YAY KIMA! I love that show. :)
Timely, for me.I was just at the bank this afternoon; I'd come straight from work so was wearing my uniform. I work for a state wildlife agency.Guy in front of me: Game warden?Me: No, I'm a biologist.Guy: I was gonna say, a lady game warden? I never seen one of them before.Yeah... there are in fact female wildlife officers in my state, and I made sure to set him straight on that. I wish I'd seen this post; I could have added, "Women have been cops for a hundred years!"
We've come a long way and we're still pushing hard!!
Yeah, last time I was on hospital duty with an inmate a guy asked if my gun was real and if he could touch it. *g* Yep, it sure is buddy and bigger than yours. *wink* Then he asked me out.
I work as a civilian in a police station. One of the older ladies I work with is an ex-police officer. She was issued with her Queensland Police uniform in the 1970s, and the uniform included a regulation handbag. A handbag, rather than a gun, because it was expected all she would do was look after lost children and battered women. Thankfully times have changed!
