OT

20 minutes before quitting time, I get sent to pick up some guy with a felony warrant who's supposedly hiding out at his house. On the way, I come across a 3-car crash that has a major intersection blocked, car parts scattered everywhere, and antifreeze spilled all over the place. It's 800 below 0 outside. I get the scene secured until another officer can take over, then head to the warrant call. Nobody home. What a surprise. On the way back to the station, I stop and back up another officer who's dealing with a group of drunks by himself. After the detox trip, I manage to get back to the station, finish the day's paperwork, and go home. Three hours late. Some days, the OT just isn't worth it.

Ah, but you wouldn't have any other job would you now, would you.
