So I was curious what field other practitioners work in?
I work at a liquor store and tend to have some interesting stories, one that just happened still has me laughing at the idiocy of it. My bosses are immediate family of each other and as such share the same views on the poor and or homeless (a very negative one) and the story today starts with them calling the cops unnecessarily on yet another homeless person.
I just arrived for my shift and in like 20 minutes, my boss is bitching about this one homeless guy, and he calls the police on him. After hanging up he tells me that he doesn’t feel like waiting for them to arrive, and not only asks me to tell a story with “facts” I can’t verify (I show up and immediately stock and the bosses have shown they have no qualms about lying to police or other authority, so I don’t trust it) and then tells me “if the cops ask tell them you’re [his name]”
I’m doing my best not to laugh in his face, and I tell him, “you know that’s illegal right? You want to leave me your ID too see if I can pass off as you when they ask for it?” He tries to tell me it’s fine, and then we get into talking about what the law actually requires to remove the man from the premises. Which police have explained in depth to his dad (my other boss) and he doesn’t believe me. Regardless I’m not paid enough to even risk a citation for these assholes let alone a misdemeanor XD I said I’d tell the cops the truth I’m not sure what happened I didn’t see anything, and was busy stocking cups.
As he gives up and says “just have them get rid of him” before walking out the door, lo and behold, who arrives? That’s right, the 5-0, only to tell him the same things I just told him even down to the legal parts XD. But an employee knowing what they’re talking about? Nah it must be a coincidence, I’m fucking dying
Anyways what do y’all do for work?
PS if this doesn’t belong feel free to remove or relocate it. Stay blessed guys
