BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) -- Not too many people can say they're happy about being pulled over by police.

Not too many people can say they enjoy getting a ticket, either.

But one woman was so moved by an Idaho State trooper's professionalism and kindness, she just had to say thank you. On Wednesday, ISP shared a thank-you note from a grandma who was vacationing in Idaho.

She apparently was in a little bit of a hurry, though, and was pulled over by an ISP trooper. She got busted for speeding, but later wrote a thank you note.

"Dear Idaho State Police, Recently I was on vacation with my grandchildren and was pulled over for speeding. Officer Mike Nielson made it a good experience for my grandchildren by talking with them calmly and giving them stickers. He didn't leave me out and I got my very own STICKER SHOCK :) Thanks for a great attitude."

It's unclear how much the ticket was worth.
