My crazy cousin texted me today, she is the same one who criticized police officers and Republicans during Thanksgiving. She texted me today, saying that police are not trustworthy with minorities and women. She is upset because her brother wants to be a police officer. What would you tell her if you were related to her?
Can you contribute to this?
Drama Queens are everywhere.
Get over it and support your family.
“Moved left no forwarding address.”
She says it would break her heart if he wore the uniform. I agree that there needs to be policing reform but she says that him being a police officer is non-negotiable. She fears that police officers rape women.
Tell her yes there are some bad cops. But not vey many in reality. By and large, first responders are well respected in society.
The Golden Rule:
Treat others the way YOU want to be treated.
It doesn’t always work, but it usually does.
When you show someone respect and consideration, PLUS keep yourself calm, that can go a long way to de-escalate most situations.
“What would you tell her if you were related to her?”
Make me a sammich. Of course.
What would I tell her?
Nothing, and I would immediately block her number - life is way too short to deal with people like this.
How difficult is that to do, GuavaCheesePuff?
She is allowing for fear and paranoia to be the guiding forces in her life. Most folks try to stay away from such negative trouble-magnets whenever possible.
Sometimes you attract what you put out.
It can start over nothing.
A simple look can provoke this sort of response:
“What the **** are YOU Lookin’ at, you dumb MF???”
We have all met people like that. The best thing is not to react at all or even give eye contact. This is somebody with
a big mouth and a weak ego.
Chris Rock is a funny man for sure. 8>)
I don’t think you’d want to eat one of her sammiches. Better idea is to call her local police and have them do a welfare check on her. ;-)
It’s not the job of the police to protect you.
“HE GOT WEEED! HE GOT WEEEED!”
"If you see a cop run the other way"?
I watched it too! Funny!
I would say...
“I hope he’s successful.” “After all, it should be family that puts you away for your own safety, and that of others.”
Oddly, you can set your telephone to **block incoming calls** from your CC.
Boom, problem solved....
