I haven’t always been an English teacher. Indeed, I have done quite a few jobs, including two stints as a police officer. When I look back on my days as a police officer, I can recall many incidents that I’d like to share with you as anecdotes to help you develop your reading, listening comprehension, and vocabulary skills.
Today’s anecdote is about an incident I dealt with while working on my beat in the small village of Saint Martins, in Shropshire, England. I was, at the time, the village policeman, and spent my days driving around my beat in my trusty old Land Rover. It was a very sleepy village, and exciting incidents were few and far between. I should warn you that the incident I’m about to relate to you is not particularly exciting. Nevertheless, it’s certainly one incident in my policing career that I shall never forget.
