Getting too old is on a distinguished road

Before I left that city, I had gotten extremely tired of the harassment and being written up for anything, so I had began to document every time I was singled out for disciplinary action when anybody else did something that I was being wrote up for, but they were not. I had a folder that was about 1” thick in about a month, and I had already spoken to an attorney about filing a suite against the city. But the rule of thumb is, if you sue one city you’ll never work for another one, so I let it drop. As it turned out, one of our female officers here had filed a suite against her previous department for sexual harassment, and not only did they hire her knowing that, the Chief was actually hoping she would win. Oh well.
There are no problems, only challenges and opportunities.
