Sgt Garrett once asked me to help cover a shift on his squad. Being in narcotics I did not have a marked car so he found me one to borrow for the day. I was excited to earn the overtime and try and make a difference.

Two hours into the shift, I had wrecked the marked cruiser on accident. When I told him what I had done thinking I was about to get a butt chewing, he just started laughing.
