"I didn't do it"

Followed by a laugh...in line at the grocery store in uniform. ( or anywhere else for that matter with the public)

I don't even polite chuckle anymore, IT DRIVES ME NUTS.

So.... you're an angry cop?

ETA: Just out of curiosity where in OR are you? A couple friends of mine live in Philomath.

Yep, I feel yer pain. What would really make my eye twitch is when they would put their hands behind their backs too. Still managed a chuckle, but it was very tough.

How about when they tell the little kids you better be good or the Cop is gonna get you? That one gets me. Scares the little kiddos everytime. I try to smile and give them a sticker or trading card...

Them: "I DIDN'T DO IT!"

Me: "Then you don't win the prize, do you?"
Link Posted: 7/2/2008 11:07:54 PM EST
Ha!

The last time a parent used the "be good or the cop will arrest you" line, I told mommy, "Ma'am, It's hard enough trying to be a positive influence with kids, you'll make my job easier if you tell your son I'm there to help"

Guess what....

I got beefed.

Nothing like trying to eat in peace and getting the "Do you have a second?" Then you get the 10 minute long version of how their neighbor's nephew got a DUI and how should they go about fighting it in court.

Or lately I have been getting, "Hey do you know your car is running?" followed by "I'm a taxpayer and I don't pay for you to leave it running." (I guess the giant "Stay Away" "K9" is not a big enough hint for people)

HAAA! I tell 'em; "My car will go off automatically" most just nod and move on!


I'll have to remember that one.

Actually had a few complaints about leaving my vehicle running while on lunch or on a call. You have to love people sometimes.

I don't mind the "take him" comments or silly questions, grownups can act however they want.

It's the nudging their kids, pointing at me, and then turning me into some sort of blue suited boogie man that annoys me. How in the hell am I ever going to get kids to trust or respect police if their own damn parents make me into some sort of monster? That crap pretty much guarantees a (polite) lecture.

When i was 16, my 2nd job ever was at Dunkin Donuts, try working there and hearing people stumble in and saying "Time to make the doughnuts" every day, 10 times a day, each person thinking they are the funniest bastard that ever set foot in a Dunkin Donuts.

You arent the only one, everyone hates their fucking job sometimes.

When they say crap like that I usually ask them if they have a guilty conscience or something. Then, I ask if they have any warrants and do I need to check. That usually shuts them up. I've never seen one get pissed off but if they ever do I plan on just telling the Lt "Shit Phil, I thought we were both just joking around!"

Had a guy complain about me leaving the car running while I was eating lunch. He gives the "My tax dollars are being wasted" yada yada yada

I just asked him if his boss shut the AC off in his office when he went to lunch. He walked away without another word.

Only difference there is that his boss is most likely paying the bill and can do what he wants.

You on the other hand most likely get paid with taxpayer dollars.

There is a difference.

Just curious: Why do you leave it running? Is there a K-9 in the back, or is it something else?

Around here someone is likely to steal it.

I take it you don't drive a squad car. Most modern police cars have about 500 pounds of battery draining electrical equipment in them. If I turn it off for any length of time, everything resets, including the computer, GPS, digital camera and microphone recorder.....etc. It takes about 20 minutes to reboot and reset all the equipment (at least mine). If I get a call during this time, it won't be on video or recorded on tape. If my contact with the "taxpayer" isn't on tape or recorded, i will be written up. I have been written up for this exact scenario twice. I leave my car running now.

Why don't you write your city council and request that police stay at the station and deploy to calls like fireman. It would save gas, and I could sleep and play xbox until I get a call. I always wanted to be a fireman

There are alot of other things to bitch about in this world besides cops leaving their cars running. Jesus.

I feel your pain. EVERY SINGLE TIME (no exceptions) we went shopping for our daily meal groceries at Wally World, without fail - some 400 pound woman in stretch pants with a total of 5 teeth in her mouth (3 of which wiggled when she talks to you) HAS to say "Where da fiyah at?" To which I respond "Must not be here or I'd be spraying you with a hose."

"I pay your salary."

Look at it this way--most people are honest, hardworking, and law-abiding. They want to bridge the gap with the cops; but most police are intimidating to them. So they try to make a (small) joke to break the ice.

And you, in turn, (by not even "politely chuckling" at their little jokes anymore) reinforce the idea that most cops are power mad assholes who look at everyone as scum of the earth. You make the gap wider.

Half-joking ; but half-serious, too. Meant with the best of intentions. Think about it.

Sounds like win-win to me. You get to stay in an air conditioned station until needed, and I don't have to worry about obeying those bastardly low speed limits. And if there are more BGs than my AR-15 can handle I'll just give you a call.
