I just don't get it!


Do you know what under cover means? At best you look like an off-duty cop. At worst you look like a cop who's uniform shirt got dirty so he had to wear his civvies on patrol.

You have obviously never been in a camp when someone who looks like jneilvindy walks in. I've heard plenty of people assume anyone who looks the least bit "military" or "cop" (whatever fits that stereotype in their head) is "undercover", even though they blatantly look like "a cop".

Do not give too much credit to the intelligence of the human race. No matter how many times people on this board warn newbies that the undercovers "have been going longer than you, have better costumes than you, and have a better art-car than you", people still assume they can spot them. If they were that easy to spot, no police department would use them.

In high school, white socks meant narc. Ah, the 70s, what a time.
Some sunshine, some dust, a little paint and a tutu. Yeah.

What's really ironic about that pic of me is that I took it while sitting outside in my car waiting for the husband who was a parole officer and US marshall to come out from his office and meet me for lunch 8)

Me I'm just a social worker who gives away people's hard-earned tax dollars!
