Asking a cat to sit is easier then dealing with these folks

Apparently I’m a high risk driver and hold a major offence on my record because I got a ticket violation for holding a hand held device over 3 years ago. They only accept new drivers with no past incidents. Guess it’s a company being run by 19-30 year olds with no compassion or empathy for people. Because everyone should be perfect and living life according to a science text book. What a joke this country is becoming.
