This last week I was working at the cannabis dispensary and the boss asked me to run a few orders out for delivery.
One of the regular delivery drivers did not show up for the task and the shop had a dozen orders ready to go when we opened for business.
I agreed reluctantly to the deliveries. I don’t particularly care about driving my automobile for work, because it gets the worst gas mileage. It also needs to have the AC equipment repaired. Regardless, I said sure to my boss when she asked me to make a few deliveries. I was on my way to the absolutely first delivery, when I had to run a red light. I was going the speed limit and the automobile in front of me swerved in a jiffy. In order to avoid the car, I had to run the light. Of course, I got a ticket in the mail from the traffic court, because they caught the move on camera. I was absolutely exasperated about the ticket and I told my boss all about it. I blamed the store and I blamed the guy who did not make it to the job that day. It was my fault I ran the light. I was in a hurry and not glad about the orders. I should have stopped at the light. I made an attempt to explain my case to the judge, even though she did not want to hear any excuses in the least. I got a ticket for $150 and I had to pay $40 for the court fees since the judge easily denied my request to have the ticket thrown out. The next time my boss has the wish to have someone help with deliveries, I’m going to politely say no.
