Remember names.  Once I meet someone I can recognize their face for my entire lifetime but it will take awhile for me to remember their names.

Fail troll is fail.

I want to be a cop because I want to be a cop, not because I can't do anything else. I'd be finishing my bachelor's degree this year
had I not taken time off for Afghanistan.

policeman vs. fireman...look it up on you tube. if you are gonna be a cop you are going to have to get used to it. Firefighters always get under the skin of cops and vice versa. always a good working relationship but since people like firefighters more we rub it in. and our test is harder...why not finish the degree before being a cop? Helps on promotional tests. I had to finish mine after getting on the dept and its much harder later.

Obviously I'm finishing my degree before I apply for the
police. I'd be retarded not to. Unfortunately I'm eight
and a half time zones away from my university at the
moment, so that's temporarily on hold. I'll probably
have to work while doing my masters though. That's gonna
suck.

Maybe my mega dose of refined sugar and caffeine hasn't kicked in yet, but why do we need cops and fire fighters?

Why not combine the jobs into one? You know, purple uniforms and ladder trucks with dual use mounts for water cannons or LMG's?

Old joke is old.



Traffic directors? That's why we have Fire Police.

The fun of working in a Volly dept. is that many of our members ARE cops as well as firemen, so our 'working relationship' is a little more complex and much more natural.

And it helps me get out of speeding tickets locally.


Anyway...what I fail at:

Basic organization. I've got the organizational skills of a flash flood. I'm not talking 'planning' I'm pretty good at that, but simple organization. The desk where I have our bills is sorted into one massive jumble of 'paid' 'need to pay' and junk mail. Its not pretty.
