It's has rained here all day just outside Wagga, and the local copper just came over and asked if he could borrow me and our 4WD to pull a highway patrol car out of a bog. He had been sitting on the side of the Hume Highway down a little embankment with his hair dryer (radar) and went to chase a car and din't move an inch........ The good old 4wd had to come to the rescue again. You have to laugh, but it happens to the best of us. I'm hoping he lets me off if I get caught speeding.........fingers crossed. He told me I had to keep it quiet, but for the ones who know me (Andrew & Jen) I find it really hard to keep a secret.

Yeah well, a nice kind hearted person like me just can't say no. We have some really good friends as coppers and I tell you what they put up with alot of CRAP from the public and a lot of abuse where they really don't deserve it. Some do deserve it and some don't but they are only human like we are and they bleed like we do too! I must say though we got a good laugh out of it.............We've all needed a tow out at some time or another, just some times are more embarrasing than others............lol

In addition to Trucksters comments I would have added:

"..and it probably isn't roadworthy, what with the 35"s, 7" lift, and so on...."

I had a similar thing many years ago driving up through port macqarie a fellow was flagging me down at night with a tourch so I pulled over. It was a copper stuck on dewy grass booked me for speeding then asked me to give him push of the grass.
I helped him and then he raced of to book someone else.

Not even a thanks.

All the best

Awwww Eric maybe you wern't smiling right. I got alot of thanks from these 2 fellas. You think about it, 2 guys stuck in the mud and 1 lady with her 4wd turns up to get you out. I put the tow bar on, I got the straps out, I put the hubs in and I was the one who showed them where to put the strap on their XR. I dont think they wanted to get their uniforms dirty. How embarrassed would they have been......LOL. I still got thankyou's as I was leaving..........The coppers out here in the country are pretty friendly and we all stood there having a good laugh about it. But I spose they are goingt o be friendly when I've got something they so badly need. LOL

Hi Geoff & Karen
You should publish his name and email so we can send him a note to let him know that its not that bad to be stuck in the mud .I'm sure his fellow officers would like to send him a note too. lol

I've got a couple of funny tales similar to that although since its a family forum I can't say much more about ione of them here. The other instance, I was driving a bit of a bomb and came over a rise only to get pulled over by copper who flagged me down. I said that I wasn't speeding as the bomb wouldn't go that fast. (It was a Nissan 4WD ute for Roachies benefit) He had run out of fuel and needed a ride back into town for a can of juice. He asked me to keep it quiet but it was just too hard to contain that kind of information. hahahahaaha

Mrs Diamond, well what can I say. And you have never ever had a speeding fine. I think you would be lying if you said you hadn't. Every moron like yourself and me and everybody else speed now and then and you for one cannot sit there and say you never speed. And every moron like yourself and me and plenty others have probably had an accident, or are you one of these so called perfect drivers.
Get a life and wake up Mrs Diamond. How can you sit there and call someone a moron when you dont know them.........tell me that.

I think you would be lying if you said you hadn't. Every moron like yourself and me and everybody else speed now and then and you for one cannot sit there and say you never speed.
as a matter of fact im considered a slow driver by mr diamond.

And every moron like yourself and me and plenty others have probably had an accident,.
ive been in 2 small accidents not my fault both caused by morons like you.

or are you one of these so called perfect drivers.

no such thing as a perfect driver only a care full one

Get a life and wake up Mrs Diamond. How can you sit there and call someone a moron when you dont know them.........tell me that.

as a matter of fact untill recently i was a paid member but i wont go into that.if you have got something to say say it im sure theres nothing you could say that would upset me in fact it would give me a giggle.

if i feel a paid or unpaid member has made a stupid remark i will say my bit.

i was a member long before you were but that didnt make me feel like i owned the site while i was.for some reason you seem to think being a member gives you the right to post moronic things but only members can reply to your C.R.A.P.grow up you silly woman.

