You fall asleep at your post and wake up without any clothes on. In the distance, you see someone wearing your uniform, skipping over a hill. The only thing worse than being fired? Being fired while naked.
You've caught up to 10 people a day while watching the line. Your supervisor gives
you a pat on the back, which causes you to whirl around and nearly attack him. Nice reaction time.
You passed your probationary period and are promoted. You are an honest-to-goodness Border Patrol Agent now.
You are making 70k a year and have earned the respect of the office. Because you're a great agent, not because you are making 70k a year.
You have intercepted millions of dollars of drugs from a dangerous cartel and are formally honored for your courage. You feel privileged to receive such an honor, but you do wish the formality of the event didn't require you to wear a tie.
