Wow, that's depressing.

I'm not sure I could be satisfied with a job that allows such a lack of productivity. Do you feel guilty when you pick up your paycheck, having nothing to show for it?

I saw that too after I posted it. And it's surprising that no one had until now.

Everyone is cooler than me. That is not much of a stretch.

Or what about a "job" where you get as many beers/mixed drinks/whatever from an open bar, a personal bartender, and your local cops pay for the whole thing??

Man, your town's jail sounds a whole lot better than ours! (not that I would know anything about my town's jail)

For the record, that was not meant to imply I was cooler than you... just that my job was cooler. I'm not cooler than anyone.

I volunteer with my PD and every so often they have events where they get people drunk and then practice doing sobriety tests on them. Pretty funny to see cops offering free beer, jack daniels, etc.
