  • And she wonders why the magic is gone

    I'm writing this while the rookie is struggleing with the mysteries of the ten-print card. Anyway, we respond (myself as shift commander, an FTO, and his pet monkey) to a domestic. The rookie laborously and with much coaching fumbles his way through a domestic violence case that should have taken ten minutes to handle. I send him & the FTO off with the prisoner while I wrap uyp the scene details (photos of injury, victims rights form, victim's statement).

    Guy and girl in their early twenties have been shacked up since mid-December, so a mimimum of two months, right? I've got the boyfriend with the shiner writing his version of events, and as he's filling out the form he looks up at me and asks, 'Did you get her last name? I only know her first name." He was completely serious.

    And she wonders why the relationship isn't working.
    Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow; do not walk behind me, for I may not lead; do not walk beside me; in fact, get the hell away from me.

    Yeah, that's pretty stupid on his part but it never ceases to amaze me that people don't know who they are working with, living with, or dealing with. I've answered calls where a guy let some girl he just met drive his car & she hasn't brought it back. "Well, what's her name?" "I don't know, I just met her." I've had women tell me that their boyfriend just hit them. "What's his name?" "Ron." "What's his last name?" "Oh, I just know him as Ron." "Well where does he live." "Here." "Does he have his own place?" "Yeah, but I don't know the address." People, come on. And you want sympathy?

      Sounds like they aren't quite "all there" mentally, or they are so lonely they will settle for anything available.

      Which reminds me of the way a former co-worker once described another person we worked with. She will "go anywhere with anybody any time". I could think of another phrase to describe that type but I'm too polite to use it.
