Okay, so check this out. I’m grabbing lunch at Baja Fresh on San Vicente and I see a cop having lunch by himself. He’s in uniform and all but he’s eating alone. So I go up to him and I say, “Hey, don’t mean to bother you while you’re eating, I just wanted to say I really appreciate what you do.”
He looks up at me with a big mouth full of Dos Manos burrito and says, “Excuse me?”
I explain, “I’m just saying I appreciate you putting yourself out there every day to keep people like me safe. I just thought you might like to hear what people are thinking.”
And then he says, and here’s the twist, ready for it?…
“Can I see some I.D.?”
Seriously. Can I see some I.D.
Like I’d have to be on crystal meth to say something nice to a cop. No wonder everyone hates cops.
