For my job shadowing I went on a ride along with a cop. Going in I expected to see a lot of action, high speed chases, guns being fired, chasing down criminals, ect. But unfortunately it was not how I expected it to go. The job of a cop can have its fun/exciting days but it can also have its boring days. It just so happened that I ended up going on a boring day. Nothing really happened besides pulling over a few people on the roads. I learned that cops have it pretty easy unless they are having a busy day. If there isn’t much action going on they can just chill in their squad car, talk to other police officers, or get something to eat. Like most people say it is true that cops are always eating coffee and donuts. The first thing we did when I got in the car was make a Dunkin Donuts stop. I had a decent time on the ride along but I wish there was more action. I would highly recommend people picking a ride along for their job shadowing.
People have been known to be scared of this day. Bad luck just seems to be in the air, and most people are on edge. In the United States alone, it is estimated that between 17 and 21 million people dread the date to the extent that it can be classified as a phobia. Many believe that Friday is considered the day that Eve gave Adam the “apple” and they were kicked out of the Garden of Eden. Not only is Friday the bad part of this date but the number 13 is another symbol of bad luck. At the Last Supper there were 13 people at the table and that was the night Jesus was betrayed, with that said people have a believe that 13 is unlucky. This theory can have a big conception because so many people have strong believes in religion.
