Gots to tell this one...about 9 yrs ago i was working the 11p to 7a shift...due to the terrible weather we were having we only ran one squad that partner went home early...snow was to the bottom of my cruiser door when i'd open it...i was staying on main roads, watching security mostly...and it was snowing and snowing and just kept on snowing...when off in the distance i could see flashing tail lights..i drove to the edge of our city and sure enough there sat a semi smack dab in the middle of the road...i rolled up, hit the overheads, and got out...i correctly walked my 5"5" 130 lb frame, with every hair in place, makeup perfect, long painted nails, i may of been a cop but never looked it..just because ya do a so called mans job don't mean ya have to look like it...i had my flashlight up and hand on my side arm. (i carried a 45 glock on my hip and a 9mm cig on the inside of my left i walked to the truck the trucker got out..."yea little lady?" he said...(little lady? ya big idiot i thought, you can't see this uniform and the fact i just got out of a squad car? EXCUSE ME?)...i cut him off and asked to see all his papers including the log sheet...he tried to humor me and asked why i wasnt' home warming somebodys bed at this hour...(needless to say this jerk was getting in trouble faster every time he opened his stupid mouth...)...i told him he would have to move his rig...he said the brake lines were froze...i told him he had to at least make contact with his mother company, a wrecker and put out his emergencys flares...he would hitch his pants up, look off in the distance and kept trying to act like i was more a pest then help...just as i was about to call a wrecker myself...back a ways came a set of headlights...he said to me then, "thank GOD, a real (a REAL?) cop is comming, now maybe you'll see how a man handles this"...i saw the plate numbers and had to start chuckeling...for it was our very own areas teeny weenie blonde, makeup, stacked, LADY MISSOURI HWY PATROL should of seen the look on that guys face when she stepped out...!...the trucker said, "TWO OF YA?"..."DAMN"...he threw his hat in the snow and promptly started calling his company about getting his rig moved...never said a more back talk...we "ladies of the blue"...stood in the snow, sipping our thermous coffee and talking about beauty shops...sure did hack him off!!!!!

Hollie Me thinkith tha Poof Pirate has been joined by a Sneaky Snake that does this doublin thingie. Had tha same thing, twice in a row and enough time break to preclude "nervous Finger Syndrom" or is that "Digital Dithering"?
Once over in Arizona,put up for tha Night,was Snowy and COLD,Motel was bout a Mile off tha Hiway,Truck had a Cat 1140 V8 engine, started out that Mornin,black smoke pourin out. I figured by tha time We hit tha Hiway it would be runnin clean. Hadn't gone two hundred yards when a Lady in Blue hauled Me over and whipped out Her Book. Explained about cold Cats and smoke which same wasn't goin too well with Her at all. I got thru talkin She said "You stay right here " jumped in Her car, took off drag style,down tha Road ,turned off and disappeared. Coupla minutes later here She come lickity split, slowed down and waved Me on with what I think was a smile. Got down ta where She had turned off and two Rigs was parked,figured She'd gone and asked Them if I was bein truthfull or "JUST BLOWIN SMOKE".

I wondered about that but kinda think mabe those fellers were regulars and SHe knew'em. Sides, time She got back ole Cat was cleanin up pretty good. Main thing mabe that I tried ta explain without soundin like She was an idiot even if She did have a problem with "whats tha differance twixt gas'n deisel" . Do remember She was............Blonde...Honest.

have to laff guys...i'm telling ya i always HATED pulling over a big rig...have to climb WAY up on stuff and then hang on for dear life...and i've had more than one trucker watch me approach his rig, then open the door and darn near knock me back down...done on purpose i'm sure...but id just smile and go about my business...i had to have a trucker friend go over his books with me, so i'd know what to look for and then spend a tour with the DOT guys...but as a rule, unless they were just running give em some leaway...i've had as many help me as give me a hard time...and after all...we prefered to it as "job security"....*wink & a grin*
