The two guys interviewing me have forgotten more about the fire service than I know, why should pulling my hose with the vollies have any determination or merit with what I would do for their department?

    /Rant. Sorry fellas, just frustrated. Was very excited about this opportunity especially since I had passed the CPAT in another jurisdiction right before the Howard CPAT was going to kick off. Scheduled the interview right away. Thought things might work out.

    I don't have ill wishes towards those hired, especially any vets. Hopefully those guys have long successful, safe careers.
