Time Check

Dear Dispatch,

Don't get me wrong. I love you guys. You have a job I could never do. I know you work hard. I know you are my lifeline.

But come on! Fifteen minutes before quitting time, the next shift has been on for 45 minutes and still has every single officer available, and you send me on a call. And it's a call everybody knows will take at least an hour. That's two days in a row. Did I do something to piss you off? Lucky for me, people on the next shift are paying attention and jumping the runs so I can go home on time. Wind your watch, will ya'? Thanks.

Well,as a former dispatcher, all I can tell you is you probably pissed someone off at some point, and this is your pay back.

Maybe they don't realize we're off daylight savings time??? Or maybe they think you're going to spend your overtime checks on Christmas presents for all of them. ;)
