I don't know who you are Pak, I don't know your name. Your face is also not visible, but I wanted everyone out there to know that I am so disappointed in some of the police officers out there.
I have been somewhat "lucky" when dealing with police. I do something wrong, they pull me over, I plead guilty and ask for my ticket. SO FAR, not one single one has given me an actual ticket. I would like to believe it's because of my sweet smile and innocent face, but I think it is more because they expect me to buy myself out of trouble. I try to face my mistakes and if I did make a mistake, then let me suffer the consequences. I will NOT pay out of my mistakes. So, like I said, I have been lucky. They always let me go with a "Don't make the same mistake again!"
However, last Sunday, hubby dearest also made a mistake. He is not so stiff and righteous as me and quickly asked the police officer for "help." And me, I swiftly took out my camera because I knew what was going to happen next. I was shaking from fear he'd see my camera, and smash it to pieces or something like that... (I know my imagination has a tendency to run...). But I got away with my little scheme :D, and I'm now able to tell you all about it. I can't really use any of this for reporting purposes anyway. I don't know his name, I didn't get his face... so I think nobody is going to get too mad at me. It's a reality that this happens all the time. We just don't have the guts to report it. Like me!!
I wish I could say that we are improving overall... you know, our country's moral values is getting better. The government is cracking down on bribery... but life lessons tell me that it isn't happening fast enough. "Ayuk pak, jangan bikin malu semua orang Indonesia ya... Let's build a better Indonesia!!"
