I started off Wednesday morning with a ticket for running a red light.
I was shocked when I googled red light ticket ca and found out that its $490! $490 for running a red light, holy shit!?! That means with the fine, paying extra to attend traffic school and the fee for traffic school, this whole thing is going to cost about $560.
It got me thinking about what I could have bought instead. Things that I would not purchase in my life because they are too extravagant, not practical things such as this amount would have paid my cell phone bill for the next 5 months, new golf clubs, a new iphone, etc.
#1 - Dinner at Thomas Keller's restaurant, The French Laundry.
|Lobster Tail "Pochée Au Beurre Doux" with Caramelized Cipollini Onions, Oregon Hazelnuts, Sunchoke Purée and Valrhona Chocolate-Coffee Emulsion.|
In fact, I could have treated both Chris and myself to the 8 course Prix Fixe dinner.
#2 - A Prada case for my ipad.
I prefer my Kate Spade chevron case to this one but hey, why not if the money is going to waste.
#3 - A night at the Ritz Carleton, SF.
Any excuse to spend a night in the city.
#4 - 250 PowerBall tickets for Wednesday's drawing.
Hell, I would have won the jackpot!
5 - I could have bought into Stephen Curry's ThanksUSA golf tournament.

Spending the day golfing and helping our veterans at the same time, PRICELESS!
