You Know....

You Know You've Been A Dispatcher Too Long When:

You eat more fast food than leftovers/homemade meals
You have forgotten how to read a clock in anything but military time
U can't write a ltr w/o it being abbd
You answer your home phone or cell phone, "9-1-1, What's your emergency?"
The thought of working a Monday through Friday 8:00 am - 5:oo pm job terrifies you
You can talk clearly with food in your mouth, after all, we only eat between phone calls
You dream in code: 10-code, 11-code, Vehicle Code, Penal Code, Municipal Code

8-5 is overrated!!! Really.. I like having the movie theater all to ourselves! and grocery shopping it a breeze! :-) Not to mention when we're on the road traveling.. everyone else is usually still asleep!

You know the exact address of every bar in your jurisdiction... believe in the ariel spraying of Prozac and birth control...

Job with normal hours... shudder the thought!
