I'm late for a funeral
While driving to her grandfather's funeral, Karen Green, of Portland, Ore., got lost -- twice.
"I was running late and was speeding to try to make up time when I was pulled over," she says. "I told the officer that I'd driven for four hours and was risking missing my grandpa's service because of getting lost."
Green also added that she realized it was still not okay to speed. "The officer told me I was lucky because he knew my story was true: He'd been one of the responding officers when my aunt called the authorities right after my grandfather passed away."
