Cop #1: "What do you know about it our training?"
Me: "I know about it. That should be enough. Did you get it?"
Cop #1: "Sure, we got it, but I still think it's stupid to be doing that."
Cop #2: "Wow, he's a cutie. What's his name?"
Me, to my 2 month old son: "Don't say a word without a lawyer, son." I thought that might get a laugh out of them, but it didn't. Oh well.
Cop #1: "What do you do for a living, anyway? Are you in security or some crap?"
Me: "My job is none of your business, officer."
Cop #2: "We're just curious, is all."
Me: "That's fine. I just don't talk about my work with people I don't know."
Cop #2: "But, we're cops. You have no reason not to trust us."
Me: "Did you really just use the 'Trust us we're the police' line on me? After your partner tried to lie to me and tell me I had to conceal?"
Cop #1: "Smart guy, huh? Yeah, you look REAL smart, with your pot belly, and baby stroller, eating ice cream with a big old gun strapped to your hip. You wanna carry a gun? Try losing weight and becoming a cop, smart guy."
Me: "Oh, so your department put a freeze on hiring Neandertals?"
Cop #2: "There's no reason for the attitude, mister."
Me: "Tell your pet caveman that."
Cop #1: "You're real fuckin' funny, you know that? You keep on being funny, you ******* idiot. Next time you need to call 911, make sure you tell the operator something real funny. Maybe your jokes will help save your life, you fuckin' jerkoff. Have a nice fuckin' day."
I sat there as they stomped off. My ice cream was starting to melt...
Well, that's certainly one way to handle a situation like that.
No disrespect to you is meant by what I am about to share, but I would have attempted to handle this situation in a manner as to not insult and infuriate those who are sworn to protect and serve me.
It has worked for me for the 65 years of my life. I've never been disrespected by any LEO, never been arrested, and have, therefore, never seen the inside of a jail cell.
I intend to keep it that way.
