David2 and I were driving along Nepean highway when he got pulled over by a motorcycle cop.
He was driving without a seatbelt. He drove away with a $237 fine and the loss of 3 demerit points. (Learner drivers only have 5 points.) He was gutted, but I have to admit that I was torn between feeling sorry for him and knowing that it was totally his own stupid fault. He has a nasty habit of getting into the car and not automatically putting his belt on and I’m constantly reminding him.
I then felt very sorry for me when I realised that because he’d quit his job at the local fruit shop a week or so ago it was I who would be footing the bill until he scraped the money together to pay me back.
