I do have to say, I don’t usually call the police “cops,” I think it’s a little offensive. I usually try to call them by their title, “Officer,” “Detective,” “Lieutenant,” or whatever their official position is. I try to pay attention and remember it. I want to be respectful to the women and men who help protect us, and I know they’ve worked hard to reach their position.
This is why I felt really bad about not remembering to respect the Deputy, by not using her title, when I said, “I can’t reach my driver’s license unless you hold my beer.”
