It's Always Something (Part II)

So yeah, Melissa ended up getting a ticket for talking to me on her phone while driving. I know it's illegal and that she shouldn't have been doing it, but the pig didn't have to be a jerk about it.

I'm very conflicted when it comes to my feelings on the police. I studied criminal justice and one of my possible career paths was always law enforcement. I worked closely with the police officers at one of my old jobs, and I have friends who are cops. They do a tough, sometimes thankless job, and it isn't easy. A lot of them are good guys, but then there are the assholes.

The ones that beat up women in bars, or drive drunk and kill innocent people, or kill their wives and have their buddies cover it up. Or beat up people in wheel chairs, etc. Part of the reason that I gave up on becoming a cop was that I saw all of the idiots that were trying to join the force around me, in my classes and at the exam. There's also the occasional ex-gangbanger turned cop that I seem to run into every once in a while.

Anyway, I tend to agree that a lot of the laws in this country are set up to maintain the status quo. People don't like change. ***I just deleted a huge rant that I went on, don't mind me**

So yeah, that's that. Keeping on topic...do me a favor and hit me back with things that work.

??? huh? I know you're like what do you mean, things that work?

Let me 'splain. RCN sucks. The DVR hiccups sometimes and the cable goes out. Sometimes the internet i s sloooow. It's been better though. My phone sucks. Is it my phone? Or is it AT&T? Well I don't know because Sprint sucked too. Ticketmaster. They suck. The new vacuum we got a while back, it sucks, but not in the way it's supposed to. (that could be my fault though, I think I broke it, nonetheless, it sucks) Safari sucks but then Firefox screws some things up too. I'll stop bitching.

There's still a couple of things I wanted to touch base on, wedding crap, the pre-cana, etc. I'll get to them eventually.

I have the WORST luck with cops. They are never they when I need them and always there when I don't want them. Hee. I'm really sorry about Melissa though, it really sucks. It's a commnon thing here in Miami to talk on your cell, while driving even though it's illegal. Hell, even the cops to it too! The cop was an ass for giving her that ticket.

Don't tell anyone...but I have this secret fantasy about becoming a cop (which is exactly why I shouldn't...)

Heh. I guess it's like they say that anyone worth having as President shouldn't want to be President. You'd be a cool cop, maybe even a detective, like Monk. :)
