Post #12 of 22
Esteban, did you read my post? The men who stopped me at what was actually a puesto de revisión were not officers, they were impersonating officers, and all six of them were drunk. There was no way to know that they were not officers until the situation was already under way. They were just guys, in white T-shirts and ordinary pants. The actual officers of the puesto were gone, as is sometimes the case. Did you notice that I posted, "I asked for and received a letter of apology from the Sinaloa state government."?
The character of your post, if in fact you read my post thoroughly, is in the nature of blaming the victim. I don't appreciate it. Either you failed to read what I wrote or you decided that because I am a woman I don't know how to handle this sort of situation: dealing with puestos de revisión has to be a guy thing. Give me a break. Either way, you're dead wrong. I've driven thousands and thousands of kilometers all over this vast República and have never had another problem with any other puesto de revisión.
Pick on paisanos more than foreigners? Are you referring to me? Which are you assuming that I am, Mexican or foreign?
Please, give me a little credit. In the first place, I didn't say I was a smart ass, I said I was a wise-ass. In the second place, I'm definitely not a wise-ass in all situations--and in any situation my wise-assed-ness expresses itself in humor, not in offensiveness. And I would never, ever be any sort of wise-ass in a ticklish situation--not in Mexico or any other country. "Did you push them?" Give me a break.
