Not guilty...

So I went to court and sat. And sat and sat and sat and sat. My neck hurt, I sat. I left for a few minutes and fed the meter. It was VERY hot. In the hundreds this week
Long story short, I was so nervous and I was there for hours, but right before lunch, they called my name and I walked forward. I explained how I could/would not have possibly littered. To my great surprise they dismissed it. (Yay!)
I'm thrilled that I don't have to pay a fine for something I didn't do but what a colossal waste of every one's time.

Have you ever been obligated to sit through something you felt was an utter waste of time?

Yay Lindsay, I know how anxious you were about this and I am so glad it was resolved in your favour. Still, it does suck you had to sit there for all that time over something you didn't do. Thanks also for your comment on my blog, I was feeling really down. Your sweet words really did make me feel better...Love you.

Good for you, Lindsay. I think I've heard that if you do show up for court for something like this, they usually dismiss the charge. When you don't show up, they send you an outrages bill.

I'm glad it all worked out!

Phew, what a relief.

Yay! A free woman. But what a nuisance that you had to turn up and worry about it :(

Well, I was starting to get worried that you'd been thrown in the slammer. After all, that post said court was Thursday and then you left us hanging until Sunday? Building suspense, were you? LOL
Glad they dismissed the charges, surprised but glad! =)

I read your previous post and wow, that whole situation does sound ridiculous!

I wonder how your mail ended up in a stranger's rubbish bag, THAT is the disturbing part, since obviously it had identifying info!
