aSK anything: 5.0: Designated Steve-vivor

Posted (edited)

Not a fan of action shows per se. Low-key comedy is more my style: The Red Green Show, MTV's Daria, Mystery Science Theater 3000. High-key comedy was The Simpsons, who owned my household in the 90s when they were actually relevant and funny and well written.

As a kid, there was no show I liked better than Garfield and Friends. Way better than the comic strip with great voice talent.

As far as what's on these days, Gravity Falls is the only recent show I even care about (unless you count football).

Only a few things here and there. I'm not nearly as skilled a handyman as Red is. ^_^

After years of enjoying his show, I finally met him this year after his last stand-up show in Saint Paul. Great guy.

I contend that there is very little repair work that is beyond the use of either Duct Tape or WD-40.  If it's too tight and needs loosening...WD-40.  If it's so loose that it's about to fall apart...Duct Tape!  Now, you got room in your tool box for those snacks that you told your wife that you no longer eat!!!  :D

So, I didn't pass one of my qualifications in the police academy, so they couldn't let me keep on going on.

So back to security I go. *shrugs* 😑

That sucks to hear. Is it something you can try again?

That's unfortunate.  If you can try again, you should.  Either way, keep your head up!  Other opportunities will come.  :)

Thank you for sharing. I am sorry to hear it; I know that you put a lot of work into the police academy. That result stinks for you. 

Remember that setbacks are only challenges in disguise. Look at them as lessons don't waste time beating yourself up. Just get back on track and focus on what you want. It's up to you, and you will do it!

Thanks man. It certainly taught me a lot, so I don't regret it or have anything against them. It was a wonderful opportunity that I wasn't going to pass up.

I appreciate it. I like to think that adversity is what builds a man, so this is a lesson to grow from and I'll do better with the next job!

I could but I rather just go back to security. I'm interviewing with my old job's boss on  Monday.

I can then get my act 235 and pick up any details they have that require armed security until I find a full time 235 gig.

I am really sorry to hear this Steve.  I am sure that you are disappointed and discouraged.

I was for a bit but I try to not let it bother me. Its a job and what happened to me isn't going to impact me being hired anywhere else too much. I'll be alright haha
