You know that phrase, “There’s something about a man in uniform”?  It’s totally true.

But it’s not just that they’re super attractive.  That “something” is also a little quirkiness that comes from sleep deprivation, a high-stress career, and quite frankly, close contact with some weird people.  Police officers live a weird life and we, as the women who love them, do so as well.

There are a lot of weird things you deal with as a police wife… but here are nine you might be able to relate to πŸ™‚

  6. When someone says they “can’t wait for the weekend” and you can’t relate at all.

  7. The uncomfortable look he gets when someone says “I know you from somewhere…” and he can’t place where.
