This may be a bit unusual as it's nothing to do with a relationship, but I come seeking your views anyway.
I'm 24 years old and I consider myself to be a very responsible hardworking adult. Before anyone jumps to conclusions, I grew up in a working class home with very little so no, I didn't get any handouts and free rides! At the end of last year, I'd finally managed to work and save enough after getting my mortgage earlier that year to buy a Porsche 911. I grew up and currently live in a lower class part of London. I chose to buy a property here because I am accustomed to the area.

Onto my main question:
This morning, I was driving my car and the police pulled me over. (Now I have no speeding tickets, no prior convictions nothing, totally clean licence) She starts off by telling me how stupid and ridiculous my exhaust sounds. To this I reply, it's factory standard mam. Then she changes the tone and says, "You were doing 40mph in a 30mph zone!" To this I reply, that could not be as the limiting buzzer( it's a little bell in my satnav that jingles when I go over the limit) didn't go off. She then replies "Don't argue with me, I'm giving you a verbal warning, do you want a ticket?" I then sighed. And she left.

For the entire day this situation has had me infuriated and I cannot seem to stop thinking about it. Any advice as to how I could get over this bothering me so much would be appreciated.

Picture looks like my car.

You drive a nice car that draws attention.

cops generally will give you more attention now, partially because they'll assume that fast car = you speed more often, partially because some people don't like it when other people have nice things.

Police can be petty, small bitches. They're human after all.

Take pride in the fact that you took the pragmatic approach and let her win the argument to avoid the ticket.

Bullshit confronts you once in a while. It's a positive thing that all you lost was a little time.

What I'm trying to say is, look for the positives in a situation.
