  1. Sure wish one of the several local towns I applied to would stop dragging their feet and make a
    friggin decision.... Yes/No..... I don't care! Just tell me SOMETHING so I can stop circling in this
    holding patterns and make other plans! <sheeze>

    BUT the good news is I now have two solid offers for employment in my hands. Though both are
    conditional upon passing a Psychological Review and blood/urine/hair-test for substance use, I have
    no reason to doubt passing ;-) The drawback being both of them are for departments over 1,500 away.
    Guess I gotta go to where the jobs are ;-(

    The decision I'm wrestling with now is: Do I take the cushy job in an "easier" beat for less pay,
    less chances for promotion, etc. or go for the tough, inner-city with dope dealers and pimps,
    hookers, gang bangers, a homocide every night, etc., etc. position.

    Can you roughly (or precisley for that matter) say where the offers are. I'm sure many of the folks
    here can help you decide by offering up evaluations of the riding opportunies near each one. Because
    after all, it's really the only criteria that matters.

    I've already scoped out the riding in both locations. Not nearly as nice as being 5 minutes from
    Bear Brook and 10 minutes from FOMBA, but not too horrid either.

    Yes, my first choice, outside of remaining local.... I'm still waiting for my offer, should be
    _REAL_ soon. (Verbally, they said it would be in writing, next week.)

    OK, but surely, that's way at the bottom of the list of priorities, with not getting yerself _dead_
    or maimed in the first place john! I'm sure your family would agree, no?

    Uh.... Have you posed this question to SWMBO? If not, please allow me to stand "in loco espousis"

    "Are you nuts? What makes you think you're expendable? That good insurance or a larger paycheck
    could in any way, shape or form make up for your children growing up without you?" <spouse mode off>

    And not only that, "less chance for promotion" is just statistics. It doesn't take your personal
    abilities and character into account. No matter how small the pail, the cream will always rise
    to the top.

    They did balk at a buch of my colllege credits, I'll need to re-do them. The story goes: It was a
    2-year Technical College that went out of business shortly after I graduated. They _were_ fully
    accredited at the time I attended, but still... they don't want to accept the credits because the
    school is not on their list of "approved schools" well no sh!t it's not on the list! they went out
    of business in 1991!!!! <Don't get me started.. uggh!>

    At least they would be paying for the classes and for my classroom time. But I in the meantime I
    will not recieve my full commision until I fulfil thier "Completed Semester Hour requirements".

    Yeah, I'm kinda cheesed off about the whole deal.
