You Know You Work in Law Enforcement If...

If you pay attention to my blog, you know that I work in law enforcement. My co-worker is doing a speech class and she was preparing a speech today. Her speech was about working in law enforcement. She printed off this list and everything on it pretty much applies to me. It's hilarious. You would have to work in law enforcement to understand some of the things, but I'm going to post it anyway.

2. You have ever restrained someone and it was not a sexual experience.

3. You believe that 50% of people are a waste of good air.
