The first time I got my driving license, it was in May 2007.
That’s when my mom was diagnosed with lung cancer.
I was 14 years old.
I got the first two years of my driving licenses in August 2008, the last two in September.
And I was driving to work in October 2008 when I noticed a sign that said “Driving while intoxicated is prohibited.”
I was like, “Whoa!
What are you talking about?”
The first thing I did was call my dad.
He was like “I can’t believe you got pulled over.
It’s so bad.
I just want you to go home.”
So I drove home.
I had a really bad day, and I didn’t know what to do.
My dad went out to pick up a couple of friends and was driving on the side of the road.
I had to go over and stop him to tell him what happened.
I ended up getting ticketed.
I drove back home and went back to the station, where I paid $250.
The ticket officer said, “You can’t get that ticket.”
So my dad was like I was stupid.
He’s a big trucker, so he didn’t understand why I had a ticket.
I went back and told him that I got the ticket, and he said, Oh yeah, that’s what happens in every single county in the state.
He was like the guy that drove that truck with me that was the cause of my accident.
He said, No, you can get the ticket now.
So I got a ticket and he let me drive away.
I was driving home from work and I was really nervous because I wasn’t in a hurry to go back home.
But I ended on a side street and saw a sign on the highway, saying “Do not drive.”
So I stopped, walked around the car, and then the police officer came up to me and he was like my driver’s license, the same one I got when I got out of high school.
He just told me to get the fuck out.
I didn’t get to go to the courthouse that day.
I got tickets for driving in the wrong lane, driving in an accident, speeding, and failing to wear a seat belt.
My license was suspended for two years, which was the last time I had any driving privileges.
So it was the worst time of my life.
I started getting really scared.
I couldn’t drive.
I’d be stopped by the police all the time and they would come and take my license away.
I felt so helpless.
I did my best to get my license back.
I tried to get in a taxi, but I had nowhere to get back to.
So, I called a lawyer and he put me on a flight to Seattle to get it reissued.
I actually had to take a bus from Portland to Seattle and back to Portland. I didn
