Do You Want to be a Cop

I do…just so I can grow a mustache and shave my head. How about you??

I’m not sure if you’re truly looking for other opinions or not. But, since there is no General Question here, this one is moved from GQ to IMHO.

i think being a homicide or narcotics detective would be a great job. i wouldn’t want to be a patrolman writing speeding tickets and such so i don’t think i could ever make it to detective.

Nope. I have an authoritarian tendency when I’m angry that would only be made worse if I had the power to implement it. In other words, make me mad, and I’d be sorely tempted to be a crooked cop to get back at you.

I would love to, but I’d get fired within a week.

But why would you, traditionally the police force is a terrible work environment for a woman.

I’ve always liked the idea of a job where I don’t have to be nice to the people I’m working with.

No, no I don’t.

Been there, done that.

I became a fireman so the cops would have a hero to worship.

Don’t know why anyone would want to for any other reason than job security.

Naaa, I just live vicariously through my two sister-in-law cops.

Funny thing, neither of them grew a mustache or shaved their head (although I did).

A woman I was talking to said that a goatee with a shaved head looks (to her) like a vagina with a tummy above. :stuck_out_tongue: If you squint…
She was being cute, not mean.
No. I could never be a cop. Too military.

I don’t look good with a shaved head and mustache.

Depends on the force and the percentage of women on that force. I know a woman who’s been on the LAPD for coming on 20 years, and she loves her job, including the work environment.

No, sorry. Don’t feel like getting shot 3 days before retirement. (we call that “retirony”.)

I call it extremely rare.

Are you sure you don’t just want to be gay?

Hey! That tickles.
