Uniform Stories

Not too long ago, I was con­tacted by a young man claim­ing to be from some web­site and he liked my writing.


Ini­tially, I hov­ered over the delete but­ton because I antic­i­pated the typ­i­cal “You write good.  Our site will be very com­ple­men­tary to yours.  For to write some things many read­ers enjoy, you shall love out site.”

For what­ever rea­son (I prob­a­bly had a cou­ple a beers in me), I read on.

This email was a bit dif­fer­ent.  He ref­er­enced actual posts and The Crossover Show.  Dude even claimed he watched the damn thing.  I don’t even watch it.  I’m like Bobby De Niro (Bobby D, if you’re as close as we are) like that.  We don’t watch our own stuff.

I got to the end of the email and it appeared to signed from some­one that was flu­ent in my mother tongue, English.

Again, I had an inkling of doubt, but I clicked through to the “web­site” prepar­ing to click off quickly and shake my head like an Etch-a-Sketch if the visions that appeared were of the soirée of sour fruit vari­ety (Happy Medic knows what I’m talk­ing about).

Alas, my mis­giv­ings were off-base.  One thing led to another and I actu­ally had a Skype con­ver­sa­tion with that young man.  He pur­ported to hail from the East coast and was will­ing to stay up well past his bed time to chat.  Dur­ing our con­ver­sa­tion, he laughed at my jokes and stroked my ego offered some salient points regard­ing his inquiry as to my inter­est in writ­ing some orig­i­nal con­tent for UniformStories.com.

I teased the new gig on the FB page for a bit and announced the new venue on Fri­day this past week.  If you missed it, how­ever, you can see the intro video below (fea­tur­ing a cameo from the Wife):

I’m look­ing for­ward to cre­at­ing some new con­tent at US and get­ting back into a more reg­u­lar thing here as well.  They’re all about shar­ing the love, so do your­self a favor and check out UniformStories.com and take a gan­der at all the uni­formed servicemen/women that are putting their lives on the line for us day in and day out.

I am a motor officer, blogger, and financial coach. I help first responders create a unique and specific personal finance spending plan so they can improve their quality of life, reduce the necessity of overtime, and spend more time with their families.

Please note: I reserve the right to delete comments that are offensive, off-topic, or just simply stupid. Snark, however, is not only welcome, but encouraged. Cheers...

  1. Are you the ONLY Motor Cop in Kali­for­nia that doesn’t have a take-home bike?

    Or just for illus­tra­tion purposes?
