  • Yeah, that is really scary! My hubby is a helicopter pilot, and he's had some close calls - so I would say it can be dangerous at times.

  • My husband works for the railroad and I am a counselor. Many of my clients are sex offenders, murders, drug addicts, etc. I would say we both have fairly dangerous jobs.

  • My husband's a Correctional Officer...his jail is medium, however he's on a dorm with 60 inmates and him alone. They aren't in their own jail cells, able to walk around, and they have committed the same crimes as in a max. Freaks me out a bit! I'd rather have him in a Max where they're all in their own cells!
