready to pay whatever I had to pay, but later that day when I drove back by where I got pulled over, I noticed that there are absolutely no signs saying I couldn't turn left at that intersection, which is what I got the ticket for. So I took a picture.
My court date was scheduled for 8:30am on the 21st, which is this Thursday. Normally that'd be great, as I have Thursdays off, but I'm a personal assistant and we have a brand new Cardiovascular Center going live this week, and my boss really needs me to be here. But when I called to reschedule my court date (both the officer and I have one chance to reschedule, and must do it at least 48 hours beforehand), I was told it had already been "adjourned to the 28th." I know what "adjourned" means, but does that mean that the officer is the one who did it, using up his one chance to reschedule?
Also, my brother's wedding was this past weekend, for which I was the photographer. A distant cousin of mine (who happens to be closer to my brother than the rest of our cousins) was one of the groomsmen, and won't stop bugging me via Myspace for photos from the wedding. I've already told him politely that he'll have to talk to my brother and SIL about that, as they're their photos, and he replied saying something like, "Well I plan on buying a CD of them from you, I just want ones of me from the reception." How can I get through his thick head that just because I'm not a "professional" that doesn't mean I won't be handling this in a professional manner? My brother and SIL (Nic and Tonya) won't be back from their honeymoon until next week, and I really don't want to have to keep telling him that he can't have any photos until Nic and Tonya see them, decide what ones they want, and who all they want to send them to.
