Inspired by Solilio, Ajit and many others…

‘Oh the post is here!! Hope its that ‘little something’, he had promised me’, she thought as she ran down the stairs to pick up her post.

‘Well, it’s certainly isn’t a dress, may be it’s a voucher’, she thought ,tearing open the little brown envelope only to burst into tears – a speeding ticket!

PS : My very first try and was even more difficult that I had thought!

  1. @Hitchwriter – Thank you. I somehow prefer calling you Hitchwriter to Dhiren πŸ™‚

    @Manju – Yes, my friends have got it along with their photographs – so there was no way they could even think of contesting it πŸ™‚

  2. This is good Smitha:)
    And I have seen how hard 55ers can be , thats why i appreciate this and everyone else’s

    you have done a good job:)

    my question was going to be the same as Manju’s..
    speeding tickets come by post?:D
    wah!with pics too…no way to wriggle out of them:D

  3. @Indyeah – Yes it was tough.. Even this I had to go through several iterations to fit it in 55 words 😦
    From what I know – there is no way of evading them unless you want to lose your license – will let you know for sure when I get one πŸ™‚

  4. Excellent! This is really good.

    About speeding tickets, out here in Dubai, the camera images are so clear that it catches the number plate, the driver, whether or not he/she is wearing a seat belt or talking on the phone!

    But we don’t get it by post. We get to see it online! πŸ˜›

  5. I was once caught for speeding. I asked what is the limit, and the answer came – 40 Km/H!! They were actually standing next to a board that said so much and catching people! But nice story in two small paras.

  7. @Masood, Thank you! You’ll be surprised at the amount of paper that is still used here πŸ™‚

    @Kanagu – You get a speeding ticket , if you are caught exceeding speed limits πŸ™‚ You may not know that you did it until you get the ticket in the post.

    @IHM, Yes, I had a tough time doing it.

    @DI, Thank you! So they actually flagged you down is it? Here, there are speed cameras which capture everything that Masood mentioned and it is sent to the offenders..

    @Vinod, Thank you, Yes, no news is definitely goood news, esp in such cases πŸ™‚

    @Varunavi , Thank you.

    @Ajit, Yes, sad ending πŸ™‚ My friends have got tickets like too πŸ™‚ We got a congestion charge fine once πŸ™‚

    @Usha Pisharody, Thank you for dropping by, I lurk at your blog – I love the way you write!

    @Vimmuuu – You do? Waiting to see your 55er πŸ™‚

    @Mavin, Yes, why don’t you try it too? It was fun doing it..

  8. Good to know that there are still some uses of the good old snail mail and the brown envelope. It’s better to not get any mail than one like this. Good one!! Nice fiction (thank God) and very well put across.

So, what do you think?
