i asked a police office who i know and he said it's because it's a part on the ticket that needs to be filled in. this is his words exactly (Because it's a box to fill in on the ticket.)

Yes there is a box on the ticket for occupation but it makes no difference at all if it's filled in or not.

nate:I can't fathom how your job affects the outcome...


Well when I was accosted by a cop in the street because he didn't like the way I pressed the crossing signal button (I just think he didnt' like the way I look) he damn near arrested me - when he took my details I said "Graphic Deisgner" and his whole attitude changed and he became pleasant and let me go.

So I guess it CAN affect the outcome, haha.

Handsomedan: I thought it might be because everyone hates lawyers...so if you admitted to being one, the fine would increase exponentially...


Yes well I am a lawyer and when I am ever stopped (happens, mostly asking 'did you see x') I say lawyer, though do ensure I say 'of the commercial rather than criminal variety'.

It was a freeeeezing day, hands were in pockets, so I nudged my knee up into the button. Not even agressively.

He told me I was comitting vandalism. (Hey, I was dressed in black, I MUST be up to no good)

I've since seen the same guy giving people grief whlist on the beat.

If they ask you that, say the following:

"Writer"
Cop: "Oh, what do you write?
"Wrongs."

Hat tip to Te Radar.....cant wait to try that on with customs




For billions of years since the outset of time, every single one of your ancestors survived, every single person on your Mum and Dads side, successfully looked after and passed onto you life.  What are the chances of that like?
