    Cool Got it!

    I've been talked into letting you guys know that I recently found out I'm one of the lucky ones to get hired by a big city Fire Department! I'll keep the city quiet, just for confidentiality type of reasons, but it is a fantastic department, with tons of trucks, high volume of calls, the whole kit!
    After 6 years of toiling away (3 of which were spent in an Industrial Fire setting), I got the call from a city department, which is THE DREAM!
    Including my interviews, practical testing, physical, medical and licenses for the truck, the whole process took a little over 2 months, if you start counting from the day I found out I had an interview. I won't even mention how long ago I applied for the position...
    My wife wants to spoil me with a new knife (looking at a Carter IP, and a Rodrigue EDC) as a congratulations present, which is also amazing!
    Anyways, I thought you guys might be interested, since we have a pretty awesome group here and we all want to hear good news!

    Congratulations! Good news is always welcome.

    Now you need one of these:

    wOOt!

    As my daughter likes to say "winning!"

    True, you will need a good sturdy carry knife.

    Thanks guys!
    I'm not sure how the angry face got into my thread title, but oh well! Haha
    As for the knife thing, I'll keep carrying my SAK Trekker until I find out whether or not I'll need more knife. I think it should do the trick, but I'll have to wait and see.

    I got rid of the angry smiley and added a cool smiley instead.
