slight improvement but cops involved

an intense but great shift at work...driving home close to midnight in my suburb...last set of lights turning orange at our local shops...not a car in site...i keep going...then see the cop car at the lights as my light turns red before my arse crosses the line...cue flashing lights & pissed off twenty year old girl's how it pans out:
cop: do you know why you have been pulled over?
me : yes
cop: do you have anything to say? note grumpiness & flashlight in my window...obviously her nightshift just started
me: no...i get it...i did the wrong thing...i am a midwife & i am on my way home from work & i am tired
cop: where do you work?
me: ******
cop: oh, my mother's a midwife....note half smile & more gentle attitude.....thinking she has heard about all the shit we deal with!!
cop: ok don't do it again...i saw her smile
me: ok thanks see ya...

could not believe my luck....she softened. she was only 20 i am sure....but a cranky know, all hard arse cop attitude fresh out of rookie school... i was so tired, i couldn't have cared less if she fined me. i have had 1 speeding ticket my whole life & no other cop involvement, so i am no frequent flyer.
i couldn't even be bothered to tell her my bladder was up to my eyeballs & my uterus felt like i had removed it & it was dragging behind the car hitting the road...just couldn't be bothered....
