Call Back Next Week

I called the Montgomery Municipal Court yesterday morning shortly after 8am, when it opens. I spoke to the 'mail-lady'. She found my letter, but said she couldn't tell me if it was enough to clear the ticket or not. I asked her when she'd know. She told me I had until August 8th (the court date) and insinuated I shouldn't keep bothering her about it. I tried to make her understand that I didn't want to wait until that late to find out, because it would be too late to do anything about it by then.

Unless you've had your license suspended, you don't understand the anxiety having an outstanding traffic violation causes. I had my license suspended once before, although it was later ruled a clerical error because I submitted my payment before the court date. I had to talk to high-ranking officials to get my record cleared. It was very nerve-wracking. I don't want to have to do that again.

She couldn't get my point though, and ended the call by asking me to 'call back next week'. Grrrr.
