    Yep, gotta be there before 8 AM. I've got a good chance at getting it until I can get a full-time position with a fire dept.

    I'm applying for a "Smokechaser" position with the Forest Service here in Bladen County. It's a temporary position, but if I get it, they'll give me uniforms and a 3/4 ton truck to bash through the woods.

    It's a part-time job (11 months out of the year), but it'll give me enough money to play around with until I get a REAL job.

    Here's hoping!

    They're taking their sweet ass time getting back with me. I need a job, but this one isn't going to work out.

    Get this. I wake my happy ass up at 6 AM so that I could be sure to be at the headquarters by 8. I get there around 7:40, and he isn't there yet, so I decide to knock on the door anyway. Mike Hardin, one of my past instructors, opens the door and welcomes me in. I tell him my business, to which he tells me that the "Boss" is on vacation until next week! To piss me off even more, I find out that the position has been filled! :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    **** the NC Forest Service.:mad:
