35 long years on the job. You only did it because your father did it. And his father. A family of Police Officers.
At least your career had plenty of highlights. That award back in 2004, and of course, serving in the same Force as your son.
But there have been some lows too. The job almost cost you your marriage.
Then, of course, there are the ones that got away. That's what has kept you up at night, for years.
One day left. And then it'll be you they're sipping champagne for at the retirement party, rather than all of the colleagues you've seen come and go over the last three and a half decades.
Just a 12 hour shift ahead. Keep your head down, shake the hands, and retirement awaits.
