Breaking Stereotypes

Here in Metrocity, we are very aware of diversity issues and as street Officers regularly take a moment to challenge stereotypes.
As part of this drive for equal inequality for all, a couple of younger female PCs have been doing the kind of thing that one would usually associate with males.

There are two entrances to our custody suite; the way in from the yard (where the naughty people are brought in from), which is a set of secure metal gates, easily opened from the outside to let people in but locked from the inside.
There is also a set of double doors, in an airlock format, that leads from the cells to the nick. They work together so that one can not be opened unless the other is closed - hence the airlock idea.

The two delightful young ladies mentioned above have been known to play a 'game,' where they will pass wind whilst in the airlock area, thereby trapping the odours between the doors for later people to enjoy.

See? Metropolitan Police: Breaking down barriers, challenging stereotypes.

**EDIT** I post this secure in the knowledge that even if the girls involved read this and realised who I was, they would have more potential for embarrassment than I would if they went public...

Farting in the caged area on the way in would probably constitute a breach of a prisoner's PACE rights. So I'm afraid you're just going to have to swallow hard and get on with it.

Diversity .. 2 Females PC's .. Doing what males usually do but together ...

I was nearly getting worked up there !

Years ago I was patrolling the town on foot with a colleague. (Two PCs on foot gives a clue as to how many years ago).
As we walked round we met a young lady who was in the 'Specials. She was very prim and proper and had a public school accent. Apart from the Specials she lived a sheltered life, but she was polite and friendly.
her parents owned a shop in the town and she invited us, 'Come back to the shop for a cup of tea, it's freshly made. Her very words. So we did.
We went behind the counter through a door into a little store room which featured a sink drainer kettle tea pot - and a toilet. The toilet door was shut.
Then it hit us. The smell coming under the toilet door was disgraceful. Like a long dead whale. I swear the paint was beginning to blister. We both felt sorry for the girl, who must have been completely embarrassed and we tried to pretend that nothing was wrong.
We drank the tea as fast as anyone can drink hot tea and we were on the last gulp when we heard the toilet roll being pulled, a contented groan, then the cistern flush.
The door opened and out came her Dad, looking very red faced and guilty.

My Grandmother would have a saying for every situation. After reading your post there's one that comes to mind.

“It’s an ill wind that blows no good"

Maybe not in the context she would have meant but this definitely sounds like an ill wind.

In the weapons training range, the airlock had digital locks. The great `prank` was for some wag on the staff to change the inner code by one digit and then liberally lace said airlock with CS (for those unaware of this abbreviation, it stands for "Cry Shit"). Picture the final scenes from `Alien`.........

Old BE said...

Hogday, do you think there is any situation where you would ignore the opportunity to mention that you were the firearms guru of all England?

I'll shut up.

Old BE said...

No don't!

we had one of those "airlocks" at the last shop i worked for, controlled remotely by a guard. thankfully no one thought of that little bit of jollity.

To be a noble benign being is to have a philanthropic of openness to the world, an cleverness to trusteeship undeterminable things beyond your own pilot, that can front you to be shattered in very exceptionally circumstances on which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly impressive relating to the fettle of the righteous autobiography: that it is based on a trustworthiness in the up in the air and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a weed than like a sparkler, something fairly fragile, but whose extremely special handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.
