So it started out as just another trip to the lake… and Ben sure surprised me this time! We are fishing in a bay and a game warden rolls up. (I have literally only been checked one other time). He asks for our fishing licenses and all that. Ben finds his immediately, he starts fishing again. I could not find my fishing license in my wallet! The officer takes my driver’s license and goes to look it up. In the mean time, I dumped my wallet on the deck and am frantically searching for it. I remembered there is a confirmation email so I pull it up, ready to show the officer. Ben keeps giving me crap about how he cannot believe I don’t have my license on me and I get all flustered! Officer comes back with a citation for me not having my fishing license. Tells me when the court date is and all the fees. At that point, I am freaking out. Money and time that I do not have! He tells me to check the back sheet of the citation for further instructions and there is another sheet. I turn around to Ben on his knee!!!! I said YESSS!!!
I actually did not get a citation and Ben had taken my fishing license out!
Huge thanks to Officer BJ Morris for helping out! (I had never met him before!)
