Well that totally sucks! Is the airport closed or did your plane get stuck somewhere else and they're having to get a substitute plane?

Luckily plane never left Boston. Booked tomorrow. Good News I can get all my leftover work done today and leave laptop behind. They also pushed my return back one day so I have more time in Bangkok at the tail end of the trip

I wouldn't be worried. Unless she's into cars, she will probably get bored in 10 minutes and never come back, anyway.

That's a pretty great silver lining, actually.

Then the cops would show up more frequently. The fines get bigger, and get attached to your property taxes if you don't pay

I'm not sure what else you would expect for using impact guns in the middle of the night.

I'm talking about late night stuff. I wouldn't embarrass myself calling cops for something that isn't illegal. 4Pm is cool, though personally I'd still have reservations about doing it myself. I know what I was doing wasn't illegal, but definitely annoying. Between 8-10 I'd ask a neighbor to be quiet because of our sleeping girls but wouldn't act on it. Late at night, it's one warning and I would call. I've only had to ask once, and they were very apologetic. I've also been asked to be quiet a few times and felt bad. People don't want to disturb others. If I ask and get blown off and my girls are trying to sleep and I have to be up for work, you bet there'd be a next step involved.

As they should. If people wanted to live by a 24hr car repair shop, they'd move next to one, not a house in suburbia.

E38 is getting old

Too cold and windy to wash the car so I ghetto-wired my driver's heated seat. Time to take it for a drive and see if works.

As far as noise goes, I've a neighbour ( I live in a townhouse, so I've one on either side) that works as a radio DJ. She starts work at 4 am. I'm really quite courteous of that, but when she has left me nasty messages for watching a movie, (at reasonable volume) at 8 pm, I'm sorry, but on occasion, if I want to watch a movie after dinner in my own damned house I will.

SOB. My nook android just died when trying to upload movies.

Nothing is open (except Target, which only has apple). I think I may resort to trying to bring my own crappy 10 year old laptop. Or do I try to find something while I'm over there. Darn it, I really don't want to go on a 24 hour flight without a computer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's tough with supported file formats... phones are not at all the greatest quality for large media files ....best bet is a laptop or a tablet Phones simply cant support that much memory and most phones can only take SD cards which have minimal memory space to say the least.

Chambersburg, PA 17201

Dear David J. Arnold, Chief of Police

My name is Matthew Bender and I'm writing you to apply for the position of patrol officer for the Chambersburg Police Department. I believe I possess the necessary skills and experience you are seeking and would make a valuable addition to your company, the City of Chambersburg, and the State. I am a mature, 22 year old male and after graduating Shippensburg Area Senior High School, I have enrolled in the police academy at HACC (part time) for my ACT 120 certification where I am 42 weeks from completing the curriculum. I am currently seeking my first law enforcement position.

I have researched the requirements for the position and while I am a novice to the profession I recognize the position requires above average physical condition and agility. To that end I have consulted with officers in the profession and based on their recommendations and the requirements of ACT 120 certification, I made a physical schedule in which I attend the gym 3 times a week in addition to time spent at home running, training, and doing other various exercisess, as well as doing even more training during school.

I currently live in Shippensburg which is within 15 miles of Chambersburg.. I was born and raised in this area and have attended Chambersburg BIC Church on and off during my lifetime.

While I am not a military veteran, I have the utmost respect for those who have served.

I would sincerely appreciate consideration for this position and I would welcome the opportunity to discuss the position with you and your leadership team.

I have attached my resume for your review and I look forward to speaking with you further regarding your available position.

Sincerely,
Matthew Bender

Matt, non-offense advice intended, but I'd search around for an email address you can sign up for that has some combination of your name. Matthewbender418@yahoo.com (example) just sounds better than fender13bender. Makes people take it more seriously. Can't tell you how many resumes we've seen that are something like shoegal, or hottie15 and they go straight in the dump bin at HR.
I'd edit your email out of that post before spam bots find you!

i agree with the above.

also, i would not describe your attendance to the church as 'on and off'. i would simply state that you are a member if said church and leave it at that.

I agree with Jon, find a gmail/hotmail/younameitemail that is some combo of you name. Or if you ever had a college email use that.

I also don't know about putting your age into the cover letter. Age is something that can be discriminated on... Young or old...

Otherwise sounds good to me.

I have a few changes I'd recommend in the cover letter, I'll mark it up when I get home. Also, dude, take your address, phone, and email off of here, anyone in the world can read it.
