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.




My organization skills are horrid. My desk has so much stuff on it my roommate cant believe I actually work on homework and such there. But for whatever reason, I can still find whatever I am looking for easily...

Embarrassingly enough, I fail at spelling Wednesday.

It's only embarrassing because I failed at it right in front of my boss, who regards (regarded :[ ) me with high intelligence for my education level.

Remembering locations and how to get to places driving.   I enjoy driving and have never had a wreck, but god, if I've been to a place less than three times I will NOT remember how to get there  (unless its real close).  Weird.

Only reason SOME people like firefighters more then police is because firefighters are reactive in nature, where as police try to be proactive.

You see police on a daily basis. You see firefighters on your worst day, so you view them as heroes.

Quote and our test is harder...


Right, because knowing the difference between a froth over and boil over fire is harder then memorizing countless federal, state, and local laws...

I can relate.  When I get tired I tend to read things in a manner that the letters in words, and sometimes the words in the sentence, are in the wrong order.

Embarrassingly enough, being tired (or slightly inebriated) also effects my speech in the same way sometimes.

I fail at not spending 20 minutes of my day looking over this forum.

I can't explain it.

I just do it.

Pooping at good times.  It always hits me when it's entirely impossible for me to go.  Then I don't have to go when the facilities are available.

Also, I fail at school.  I'm ranked in the bottom 50 in my class of 600.

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

I have never heard of Fire Police.


Fire Police are what some towns and citys have, it helps save resources. Cops carry turnouts and respond to fires. A town close to where I live ran into a problem of people setting a fire and then robbing houses on a different street.

Dude if you are seriously taking such offense to a little teasing you really should be a cop. I dont honestly believe that firefighters are better or that cops are dumber...its just part of the job, we jab eachother and horse around. Lighten up and "move along please"

so firefighters arent better or smarter, but cops inherently have anger problems?

just curious, that statement seems to contradict itself a bit to me.
