Ok, so in a bit gotta go to police station, deal with this (as mentioned in the ACAB thread)
"This is a good one. A few months back I'm driving my car late at night, randomly stopped by the police, they breathalyze me, all fine and ask to see the documentation for the car. Now I bought it in Liza's name so fucking Barnaby has a flash of genius and realizes I'm not Elizaveta V******* they get mad suspicious and think I've nicked the car. They search me against a wall, search car everything. But when I can give all her details easily and correctly they realise my story checks out, they give me the wallet that contains the docs and I drive off.
Yesterday stopped again. They ask for the docs, I give em the wallet and this time I anticipate the problem. I say "Yes I know it says a woman's name but blah blah" but looking through looking box, they say "there's no document for ownership here". I'm thinking they're crazy, what you on about, I know it's in there look.... except it's not. Seems the other guys forgot to put it back. So unless I can produce it by Monday - which is gonna be impossible cos the only way to get a new one involves going to a notary, which I've just done, and then they send it off and it comes in the post whenever - I'm getting 200 euro fine or something's. Cos the police lost, or in fact stole, my fucking documentation.
I told the story to the notary, I said "I think the police lost it for me" and she says "yeah probably" completely unsurprised."
So I gotta go deal with it - but the more I think about it, the more it seems unfair. I want to point out what happened and argue my point. Maybe I can't avoid being fined, but I do want to at least register my feelings and have it recorded somewhere that this is an injustice.
Problem is, as a rule, I tend to be quite shy, someone who avoids confrontation even when I'm right, with the final upshot that I can be a bit of a pushover ie I let people do things they shouldn't or I agree to things I don't want to do.
And today I don't want to do that, and, as we are in the intoxication thread, It probably doesn't take a genius to understand that I'm thinking about chemical assistance in growing a backbone.
What I've plumped for is a combination a few friends have recommended recently, that is to say that I smoked a load of crack to raise my confidence levels and make me less likely to just quietly accept any outright lies or unfair statements on their part.
But I tempered that with some Xanax to take the edge off and tp ensure I appear outwardly calm. I want to be confident and self-assured but in control, not some manic, sweating, shouting hyperactive kinda guy. Rather I intend to be smoothly unruffled, unwilling to be brow-beaten but far from hectoring when I make my own points.
What you thinking guys, good plan? Reading back it looks to me as though I can't fail, right now I wouldn't be surprised if they cancel the fine and offer me a job too while I'm there.
But I do like to consider oher viewpoints so please tell me how good you think this plan is.
