I really want to know
If you are a cop what details do you share with your wife? If you are a wife of a cop what details does your husband share? Do you get to hear about all the calls, or do you get no information at all?
I think it is a good for cops to be able to share the big calls, the stuff that has gotten to them. Things like when T-rex dealt with his first dead body, we talked about that a lot. But then there are things I don’t get to hear about at all. Truly I think T-rex shares a little more with me than some of the other guys on his department. Yet in a small town that it is a good thing I don’t know it all. I am sure it would get me into some kind of trouble to know this and the gossip starts to go around.
But because T-rex doesn’t share that much with me I don’t have a lot to write about here! No it is more than that, his job sometimes seems like a mystery to me. I mean we do talk about his day it goes something like this:
Me: How was work?
T-tex: Great, I pulled someone over for almost 20 over, he was not happy with the ticket.
Me: Wow that is fast!
T-rex: Guy acted like he was going to fight it, I wish I had my (insert some cop term) on with me.
Me: Um yeah
T-rex: then I could have had voice on the recording
Me: Oh, anything else go on at work?
T-rex: I got a call out to (small town) some crazy stuff in that town!
Me: Oh really?
T-rex: Yeah I got a call to go out there because some kid wanted to run away from home. He just called.
Yeah see you now know nothing too! But then again that might be a whole lot to some other people. It is so different from the academy where he would tell me everything he learned, and everything he was doing. Now I get short little bites. What is really bad is when the gossip people get more information than I do! I have to run home and ask T-rex if what sally talks a lot says is true, sometimes it is!
So I want to know how much information do you give out or get?
