So I was looking at some old threads on here and they got me thinking. One in particular about whether cops give nurses tickets. So what do you think? Do nurses receive special treatment when people know you are a nurse? Any personal experience with this subject you want to share?
I have two stories both similar and different at the same time. I was once pulled over after a workout. I had on teeny shorts and shirt and probably definitely looked a hot mess. So I was pulled over for speeding going 6 mph over. I was asked to step out of my car and proceeded to be searched. Officer stated I was being searched because he smelled marijuana. I don't smoke and I don't know how he could have possibly smelled anything besides my sweaty nastiness. But anyways search concluded and officer tickets me for speeding as he has nothing else to charge me with.
Shortly after this I was again pulled over for speeding in the same vehicle. ( Yes I know I have a lead foot lol) This time I was in scrubs
and had my name tag hanging on my rearview mirror. I also was going about 15 over not 6 as I was prior. The cop didn't even ask where I was going. Proceeded to give me a verbal warning and then let me on my way.
Now I don't know if this has anything to do with me being an obvious nurse the second stop vs the first. Or whether one cop was just nicer than the other. But it does make me wonder...
Any nurses care to share their experiences, opinions,etc??
