I have always wanted to do a RAOK for a police department... You all know by now, most likely, my love for policemen, LOL
I have been told though, they (understandably) dont take well to things like baskets being delivered like I have done for the fire department. And honestly, I get it.
I have bought lunch for an officer in line behind me before... but yesterday I realized, hey, I can give them a Starbucks gift card with a thank you. And that is what I did.
In Rancho Santa Margarita, there is a small subdivision of Orange County Sheriffs Department, by City Hall. What I didnt realize, was they close at 5pm. (The office, not the deputies on duty)
I got there at almost 5:30, and crossed my fingers there would be a deputy outside. And... there was. (Its my lucky week for that, since it happened at the fire station, too!)
So I gave him this, and said, "Since I think the office is closed, I would like to just give you this and to say thank you..." and he said I just missed it by 2 minutes... looked at me funny, and then read it and said, "Oh... thank you ma'am" and I said, "Thank You" and I went on my way.