You never know Andrew, but it just annoys me that you put an innocent post on here and every one has to have a negetive attitude on here and say something smart. I thought it was supposed to be a friendly forum, but obviously not. I must admit I thought Mrd Diamond was a nice lady too until she called me a moron, in which I dont appreciate. Anyway I'm over that now. See ya

your right there karen mrs diamond is a lovely person its me mr diamond who isnt.
not being a member any longer dosnt alow me to change my name so im stuck with mrs.
the main thing that anoyed me was the fact you were crossing your fingers hoping to get let of from speeding because you did a police oficer a favour.
then i read some where else you going on about how good a job the police do and that familly that lost a couple of parents.
the point i was making is if morons continue to speed and the police have to spend more and more time hiding on the side of the road instead of more important things.
if it wasnt you who put the silly bit in i would have called who ever put it in a post a moron.

Reminds me of an incident I had in a company-owned Falcon in the early 90's.
I'd gone out to Wamboin, north of Canberra to do a property inspection. It's one of those yuppy areas where people have 5 acres etc. Down the dirt driveway I went (about 300 metres long). When I turned to go back out I found I had no traction on the wet, leaf-covered drive-way.
I rounded up some sticks etc and after several failed attempts, I decided the only way i was gunna get out was to drive the accelerator from outside the car (automatic) using a longish branch in my right hand to prod the throttle and using my left hand to push a handfull of sticks under the back wheel as it gently spun. As soon as it started to move onto the sticks, I jumped in and gave it a bootfull and got out.
It would have been quite a sight.
Nobody was there at the time.

Hi Karen
Sounds like you have stirred up some of those city slickers who wouldn't even know the people next door - no wonder they feel so at home in the outback, rushing around at the "legal" limit on dirt roads showering everybody in rocks and gravel.
What they don't realise is that in the country we know who are neighbors are, the butcher, the newsagent etc etc and dare I say it the local plod.
Its also those same boys in blue who attend all those fatal smashes in your area including that Cruiser that left 2 poor kids smashed up with no parents and so on.
I'd like to think that not all coppers are bastard's and not all bastard's are coppers.
Its no good getting too serious, lifes too short.
PS. Contact Kerry if your interested in a Long weekend trip. Can't remember whats on but he's organising something.

Cheers
Bob L

Yes Bob I have done it again. Put an innocent post on here and everyone has to bag it. Obviously it is getting that way on this forum that you cant just post a message without some drop kick coming back and knocking evryone else. Your about right too in what you say. It makes you laugh, they all hang shiit on the boys in blue, but who is the first one they call when sonny jim has got in to a fight and been bashed, or someone breaks into their 4wd and pinches something. Yep the boys in blue. Yep and who is the one that goes to the terrible accident on the Hume in January where the parents and 2 out of 4 kids were killed. Who is the one who has to feel for their pulses and see how many are dead. Yep the boys in blue again. When people need them, they forget about all thebleepthey have hung on them and all those names they have called them. I decided today that I am not going to pay are subs for this site again. there are too many idiots on here that have got to many usless things to say. It's a shame though cause there are some terrific people on here that we have come friends with too! I just cant be bothered checking it. Anyway this follow up will start all them wankers off again now...lol. give them something to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Bob L and Karen

It is funny how everyone gets their bee in a bonnet about something. It is true I reckon that city folk know their neighbors less than country folk in general but there are some exceptions! We are going to Sydney with people two doors up in 8 days time to see the Lion King. 10 to 16 ladies in our street go out to lunch about once a month. We have street dinner nights out once a quarter where there are usually 16 - 20 from our street and go out to a restaurant. We have a Christmas party at someones house. We do try and get to know each other.

It is a fair point though - I am sure that everyone wants to be friends with their neighbors - it is fun meeting up with everyone and going out. But I reckon people in the city mostly have forgotten how to be friendly to their neighbors - we are too self conscious to go and meet em or do stuff with em. And how come your asking Karen out for the long weekend?? She should be going to Berry
