“I don’t get much sleep at night. My daddy comes into my room and wakes me up so I can make him happy!” This was during recess when I was a long term substitute teacher and I had woken her up to play outside. She commented this when I commented about her being so tired. After she went outside I headed to the principal office and reported it to the principal. After school we reported it to Child protective services. She was removed from her home and her father was charged with rape of a minor (after the police did an investigation). This was one of the scariest things I’ve heard from a child.
Many restaurants do this. I was married to a cop for over 20 years. While on duty, they will give officers free meals and coffee. Two reasons, out of respect, but mainly to encourage their presence in their business. It keeps their business safe. Your business is less likely to be a target to be robbed or a site of a mass shooting if there are cops inside. Be grateful they are there.
