Making Faces at My Sergeant



Did you ever do something stupid but could not take it back? You might expect something like what you are about to read happening to a little kid, but not to a full-grown man. Especially when he is in a police uniform and on duty!

While on duty one afternoon I had parked my squad in the 500 block of Green Bay Road, and was working radar. After you have been on the job for a few years one day seems like the next in that you tend to do the same things, over and over again.

So to see a white 1962 Ford Fairlane coming up the street at 4:45 p.m. you know who it is. It's one of the Sergeants from the 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. shift going home. Sergeant Roddy was a few minutes late, but it was he and he was slowing down as he approached my squad.

I was known as a clown and a joker on the department (you will read a few times in this book about that) and I had just gotten an idea. The Sergeant pulled up along side and rolled down his passenger window. I turned to look at him as I made this twisted lip look with a snarl and crossed my eyes. Opps! Who was this stranger looking at me with a puzzled look on his face? It wasn't the Sergeant thatís for sure. As he asked a question for directions and I already had this stupid look on my face, I decided to keep the look and added a voice with it that was not my original one. After all how can you give directions with a twisted snarl and crossed eyes without sounding a little different.

"Excuse me Officer can you tell me how to get to Willow Road, please?" He asked. With a muffled grunt tone, I said to him, " Nu nust snay non Nreenbayn Noard nor nabount na nmile unnill nu snee Nillow on ner neft. Nu nan nonly ngo nun nay! (Translation; you just stay on Green Bay Road for about a mile until you see Willow Road on your left, you can only go one way).

"O.K. thanks officer, I got it." He answered. Then as he drives away I see him through his back window shaking his head and talking to himself, as if saying, what a poor soul to have a job as a police officer and to be out in public view like he is every day.

Note; The above story was not told to make fun of anyone that may have a problem in their speech or their looks, only to tell what happened to me on that day.

I know this can happen. I had a friend once give a sergeant a kiss on the head because he was yelling at him. It shocked him so much he didn't know what to do next. Funny- Thanks for sharing

Funny. I like reading a light story once in a while, something that makes me smile. And having grown up with my father being a cop, it seems to me to be realistic. But, all things considered, it wasn't all that stupid. You want to hear some dumb cop stories, e-mail me, and I'll give you some of my dad's stories.
