Smile CO's and their mysterious ways ;)

There are other posts like this, but I just wanted to get our story out there

I served 50 days in a county jail and 2 in a city jail waiting to be transferred. In the time I was in county it wasn't bad, though some CO's were more 'sticklers' than others.

I will never forget city jail because of one particular CO. I was there with my fiance' and it was the first time I'd ever been in jail, as well as him. It was scary, being thrown into a cell, not knowing anyone and not knowing how he was doing, if he was just as scared, lonely. I remember crying myself to sleep the first night.

The next morning a CO whose name I wish I would've asked for came in to serve us breakfast. He called me by my name, which I thought odd because he didn't call anyone elses, and asked me how I was doing. I told him that I was okay, trying to get through and stay strong. He told me that I was loved and to keep my faith, I thanked him and he gave me my breakfast and left the pod.

It wouldn't be until a few weeks later while I was in county I received a letter from my fiance. In it he talked about the nice CO in city who he had given a message to give me, that I was loved and to keep my faith.

This man could've lost his job sending messages between inmates, but he did a good deed and helped me to get through a tough time and for that I can't begin to thank him.

So if you've never been to jail or are on your way and worrying, remember that they're not all bad. They are people, doing their jobs, whichever way they deem it needs to be done, but there are some who are helpful and want to remind you that this isn't forever and to keep your head up.

Just wanted to share

I have to agree not all CO's are bad. Some are in there to help in any way they can. There are some who try to make a little bit of a difference. My brother had a few of those and he is four years out.
