11:36pm: As we all know I've been waiting for my new bank card to arrive, I checked the letterbox when I got home from Mrs S's, but no luck, so I was most pleased when the landlord's wife came later in the afternoon with a letter for me! At least until I opened it.

It was a speeding ticket! From last Tuesday! Fuck! I hadn't realised that in my rush to get to work on time I'd gone 50kms in a school zone. That was 10km over the speed limit!

FUCK! I already had and paid that parking ticket I got on that day, but a $189 speeding ticket?! I may as well not have turned up to work! I make $22 an hour and I worked for four hours that day...which if my maths is halfway decent means I'm out of pocket $100!

And just to rub salt in the wound, the time of the speeding ticket was 9:23am, literally seven minutes before the school zone ends! If I had have been actually late I would have been better off! In fact I would have been going 20kms under the normal speed limit of that road!

I was going to suck it up and pay it, as painful as it is, when I noticed that on the back you could apply for leniency if you have a clean driving record - which I do - although it also seemed to suggest that wasn't possible if it was a school zone related fine, it wasn't really clear. The letter also said that less than 4% of applications succeed. But [personal profile] nashira and her Nan said to me over Facebook I might as well give it a go.

Seriously, though, I hope I have some good luck here, I know a speeding fine is supposed to be expensive to stop you from doing it, but when you make minimum wage like me it's a total kick in the face. Not to mention a bit unfair, if kids are still going to school at 9:23 they're running pretty bloody late.

Anyway, aside from that I don't have much else to say except I did pop over to the Disability Service that I'm employed through now to drop off my timesheet and enquire about possibly getting more hours. They're gonna look into what the have and get back to me, I wonder if I'll be able to do any of them, working as a carer is quite hard work and a lot of responsibility so...

And, it's coming up on midnight so I better head off, I keep undersleeping, it's no good for me, dang it!

So I shall say, goodnight!
