Taxis, cops, and new opportunities!

Howdy folks....How's it goin??
I've not been in's 2:09, and I only got home from work an hour ago and I finished at 11pm! My bloody Taxi never showed up, leaving me stranded! I ended up sharing a taxi with a friend who finished at midnight, but hers didn't turn up till gone 12:30...GRRRRRR!!
Today, I've almost been recruited into the police force and had to pose as a witness at work. I witnessed a member of staff being AWFUL to a duty manager, just because she NICELY asked him NOT to chew gum at the tills. He just stared at her and carried on chewing. She asked him again, but he insulted her. I felt so sorry for her. She's known as an 'evil bitch' at work by people, but that's only because she's strict with things and HAS to do her job. If you're right with her, she's right with you, and although she's complained at me ONCE, I consider her a friend and we always have a laugh. So anyways, he put in a formal complaint about her attitude towards him, and I've had to come forward and say that she didn't do or say anything wrong. She didn't even have a tone to her voice. She was nice as pie!!
But anyways, I served an on duty police man today, and as he was cute, we got chatting (I'm a sucker for a man in uniform). After a few minutes chatting, I jokingly said 'Next time you come in, bring a spare uniform and badge and I'll come and work with you'. He looked at me kinda excitedly and asked if I'd wanna join. I said yes, but don't have much luck getting an application form, so he pulled a card from his back pocket and handed it to me. It's the recruitment line. He says they'll take me on now 'cos they're 'Crying out for people'. I can't believe my luck! I'll keep ya posted.
Can ya imagine me on the beat?? I can picture it now.....Two muggers running from the scene of the crime......'PC Ste' in hot pursuit, holding onto his utility belt yelling 'Come back ya buggers.......I got a brolly and I'm not afraid to use it!!'.....One mugger falls, scraping his knees...I yell, 'Oooooh, are ya alright love? That looked well nasty!!'....LOL!!
Another thing is, a guy I work with is thinking about setting up his own business soon and he wants to know if I'll go and work for him. He's had managerial experience before and wants to go into running his own cafe type place. I can't believe all of these opportunities coming my way!!
But...I'm sticking with my singing in the long run. Getting REAL lessons soon and can't wait!!
Anyways, that's all for now...Hope all's going well out there!
