One of my FTO officers (trains new cops in patrol) came into dispatch, where I work, looking completely disgusted. "Look at this!" He said pointing to a long silvery streak on his dark blue uniform pants, running from the cuff to mid-thigh. "Do I want to know what that is?" I asked. "My trainee, took so long to write this guy a speeding ticket, that while I was standing on the curb waiting, I noticed a snail had crawled up my leg. A snail!"
