    I work in the oilfield gor last 10 years, NCCCO c operator and I'm also a residential contractor on my week off.

    Loved this question, Donovan! What a great group we have here! I'm a hardcore "professional" housewife!

  • Eddie's avatar

    I’m a Chief of Police in a small town in Alabama. @Mike is right, no one wants to get in or stay in LE anymore.

  • @Eddie such a sad state of affairs we find ourselves in. We desperately need good men to serve in LE, and on the other hand, can’t blame them for not wanting to stay. I did it for 5 years and got out 16 years ago for reasons other than our current state of the union. My oldest 2 have aspirations to be in LE when the time comes; oldest want to be a Game Warden and the next in line wants to be a Deputy Sheriff. I both love and hate their desires.
