    Yes.......................... :mad:

    A few weeks ago, I'm inside the ER with a victim of a domestic and all the nurses are in there and they start asking me questions about how a certain investigator does stuff and what the police department does in situations like we had.

    Now mind you, we are all of about two feet away from each other. I'm in uniform which consists of a tan shirt and brown pants and I have five things on my uniform that clearly identify me as a member of the sheriff's department. The PD they were talking about wears blue with about the same amount of things identifying them as members of the PD and I'm sure they spend a lot more time in the ER than we do.

    Fast foward to today. I'm inside Standard Supply picking up some air tool oil. Now before anyone bitches about using company time to do personal business; if it snows, I have a set of snow tires in my garage for the patrol car so I can change them out if need be. :D

    I'm at checkout getting rung up and the cashier looks at me and asks if I'm with the police department.................................................... :confused:

    Just how hard is it for people to read my fancy silver badge and my ugly department patch that identifies me as a deputy sheriff????????????

    :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Sorry...we've been sending them over to you for years! I was wondering when people would notice!:grin:

    I pulled into a gas station in the middle of nowhere, Mississippi one night when the girl at the check on hearing my English accent, looking at my newly aquired '91 K5 with Texas plates on asks...."what part of Texas y'all from anyhow?"
    England I said with a smile and left her looking confused!....some people:haha:

    People call Marines, Soldiers, Airman Sailors, hell, your Letter Carrier's shirt even says "LETTER CARRIER" on the front of it and people still call him/her the, "Mailman."

    You're right, people ARE stupid and blind.

    You ought to be a Dairy Farmer, I tell some people ask some really dumb questions.

    - you really milk 200 cows by hand?
    - you mean you work 7 days a week?
    - its not a 8-5 5 days a week job?
    - do you milk the bulls?

    Hey I could go on and on:confused:

    know what never fails? I get a fresh tattoo, show someone, first question used to ALWAYS be "Did it hurt?" My response always is "No a bunch of needles being thrust into my skin hundreds of times a minute is EXTREMELY pleasurable."

    I milked the cow, but had to jump start her first.
    Eh, we don't have a cow.

    My father-in-law (From Aldershot, England) got the biggest kick last year telling people he was from Texas. His rental had Texas plates!

    Promptly followed by, "HERE'S YOUR SIGN."

    Had some lady at work watch me shut the power off a conveyor and grab my meter, and take some tests and my meter was beeping.

    Had the nerve to ask, "Continuity test."

    I said no, I'm checking some voltage drops with the power off.


    "Here's your sign." :haha:

    Very true. Most of the time they just stare at you like you are some kind of circus freak.

    Gotta love the question "Are you a cop?". Makes you want to answer "Are you human?":confused:

    People are all about talk these days, no thinking. They hear silence and fill it.

    Many years ago, I got stopped for speeding on I-5 just north of San Diego. When I got the ticket, under state of registration it said Alabama. I was driving a truck from Missouri (MO) with "Beyond Local" (BL) tags, hence MOBL, so it must be Alabama. Cops have brain farts too.

    :D

    I was out in the yard tonight spraying some of the 10 tons of mud off my patrol car in preparation for the wash and wax tomorrow when these two misguided youth decided to come irritate me with their neon light questions.

    Introduction: "Are you with the sheriff's department?"

    I should have told them something like: "No, the cop that drove this car; I kicked him in the nards and took the keys from him."

    :D
