It sucks, but I hope everything is in correct order again in two days. Good thing is flights are always available, just have to pay via money transfer.

Well, I found out something I didn't really care to hear yesterday. Come to find out, my experience with BOP doesn't qualify as "sworn" experience for LMPD, even though I am sworn, have arrest authority, and am covered under LEOSA. Means I'd be taking a bit longer to build back up to where I am now pay-wise, which sucks, but it might balance out a bit.

We have some stupid exemptions like that. Frustrating.


anyone know if rigorous exercise in loose-fitting underwear can result in aching balls?

I'm only asking for...a friend.

I'd settle for a job offer right now, even though it'll be a significant pay cut, lol. Better benefits, lots closer, take home car after a year, and the pay gets up to around what I make now after a year or two. It's just that first year or two is going to suck.

They union? When I took mine, I knew the first 2-3 years would suck, but then surprise... no pay raises for 4 years. So I'm still in the suck phase paywise. Though it will hopefully be okay if we get a raise this year.

That sucks. In our state it's all the same if you have a full cert.

I avoid rigorous exercise. Seems to take care of any issues there. BTW - Put a little... no, a good amount of Icy-Hot on them. That should get you back to normal in no time.

They have a pretty good FOP lodge, from what I understand.

Well, I work for the FBOP, federal, so no state certs at all. Plus, our "academy" isn't anywhere near the POPS standards.

Duh, forgot that. Yeah, that makes total sense now.

Oh yeah, so I see our local BOP guys walk around in uniform all the time, going to their POV which is parked at least 3 blocks away in downtown L.A. in an area with no main street access or visibility. I wouldn't feel too safe walking around late night without a gun in that part of town, knowing someone can wait to ambush me in the dark. With your no firearms even when commuting policy, I would think hard about alternatives.

I've got applications pending several places. That's one of the reasons why.

Take care of yourself, man. It's been going around work, and is no joke this year.

Yep, the flu this year was the worst I ever had. Burning hot sweaty while uncontrollably shaking from being freezing cold at the same time. Then blurred vision and weakness... can't even walk... soaked the sheets from sweat, literally, drenched it. Worst 5 days, evah.

Serious. I've had 24 hr bugs before with sweats/chills, but I spent a full 5 days in bed with this one.
