The cop agreed to waive the speeding ticket

I was on my way home from an air conditioner repair.

I was on call that weekend and I was on a late night repair.

It was 2 in the morning when I was on my way home. The police officer was sitting on the interstate and I was traveling at a fast rate of speed. When I saw the officer, it was already too late. He clocked me going 81 miles an hour in a 65 mph Zone. I was pretty aggravated that the cop pulled me over, especially since I was in my work truck. Clearly I was working at the time. The police officer asked me where I was going in a hurry and I told him that I was on my way home. He questioned where I was coming from and why I was working so late on a Friday night. The officer was going to give me a $300 ticket for speeding. I asked the officer if he could give me a warning. I honestly didn’t know if the guy would do that, but I thought it was worth a shot. The police officer said he would do something even better. He gave me his address. He told me that he could use a tune-up on the heat pump and air conditioner in his home. If I did the work for free the next day, then the officer would rip up the ticket and throw it away. It was pretty much blackmail, but I wasn’t going to argue. It only took an hour of my time to complete the tune up and it would have taken a lot more time to earn enough money to pay for the speeding ticket. I’m going to have to keep my eyes out for that guy.
