A lighter moment at work...
Today, while I was at work, I stopped off at a stop & rob to grab a drink. While I was filling my cup, a woman asked if I could help her with something. It seems her two kids (2 and 5 or so) have a tendency to get out of their seat belts, and she thought I could scare them into keeping them on. I said I'd help... but I did it in a different way.
See -- parents using cops to scare kids is not something I like at all. I don't need a kid in trouble being afraid to come to me for help. And I keep some stuff in my gear bag for these sorts of things. So... I went out, put my drink in the car, and pulled two jr. officer badges out, then went over to the woman's car.
Her husband was waiting in the car, and rolled the window down as I approached. I said hi, and introduced myself -- and then told them that their mommy said that they didn't always wear their seat belts. I said I'd make them a deal: they could have the jr. officer badges, but they had to promise to wear their seat belts.

Well played. I always correct the parents when I hear them threaten their kids that I'll arrest them if they're not good.Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.
That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

I would have told the kids that if they didn't put their seat belts on, Daddy would get a ticket and a big fine; that he would maybe lose his license and they would have to walk.
