    Anyway, I thought the second circuit appeal was based on not having a monitor oversee the hiring process in the future.
    In case the "city pulls a fast one"? Would that be anything like a guy who got a, oh, I don't know, 85 on the ridiculously simple entrance exam backdooring his way onto the job via lawsuit? That kind of fast one?

    By all means...defer. Permanently.

    You cannot hold the rails at all during both sessions. You can backhand the rail for balance or stability but you cannot grasp the rail.

    Pretty much all I was asking was if you could stop arguing with the PH people so that we could focus on the important things here. It's a senseless argument. I'm pretty sure I'm not wrong about that.

    This isn't a p.i.s.s.ing contest here, it can just be frustrating to sift through all the silly arguments of things we can do nothing about. Which unfortunately I have let myself become a part of for no reason so that's it for me on this.

    Understand this: I WILL take a sh*t on you every chance I get from now on. I don't care how you feel about it. Your best bet would be to let this go as is.
    Did you just say you wanna take a dump on me?

    Don't ask for anything; you haven't earned the right to yet. You're wrong even if you're right (which you're not). You don't get to dictate what gets said and to who. Just go with the flow and you'll get along fine.

    Bro, go be a child somewhere else. The adults are trying to talk here. What I'd like to do is make sure clowns like you stay off my job, but I obviously can't do that online. Laugh it up here while you can; if you actually make it to a firehouse think of me every time you take a bucket, scrub 15 food encrusted pots and sweep the same spot on the floor while everyone else has coffee. Know that I'll be laughing at you even though I'll never know who you are.

    Since there's no hope of you becoming a fireman like spiderneck or hopeful, I no longer care to try and straighten you out. So this'll be my last word to you. You may go now.

    OK so I'm looking for some advice.

    I had been scheduled to take the psych exam on april 20. I already finished with my investigator. But I still haven't been given my medical date, or CPAT date. So, it turns out that april 20 is a day that I am opening the store at work, so I can't take off. The only way I could take the psych would be to call out, so I decided to reschedule my psych test date (it is now going to be on may 18).

    Do you think that I should try and reschedule it back to april 20, and just call out sick, and take the psych test? Do you think this will make my process go faster, and/or give me a better chance at getting into the july academy?

    B/c I really want to get in for july, instead of waiting till january 2014.

    So my humor won't translate into the firehouse and your gonna be laughing at me while I scrub a pot with a smile on my face. I've read these outrageous statements for a while that you have been spewing. I already am rookie scum and I can't wait to be a probie bitch. So keep chuckling to yourself. You think scrubbing a pot and getting the **** end of the stick is gona break me ill eat a **** sandwich and ask for seconds.

    You have a great list number; DO NOT reschedule anything else. If you're serious about taking this job, you need to forget about whatever store you're working at right now. You should absolutely call out sick to make sure you get to all these appointments on schedule. If you're on the fence about taking the job or not sure you want it, that's fine. Don't take the spot from someone who does for sure. I'm not busting your chops, but what are you thinking?

    I was in the same boat as you a few weeks ago. I had to reschedule and received a letter about a week ago for May 18 aswell. I have a feeling this is the last of the psych dates for now. Just a feeling, I have no info for sure. I think we should be fine to take it may 18 and not loose any momentum.

    I wouldn't reschedule anything else. I myself called out 2x already, plus I'm using up my vacation, and personal time. I hope, I get this job, or my families vacation is gonna be a short one. LOL

    Hello guys. I just have a quick question about something regarding the medical. I have this issue where anytime I am in a medical setting, my heart rate jacks up and my bp shoots up. I can't explain it and I don't know how to fix it. I am very fit and my baseline numbers are just fine when anywhere else. Could they take this into account if your numbers read high on the vitals like that? Interestingly enough, I don't think my heart rate would be over the limit on the step mill, at least from how I've monitored it while practicing. I would gladly wear a 24 hr bp monitoring device if that's what it took to prove it to the docs. Is this unheard of? Sorry for the crazy question/scenario. Just something that greatly worries me...

    You need to relax in that setting, if your HR is high in the vitals, they may not let you get on the stair mill. How much higher are we talking here?

    I dunno man, it depends. The bp is what worries me more though. I honestly don't know why this happens and I need to fix it...

    Ah, I'm sorry man. You were cursed with an unlucky SSN haha. That's good news for me though considering this is VERY close to my number. I pray your investigator is correct.

    That is excellent news if it turns out to be true! Recently I was told if you get scheduled for your medical that's a good indicator of where you may end up. It doesn't always work out the way they plan it, but they don't want to give you a medical in June, and then you end up getting pushed back to the January 2014 class. I'm sure that can end up happening to some of us, it's not an exact science, but they're trying to avoid that. The guy I was talking to isn't "in the know" in any way, just going off of 20+ years experience.
