You Might Be...A Barney...

You Might Be a Small Town Cop If:
1.) You ever got a call from the Mayor asking why you stopped his cousin because he heard it on the scanner.
2.) You got on the radio and asked another cop if you know where Bobby Ray is and Bobby Ray shows up at the station five minutes later because he heard you were looking for him.
3.) Your backup had to be called at home, then had to go down to the station to get a patrol car, then drive 20 miles to your location (and if you’re the only one available and the bar fight call comes in, well, you handle it.)
4.) You can get a middle-aged bully to shut down by asking, “What would your momma think if she knew how you’re acting?”
5.) Instead of giving an address, the dispatcher gives the location as “next to the old Smith house that burned down 10 years ago.”
6.) You ever had to use your own car because both squad cars were in the shop, or drove a police car in such bad shape you’d have pulled it over if anybody else was driving something that bad
7.) Instead of calling dispatch, the citizen calls your house and asks your kid to get you to come over.
8.) You ever had to do all your reports with a ballpoint pen and carbon paper.
9.) You’ve had to give the phone number of the diner where you took your break because you didn’t have a portable radio.
10.) You knew — or know — the names of every deputy and trooper in the county.
