My whole body went numb; it was like I was having an out of body experience. After a couple seconds I slowly got feeling back and realized I better do what he says.

I was fumbling through my purse trying to find my license, and then though my glove box for my registration, it felt like it took forever. I was terrified, thinking I have just ruined my entire day.
