I saved a life!!

The Life Saver

While doing foot patrols at an apartment complex and armed only with a huge flashlight.

As I was making my 10pm round, I heard some thumping noises coming from behind a dumpster. Grabbing up my flashlight as a weapon, I approached said dumpster.

Come to find out, a cat had gotten its head stuck in a plastic peanut butter jar.
It was thrashing around trying to get that thing off of its head!

Being the compassionate person that I am, I walked over and held the jar down.
Sure enough, "BOOP!" out pops the cat's head.
With a muzzle covered with peanut butter, the cat takes off!

When I made my hourly call in, I asked if I got extra pay for saving a life.
Thinking I meant a human life, they freaked!!

Explaining that I had saved a cat from a ferocious peanut butter jar the line went silent
for awhile, but I could hear some chuckling in the background.

" No Jim, you don't get paid extra for saving a cat! Get back to work!"
