Speed Demon

For work today we went to a river boat cruise on the St. Croix river. It was an enjoyable time, even if the weather was a bit cold and windy. The leaves were colorful, and the boat had an enclosed deck that was nice and warm.

It was quite a hike to get from downtown out to Stillwater for the cruise, so we took a number of cars and caravan'd out there. All the cars left at different times, so the group trickled in over ~15 minutes. Eventually most people got on the boat and a few of us with the tickets waited around for the last car to arrive.

They eventually showed up, and it turned out that the reason they were so late was not because they had left last (which they had), but because the driver had gotten a speeding ticket along the way!

Even more embarrassing was the fact that the car was packed with co-workers, who all got to witness the ticket firsthand. Whoops.
