One last Thank You from MC

To all of you who have posted comments to me and those of my ilk in the past week and a half, be it here or on FB (for those of you truly in the know…not you, blogstalker(s)), I really want to offer my sincere thanks.

It’s always tough in this job to be reminded of our mortality. We’re trained from the first day that cops never quit. We never lose. We will overcome. Any other attitude is met with a much swifter and potentially more violent end. So, when our fellow cops are touched by God and taken from us, it’s a reminder to the rest of us that the possibility exists.

Wrestling with those demons can be draining. Physically, mentally, and emotionally. Not the state of mind necessary to do our job safely. Encouragement from you all has, in no short order, helped me to pick myself up and get back to it.

I know there are a number of you that don’t comment. That is just fine. I’ll admit I love seeing the notice that there is an unmoderated comment pending. But for those of you either not comfortable with leaving a message or just plain too busy…do me a favor. Next time you see your local incarnation of Enforcer. Just walk over and say, “Thanks.” Or, wave. Throw us a smile. You wouldn’t believe the positive impact it can have.

Again, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for taking the time to not only read this silliness, but for letting me know you’re out there, you’re supportive, and you appreciate our work.

Enough of this folderol….on with the frivolity.

Please note: I reserve the right to delete comments that are offensive or off-topic. Snark is encouraged. Being a prat is not.

  1. *sigh* you and your $0.25 words…

    folderol: applesauce, codswallop, rubbish, trash, tripe (dictionary.com)

    Codswallop? Really? I looked that one up too. It means nonsense.

    and THAT, my sweet, is codswallop.

  2. You have facebook?? if your interested in adding me as a friend, hit me up on my email on my blog. You are always thanked, if not by the public, then by your fellow brothers and sisters in blue, and us in dispatch!!!!

  3. It would be nice if we could all treat each other with respect and courtesy. All of us are equally deserving of it. I've met more than a few cops who could learn that lesson. Unfortunately respect isn't taught in the family unit anymore. It's just my opinion.

    There's bad apples amongst us all. I can only be responsible for myself and my family unit. I can assure you courtesy and respect are alive and well in that arena.

  5. You missed my point. I was only saying you should wave and say thanks to others as well. You mentioned your favorite coffee stop. When was the last time you thanked any of them for providing a service to you? We're all deserving of it. Not all citizens are criminals waiting to happen.

    You are barking up the wrong tree. I did it this morning when I got my coffee. I'm a fair-minded chap and don't expect of others what I don't demand of myself.

    You may now remove the chip from your shoulder. 🙂
