    Default Get thyself to an English class

    Bro, my first suggestion for you is to brush up with an English class. We aren't the best spellers out here, but a lot of tests have a reading/spelling/punctuation comprehension portion to them. You will be expected to communicate in a written form at some point.

    Well, even though Bam's suggestion on taking an English class wasn't very tactfully said, his advise was along the right line. If you're looking for guidance on what to do as a first step towards becoming a career firefighter, then I would recommend taking what Bam said a step further by at least finishing a two-year degree. Your punctuation, grammar, and spelling don't have to be perfect to get a job as a firefighter, but yours does need to improve quite a bit or you'll never be taken seriously by anyone who reads your writing. Having an education is so important in the fire service these days.

    Good call JayDudley. His name gives it away. bigcig is right along the same lines as largehose69. Both names refer to the size of the user's phallus. largehose69 was a total bull$hitter, and I'm sure that bigcig is too. He also went by the name of hotdog34 one time. He'll come on here to argue this or create another user to support him. If I were any of you, I wouldn't give this attention starved loser the satisfaction of replying.

    Default It was the spelling

    I graduated from L.A. City Schools and even " I" can spell better than that.
