As a cop, I actually like it when I go to write a summons or arrest someone and they get pissed at me. Then I don't feel as bad for doing it. But when they're really cool about it and understand they broke the law, then I feel bad.
@SWAT, now I don't know which way to act when you arrest me...
@Metzger, oh. You can disregard how I treat criminals. You get a very different treatment.
@SWAT, wait a second...so you're the cop from the Timothy quick commercial! You're right. All I could see was that you had glasses :/
@Carla Turkleton, haha! So wait, did you see the commercial on your own or when I mentioned it before?
@SWAT, Wait, you're a real police officer?
@SimonPetrikov, yea, I'm actually a SWAT medic. The username is for real.
@SWAT, Thank you for your service
@SimonPetrikov, matter of fact, I thank YOU for your appreciation and respect. Most people hate me for no reason except that im a cop.
@SWAT, i shouldve made my name police explorer then SWAT is full of awesome people you rock
@Toonami, thanks bro!
@Toonami, good for you for being in the explorers. I can't think of a better way to get into the biz. You're starting early, you've got a great career ahead of you!
@SWAT, I know a guy who convinced his kids not to trust cops. Never really understood that mentality. As far as I'm concerned, you're in the business of risking your life to protect your community. My father was a marine, and despite what I think of him as a person, I respect the service that he and people like him - like you- have provided.
@SimonPetrikov, thanks man. I hate it when I hear someone say to their kids, "see that cop over there, I'm going to tell him to take you away if you keep acting up." Thats only going to bring a fear of police. We're here to protect and shouldn't be feared.
And dude, mad props to your dad. I'm sorry for your current relationship with him, but tell him there's a swat officer I'm virginia beach that wants to shake his hand.
@SWAT, He says he wants to shake yours. He has a ton of respect for medics.
@SimonPetrikov, awesome brother. I couldn't be a marine. So I've got wicked respect for them.
@SWAT, *silently upvotes and raises respect level for a brave individual*
@SWAT, you sir are a lucky cop......to still have feelings that is! Be afraid when any & all feelings go away. They seem to slip away the closer you get to retirement.
@CajunDuckSlayer, yea. Too many of my comrades no longer have the feels. But I can't say much. I'll likely lose them in time.
@SWAT, yeah I watched it when I saw you mention it. I wasn't positive if you were the drunk driver (even though you said the video showed you blurry and quickly) or the cop. But anyways I wonder what it's like to be a SWAT medic. Anyways, like Simon said, thank you for your service.
@Carla Turkleton, oh ok. I got excited for a minute there. I thought maybe you just saw the commercial on TV. But yea, I'm the cop. And you're welcome. Its my pleasure to serve.
@SWAT, haha no I live in North Carolina. So close to Virginia. No chance of seeing the commercial :/. Wait does that commercial go all over the state of Virginia, my friend (from here on FP. Remoonla) lives in Virginia. She might have seen the commercials.
@SWAT, yeah I don't like you because you're a cop. I don't think you'd like me either though so well call it fair
@Furry Cheese Farts, dang dude. Thats pretty messed up. Thats not fair at all because you don't know me. And I won't say I don't like you because I don't know you.
@SWAT, hey I know you saw time traveler's comment on the orangutan picture in the rain (since you commented on it) do you care to join? It'd be pretty cool if you did.
@Carla Turkleton, I'll check it out. I don't know though, I thought Line would be cool so I checked that out and it was lame as mess. So I kinda got ruined for funnypics community chats.
@SWAT, oh I understand. I've been on the touch app for about what's going to be a year now. When there are a whole bunch of people it's pretty crazy and everyone is saying all this weird stuff. If you add me (carla turkleton) then I'll add you right into the smaller chat. I'll just warn you the lag can be real at times but I think it'd be cool if you joined.
@SWAT, I think you've aquired a new fan, or stalker, I can't tell
@Metzger, hooray for new stalker!
@SWAT, lol, have fun with that
@SWAT, hahahaha... Hahaha... Ha.. Ha..... So how'd you find out?.... So haha no I've just seen you comment and get top comment recently every other update so I'd thought it'd be cool. If you don't want to it's fine but if you do, then know I'll be there. Anyways see you around!
@Carla Turkleton, ok I'll give it a shot.
@Carla Turkleton, I sent you a request in touch. My name there is brock forger.
@Metzger, *fry face* not sure if I should downvote to mimic the results of the last pic or upvote for playing along... Upvote it is!
@Metzger, also, did you really just go back and find this pic just to do that?
