whew...i got in just in the nick of time.

oh, and this weekend i will be posting about minneapolis which was fabulous by the way.

hmmm...i'm going to post about my job.

i love my job.
i work in a police department.
i've held three different positions at the same department.

i've been a front desk clerk. i used to have to assist police officers with paperwork, i got to see the prisoners when they were brought in {loads of fun}, i took police reports from citizens who filed a report at the department. i dealt with a lot of pain in the asses.

i've been a records clerk where i entered reports, received subpoenas and gave the attorneys the information they needed, handle public records requests, expungements, and assisted officers.

i am currently the major {patrol commander} secretary. i finally found the position that i love best at this place. my boss is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. he's not just a boss, he's one my dearest friends. there is nothing better then waking up and wanting to go to work.

i just got my 10 year pin.

i've worked here since i was 18 years old.

when i started i was the youngest person at the department {that was both bad and good}.

i met my husband there.

i found the job on a fluke.

i can never, ever part from this police department.

it has been my whole adult life thus far.

i love it.

i love my boys in blue :)

Hey, so we have working for a police department in common. My job was much shorter than yours but I truly enjoyed working there. The Welsh police were especially dishy at the time so that may have helped. But it was pretty fun and exciting at the same time. I'm so pleased to hear that you love your job. I think life is too short to not enjoy your work. What a cheerful post.
