Having a good morning thus far, young lady?
Ouch! That sounds like where I work. I often work alone -- backup can be as far away as 20 miles. The worst I've gotten so far was a punch in the face -- and that was my own fault. I let myself get too close to him. Good news is, all it did was piss me off, so after tasing him several times, he was taken into custody
. It hurt later, but immeadiately all it did was piss me off -- adrenaline is awesome! I understand where your wife is coming from. It can be hard on our spouses. Nice to meet another LEO!
