Jul 22nd 2009 10:03PM I remember being in Mexico as a young Marine stationed in SanDiego. My buddy and I were in his car and made a turn onto a main road in Tijuana. My buddy was probably the most careful driver , besides my grandmother that you would ever meet. The Mexico Federal Police stopped us and stated that we made the turn without signaling. Good thing I spoke a little spanish cuz this happened on a Friday night and the cop said we could explain it to the judge on Monday morning after spending the weekend in the slammer . Or....we could settle it now for just 150 US dollars. My buddy started to protest but I gave him a nudge , produced my last fifty bucks from my boot to complete the deal and we were on our back to our barracks; broke. We ordered a pizza , drank our cold beers and thanked God we were back home.
