Just finished another week. My car broke down on Tuesday, and of course my employers don't care about that, they just want me to make sure I can get to work by any means necessary, so I had to rent a car that night so I could get to work the next day. Since it was so late, the only place that had any cars for rent was the airport, so that took ALL night, and all of the next night for returning the car to the airport, etc. Cracked radiator, going to replace it tomorrow hopefully. Luckily a friend of mine (pretty much my only friend in my new city) let me borrow his car because he just quit his job and was going to stay at home for the rest of the week.
Had two more people quit. One guy quit because he was from puerto rico and he had a hard time reading in English and failed the first test and just decided it was going to be too tough I guess. The other guy quit because he's a pastor and either decided the duties of a police officer would conflict too much with his religious values or he decided this job would be too demanding on his time to allow him to continue to be a pastor. So we're down to 48 now from the original 54. Earlier this week my knee was hurting so bad I could barely put weight on it. Lucky for me we didn't have any P.T. from Tuesday until today and it had a chance to get to feeling better before we did PT again today. Kind of weird. I'm quick to get little nagging injuries but I'm quick to get over them too.
