Just got my dream job!!!

Postby bagobonez » Mon Jun 30, 2008 9:04 pm

Now I know many of you are going to poke fun and say I'm a little too brazen for this profession...

but I'm going to become a police officer! I start the police academy on July 9th. This has long been a dream of mine and I've been trying to get a job in this field for 5 years. On my 7th attempt I finally got through. Persistence really does pay off, just don't quit until your dream is yours!

WOOOT!

Alright now let the jokes begin.

No reason to make fun, it's a noble profession serving and protecting the public. I've actually been thinking about pursuing a career with the sheriffs dept. in corrections, thats what my dad did after he was out of the military. Anyway congrats and good luck. ;-D

Congrats and like Metroid already said it is an honorable profession. Definitely not a profession I would sneer at because of the sacrifice it entails and the fact that 90% of police officers could probably whoop my ass.

Congrats man. Thats a big step and I've heard some of my Dad's stories from the academy, so you're in for a tough/fun ride, but its worth it. PS, make sure you buy yourself a Surefire G2L to impress all the cop buddies :-b

You just want to be around those HSM.


Congrats, Bones!

I bet you're glad you didn't whoop all those people's asses and get arrested. I'm pretty sure you can't be a cop with an assault conviction on your record. :-° :-b

Good luck! ;-D

We had another cop here at the Cafe, but I forget his name and he hasn't been around in a while.

Congrats at a big accomplishment Bago. Something to be proud of for sure. ;-D

And since nobody's giving you a hard time, I thought I'd give you something to get you on your way.
