Speaking of speeding, my ex-husband once came home from a road trip, and he was laughing his head off as he got out of his car. "What's so funny?" I asked. Still chuckling, he handed me a speeding ticket. It was for $250, which - at the time - was roughly one-quarter of my monthly salary. I was appalled and said "How fast were you going, for goodness' sake?" "180 kph," he answered (which was probably about 70 kph over the limit). "WHAT? WHY?" "I wanted to see how fast my new car could go, and boy, it was great!"
He didn't even care. He figured that $250 was a small price to pay for making his car go really fast.
To be fair, he paid for it himself - but I kept thinking about how many groceries $250 could pay for, and I was FURIOUS.
