I Met a Water Patrol Officer and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt
That’s right, a new program is giving kids T-shirts as a reward for wearing life jackets:
Water Patrol officers and Corps rangers on Table Rock Lake will reward children wearing jackets on boats, beaches and docks by giving them a T-shirt with the message, “I got caught wearing my life jacket.” The program will continue throughout the summer.
Why don’t they hand out life jackets or flotation devices to the kids who aren’t wearing them? I doubt anybody would put on a life jacket for the chance to win one of those T-shirts. And a T-shirt never saved anyone’s life.
