True Detective Stories

So, I effectively had four days off these past few days. I took a vacation day Thursday, and had CPR training Friday.

When I arrived there were a few jobs waiting for me, including a robbery from Thursday.

As I checked the list, our favorite defective was up first. That’s right, Diego the Idiot Detective received the robbery report, and when he walked by my desk, he whined like a little bitch.

“How is this my job?” he asked.
“Because you were the last detective with an arrest.”

“No I wasn’t!”
(Shows Diego the list from the previous day.)
“Oh, I guess I did have the last arrest.”

Meanwhile, I received a few texts from the Red Menace while I was at CPR. Apparently the air conditioning died – again – and the city placed some portable air conditioners in our building. The problem was they forgot the tubes which push the hot air through the windows. So, the a/c was effectively useless.

Enter Diego.

Diego apparently turned on the air conditioner anyway, knowing it would blast hot air in the division, and the Red Menace said it rose the temperature to 95 degrees. Everyone – including the supervisor – told this dullard to turn off the a/c, but Diego refused. Suffice to say, he is being ignored this week.

    1. The biggest problem with people like Diego is they keep their noses clean during the probation period, but once it’s over, it’s next to impossible to get rid of them.


  1. RD – My supervisor is a really good guy, and he also understands Diego is retarded. When Diego went out on the street, the supervisor turned off the a/c himself.

    MelP – That’s 100% true in this department. If he was in the private sector, he would have been fired within the first year.

    Ronni – Speaking of, the police department has decreed we cannot run out our vacation/sick time when it comes time to retire. We usually would be able to compile our vacation and sick time, and take our last few months off without penalty, because if we don’t use it, we lose it.

    Now the city has said because of the officer shortage – a problem of their own doing – we can not do that. So they’re screwing with our sick and vacation time.


    1. They revamped ours here at the university. We no longer get paid for any unused vacation and you cannot use any for two months prior to retiring. I have five and 1/2 weeks to use right now. We also only get paid for 25% of our unused paid sick time. I have 28 weeks accumulated right now. Better start getting sick notes from my doc and taking some of that, too.


      1. The city finally told us we “can” use the time, but we will need a sick note every ten days. I despise this department. Also, bosses are allowed to run time, but us grunts cannot.


    1. Our air conditioner – the one they put on the roof a few months ago – died. Because awful city. They brought in rolling air conditioners, and every row – we have three – has an a/c. Problem is the idiots who work for the city forgot the tubes.
