She mentioned a union worker who had over 65 jobs and listed everyone of them so she had to call each of them and it took nearly 3-4 days to complete. Which one of you are that guy? Lol. She said they're talking about 150 person class and the rumor of the current head of training stepping down that my source heard a few weeks back was true because she mentioned that as well. I didn't get called for medical shortly after. Lol

    Back to the waiting game. The excitement was short bit sweet.
    Shadez. My BI told me when I called her to switch the day ,that she had a person right in my neck of the woods that she had to visit as well. You in Mt. Greenwood by chance?

    Also,
    I appreciate all the kind words from you guys. My wife and I are truly blessed that they are both healthy.

    Has anyone thats been called so far taken their CPAT outside of Illinois? I'm a Jan PATer and no call again today

    Congrats to you and yours on the little one, Teddy. Got two of my own that are 4 and 2 and whoever said to enjoy her because the time will fly is absolutely correct. My 4 and 2 year olds seem like they're going on 14 and 12. There's times when they act their age but for the most part they act way older. Lol


    No, I'm in Garfield Ridge. She told me I was the last one she had to do for the night because I lived closest to her.

    Sorry fellas, I honestly wasn't expecting to get called before some of you at all. Keefus and I actually have a mutual friend and told keefus last week that my hopes weren't high on getting called this time around if they're going by when the CPAT was turned in and I totally expected him to get a call before I did.

    You guys will be getting the call soon enough. Hopefully that mends our live/hate relationship. Lol

    Good luck fellas!

    I had my home visit last night so I'm good there. Sounds like November class is still a go. I cannot say enough nice things about my background investigator. She really accommodated my family during this process. She was very understanding. From here I guess I will hear from personnel to schedule my medical. I couldn't get too many details from BI as she wanted to do her thing and go so I could get back to the hospital. Was at my house for 5 minutes at the most.

    Cold beer sounds great........ if I could put my daughter down for 5 minutes. I'm a mush.

    I'm assuming if you haven't been contacted yet by a BI, then you're pretty much SOL on the November class. It's definitely happening from what I am hearing

    Well we all know how reliable the rumor mill is around here, so maybe that won't be the case. Harry, aren't you hitting 38 in December? I hope for your sake the rumor is false.