@SWAT, I might've had this...... saved in my favourites O.O
@SWAT, also, I didn't downvote you
@Metzger, mm hm. I see....
@Metzger, also, I know you didn't downvote me. I figured others did because they don't know about our thing here and thought I was being a jerk.
@SWAT, it seems to have been Heroin & someone else. I went to school with that guy, & we don't have a "history" but I'm sure he wanted one & might still "hold a torch" for me, lol
@Metzger, really? Oh wow.
@SWAT, :| I probably should've said that via email, I don't want to embarass anyone. Owell...
@Metzger, haha probably. Eh. Oh well.
@SWAT, anywho... I don't know what else to say on this subject
@Metzger, that's usually when people just don't say anything at all. Buuuut, that's none of my business. Lol
Had a woman one time tell me that (and I quote) " people like you are what's wrong with this world." Her reason? She ordered a huge tab during the lunch rush and was surprised it was taking a long time.
@anxiousPorcupine , geez people like that who attack employees are what's wrong in this world.
@Dovahgatr, here here.
@anxiousPorcupine , i work in a pharmacy and people get pissed off at me that their insurance doesnt cover something like vehemently cursing pissed off. Or if their doctor doesnt authorize a refill same response
@anxiousPorcupine , I work in a call center for an internet supplier that supplies internet for businesses. Anyway, one of my customers was yelling at me, and when she thought she was on hold she told one of her coworkers that "you have to yell at [my coworkers and I] to get [us] to do anything". Customers are dicks.
@anxiousPorcupine , my job is constantly running out of food because of poor management and I get yelled at for being a terrible server 😔
@anxiousPorcupine , I work at Mcdonalds and last summer our ice cream machine broke down for 3 months. Where I live Mcdonalds is the cheapest where you can get ice cream. So I had to listen to about 10-20 a day people bjtch and complain how they drove 15 minutes to get ice cream and I have the nerve to tell them there out. They passed like 10 places that sell ice cream. It's a little more than Mcdonalds but we can't be their only option!
@anxiousPorcupine , I'm a Manager in Training at my local Jimmy John's, and people have completely unrealistic expectations. During the middle of our lunch rush (approx. $1500-2000 in an hour) someone placed a pick up order for 50 sandwiches and showed up not five minutes later, and proceeded to cuss out our whole store for not having it done for him.
I can relate to this...One time, at work, a customer came up to me screaming and swearing. He was angry because service was slow and the person at the counter didn't give him the right amount of change back. So I said, "Sir, please calm down I'm just a donut."
@Glazed Donut, I laughed much harder than I should have!
@Glazed Donut, lmao, Thanks, I needed that laugh
Long story: When I worked at Walgreen's in the photo department, a lady wanted me to crop photo to include her husband in the photo. The husband was not in any part of the photo though. When I told her it was impossible, she said, "well he was standing right next to me when the picture was taken." She then berated the manager for hiring idiots like me and the company for not teaching employees how to photoshop.
@The Husky Ginger, jeez, dude. What's wrong with you? Just add the dude right in the frickin picture already!
To the people who dont try to make awkward small talk with me while im ringing them up, you da real mvp
All right I was browsing random awhile ago and I saw a comment that had some theories on why there are reposts I can only remember one but it was that stuckpixel has multiple people who go and look for pictures to upload and they don't see what the other people have picked. I'm not taking credit I just thought that this was interesting
Met a lot of people like this during my time at Gamestop. Parents of small children especially.
After 5 years in customer service, I can relate.
"Look i know it's not your fault and I'm not mad at you, but this rule is really stupid. You need to tell someone that this company has lost my business because of this stupid rule" "ok ma'am so why are you bit
@BarneySexOffender, So why are you a bit.. 'So why are you a bit...', what man?! What are you trying to say??
I had a woman who ordered something for store pickup and tried to pick up product without a valid ID (state, license, passport etc). She had a school ID and pitched a b!tch fit when I refused. My advice to her: "go buy alcohol with that ID and we'll see how valid it is"

I start school tomorrow :(
@ninja cheese, rip. Good luck buddy. What grade are you going into?
That's what the Nazis used as an excuse
@Sassy Rick Grimes, I think there is a difference between following whatever rule a customer is annoyed with and killing an entire group of people.
@Sassy Rick Grimes, I really do. One is an ethical issue, the other is just some stupid rule.
@Sassy Rick Grimes, whoa, Whoa, WHOA! ...what's wrong with Nazi's?!
This is how I feel being a gamestop employee
Does anyone here work for the TSA?
