When asked as a kid what I wanted to be when I grew up, I never said “Policeman” or “Fireman.”Â In fact I actually recall always saying “I don’t know.”Â I guess that’s why I majored in communication and wound up in miserable sales jobs for 8 years.Â But I’ll bet when kids did say “fireman” or “policeman” they certainly don’t have visions like the picture above.
I doubt when a child dreams of upholding the law that means breaking up drunken high school parties and writing crappy parking tickets at the end of the month.Â And I certainly doubt the visions are of holding underwear with doo doo stains on them.
But these are the realities of the profession.Â Being a policeman or fireman isn’t what it’s cracked up to be as a child.Â In fact, it’s pretty damned funny in many cases.
Here are 20 of those moments
