Did I Stutter?

I don't understand why, after I have stopped a driver, explained the violation, taken their license, registration and insurance, told them they were getting a citation, gone back and written the ticket, then reappeared at their door, some drivers will ask me with utter incredulity...

"I'm getting a ticket?!

Of course you are! Do you think I'm gonna tell you I'm giving you a ticket, go write it, then come back and say "April Fools!"?

I'm beginning to think I mutter, or stutter, or am somehow unclear in my explanations to people, because this happens a lot...

Do you use the word ticket, or do you say citation (like you did in this post)? People may just not realize they're one and the same.
