General Off-Topic Board / Re: XOXO Admin Loses Job Offer

I doubt that!  Every good FF I know lives for a structure fire.

Oh, you're right about that.  It used to be fun for me, then I made the dumbass mistake (three times, no less) of getting promoted.  Now I'm responsible for everything that goes wrong on the scene and I get credit for nothing that goes right.  The guys on the nozzle get all the fun and I get all the paperwork and Monday morning quarterbacking from the chief.   >:(

one can believe/think what they like.  its when it escapes from your mouth is when it becomes public, and therefore you become culpable for it.

free speech is limited, anyway.  you can't yell "fire!" in a crowded movie theater, etc. 

But can I yell "Theater!" in a crowded house fire?   ???

jk, usually I'm mumbling "oh, sh*t" in house fires...

This should be required reading for all 1Ls! :D

...especially for those aged 25 and under.

I sent them an "um...about that decision" e-mail on Monday and have not yet heard back from them.  They must be really busy or very adverse to giving out bad news!

I got this email on Monday the 23rd:

application is with the Admissions Committee and you'll be notified in the
next week of a decision.  Should you have any additional questions, please

Anglo-Saxons are over-rated. It's us Scotsmen who are the shiznat these days...

TITCR.  1/2 Scottish and 1/2 Irish here.  I'm a golf-playing, drinking, fighting Scots/Irishwoman.  And I've the red hair to prove it... :D

Also, because I enjoy quiet leisure activities at home, I am so grateful that I can pass up (because I am an old fogey) those "law revues" at noisy, crowded clubs/bars, where the goal seems to be (according to what some of the younger ones say) getting as wasted as humanly possible in as short a period of time...no thank you; been there, done that, got the t-shirt...NEXT!

Same here.  Did my fair share of drinking in college and as a firefighter.  I've discovered that--Wow!--I can't do that anymore now that I'm in my mid-forties.  Guess I'll have to spend all that time studying instead of drinking myself to oblivion.   ;)

I live in FL- those old people speed and they give you the finger if they have to go around you. I figure that grandma knows she doesn't have time to waste

That'll be me someday.  Not the living in Florida part, though...
