Superman's Career

Yes your right. Superman's career is being faster than a locomotive, leaping tall buildings in a single bound and so on.
Well, I have a little different view on his career. He really isn't the mild mannered reporter. He doesn't step into a telephone booth or a janitors closet to slip into his tights.

Here is the truth.

He recently retired from Law Enforcement. He worked as a mechanic for almost a year and decided that Law Enforcement is what he wants to do. As of tomorrow he will be back in full uniform and on patrol. I generally keep this to myself because of society.

Because of his job, we have to be extra careful in public. We will only visit certain places to eat, we sit in a certain spot, we go to some places in separate vehicles. I bet you think this is really silly. You have to remember that his job is serious. You have to remember that there are people that want to hurt him. They could follow us home and you can only imagine the rest. It happens. It isn't easy but most of it is common sense.

And now you know the real Superman's career.

These practices are all too familiar with me! When Hubby and I go somewhere to eat, I never sit down until he shows me the 'correct seat'. Oh the joys, and quirks of being married to law enforcement!

Im sure you will be all fine. What a brave man Superman is. Its always best to be doing what we are good at and what we believe in. Remember Karma, what goes around comes around. As long as he is fair and just, that is what will come back at him and his. If he is as good as you Alta, Im sure all will be well. xxx

Karisma, Superman is a wonderful person and he is a wonderful Deputy. I have seen him on some of the films from his work. And yes, we do believe in karma. Thank you for your wonderful words.

I am so glad to see another spouse of law enforcement. We put up with these little quirks because we know it is for our own safety. And I am sure that you feel the same way I do about it - because we just simply wouldn't have it any other way.

I can relate. When I was not working prisons, I was a Sheriff's Deputy for a few years. I always had to think security when I went out.

My BIL was law enforcement for a long time. He also had to think about security for his family at all times. I'm sure it was very stressful for him and he retired as early as he could. I don't know that that removed the threat though...

Ahem! Young lady! Where pray tell is your fun monday post? Hmmmm?

I was also a dispatcher and I always thought safety as a cop did. I tell you what though - if it saves your life it is worth all the hassle.
