In the 4 weeks since I expressed my "love" by giving her the snickers at rollcall:
We are rarely assigned to the same posts anymore.
The marriage is suffering. I've had to get creative to keep the work marriage flames burning bright.
For Easter, I called her on post and told her where she could find a note that led her to her own egg hunt. (I hid eggs throughout our law enforcement facility) This went over better than hoped because she was feeling a little left out since we worked that Sunday and she was missing hiding eggs with her kids.
I started leaving little notes on her timecard. If she is off on a Thursday/Friday, I'm always 1 day rotation different and off on Friday/Saturday. So, I've left a note for her Monday and the day I'm not there.
Silly stuff, like last week's message.
Pepsi from Admin vending?,.... $1.25
Footlong subway?,....... $5.00
Not having to work today? .......... priceless.
(smiley face always included)
I've made inmates walk to her post and deliver candy,.... One, I coerced into singing some Mariah Cary. ........
Sounds like I am in full pursuit, but no. Spread out over the entire month it's been 1-3 small things just to stay in touch.
However, once it is time to clock out, boom, I never see her. I understood this going into the marriage but it is still annoying.
I did not leave the little note on her timecard last night.
It's time for me to begin the separation......
