I never thought I would see it happen...

...but I did! Back in August - one of my "Happiness is" posts was about how it would make me happy to see a tailgating, weaving, speeding car get pulled over. IT HAPPENED! Just this past Saturday! I was headed across the Tappan Zee Bridge and there was this annoying BMW on my tail. I was in the middle lane, exceeding the speed limit but not overly so - after all we were on a bridge (not my favorite thing) and the Tappan Zee to boot. I felt like saying to the driver "Dude, I'm in the middle lane here. You want to speed more, move to the left land and harass them." But, I just held my course, he eventually did his thing, weaving in and out and left me far behind. A few minutes/miles later, what to my wondering eyes did appear - but Mr. BMW (he had distinctive plates too) pulled over to the side in front of a police man with lights flashing. I cheered. My faith in the concept that people got their just desserts was renewed.

I've felt the same way too, but haven't seen the just desserts yet. Still waiting.

Yay! I am living vicariously through this post.
