True.

Take what you can get, ask everybody and once you have it look for something else just in case that one falls through.

That's a good strategy. Always have a "Plan B".

Any suggestions?

Well as we talked about, try a busboy at a restaurant somewhere. You get muscles and the minimum wage is currently $6.75/hr, at least in NC it is. Unfortunately, places like Home Depot, Lowe's, Blockbuster, and the like require you to be at least 18 y/o. That's all I got for now. Wish I could be of more help.

Other suggestions I can think of would be:
- Trash pickup
- Restaurant waiter
- Bank teller

My sister is a bank teller, she says it's really good. Plus, it's something like 10$ an hour for sitting on your ass.

I, personally, am a DJ. Banging ass job, but hard to get. I was in an interview group of 30 people and only two got hired. I guess I'm just that good :P

I second the idea of waiting/bussing. Anything that gets you tips is a good way to start off.
Have you done a ton of volunteering so far through school or whatnot? That can help you get in places.

Not to derail the topic, but someone forgot the roster yesterday.

Also, thanks for seconding the my idea Krev, I work at Allen & Son Pit Cooked BBQ and Keith (my boss) will take orders from anywhere. I've seen orders from Los Angeles, CA. However, the cost is a pretty penny. Course, it was like 10 lbs of BBQ, 14 dozen hush puppies, 15 pints or quarts of slaw, big order. And the cost was something like $232.78, but yea, you just might try it Krev.

You get paid $10 an hour for sitting on your ass? Hot damn! That's the kind of job for me =P

Sounds like a cool job. How long have you had this job?

Well, every saturday since i joined, Insanimation did a weekly roster. Then when he went on to the EGB, X-TERRORIST-X and Lizzardis have chosen to pick up the slack. The roster simply keeps track of all who are still members of the NGPD, their rank, their Gain of B/P per day, the top five B/Pers of the week, apprentices, things like that.

That good enough for you Koopa?

Speaking of Ninjas, where the fuck is NWS? Haven't seen him in a while. :\

Uh-oh!

X, you naughty boy! Why did you forget! Tut tut. I would offer to do a late one, however I have revision to do. Sorry guys!

I have a GCSE on Tuesday and Thursday and I have last minute revision to get in. Sorry....You guys know I would under normal circumstances.

I wonder is X is OK....he doesn't seem like the one to forget!

And that means I have nothing to go off for on for this Saturday since June starts tomorrow!

Sorry about the roster.

I have strep throat and really didn't feel like doing it. I should have posted so maybe Lizzardis could have done it, because now his is going to be a real pain in the ass next week :/

sorry again

For those of you who don't know what strep throat is, its here.

Now, because of the lack of roster, I'm going to do next Saturdays roster a 2-week one. Its now impossible to do a one week roster now, so I'm going to do a 2 week one.

That means the stats will be higher and some things may be wrong. I'm sorry if they are, but that's the way I'm going to do it.

Is everyone OK with that? Oh and X, next time you have an illness, at least come on here and give me a quick PM OK buddy?

Yea, np. Sorry about that.

I hope this strep doesn't last as long as the last time I had it, I missed a week of school then :/

Not exactly sure how to apply here, but I'd like to help the NGPD in taking down the countless spam submissions that are sent in to Newgrounds each day.

Please PM or respond to this post if I need to include any relevant information pertaining to joining the force.

Nope. None what-so-Ever. You fit the bill perfectly. Now you just need to wait till TailsPrower or mwmike gets back so they can accept you.

Good luck.

In your opinions, a flash (not instantly spawning popups) with only the text "visit my website" & with the description a direct URL to said website and orders to visit it, is it just plain rubbish, or is it whistle-worthy and under which category?

well, it's already blammed, so no worries. throwing my two cents in on the job discussion, i recently got a job at perkins, busing tables. it's pretty temporary, but it's not hard to do and i get money for it, so i don't mind. tails, have you tried applying to kings, safeway, etc? assuming you have them where you live, they're in a labour dispute, so they're hiring people like mad.

Oh my god. 3 new recruits in a week! Thats amazing! This place is becoming quite popular!

This is turning out to be the best week ever for me and my trusty pineapple.

Sorry I missed out on some good conversations apparently last night, I was drinking and chilling out with some friends. We went to the beach cause it was gorgeous outside (in the 80s) and no clouds. My buddy said he checked the weather and said it was suppose to be 75 at the beach. So we drive down there at like 3 or 4, it's about an hour away from my house. We get there and there's fucking fog. Thick as hell, and it's about 50 degrees.

I look at my buddy and ask him when did you check the weather?

Two days ago.

I slapped him upside the head. We drove further south to see if it was the same way, and there was fog everywhere, maybe 400 yards inland. Sucked balls. We kind of stayed at the beach for an hour,l played some football and drank some beers, but then I was like screw this, it's nicer at my place. Hopped in the car and went back home.

Got back at 7 sat on the porch in the sun, smoked a cigar and drank some more.

Should've stayed home dammit. Stupid coast.

Good times though.

I'm seeing it this weekend.

So no spoilers, but how about a grading? On a scale of 1 - 10, what would you give it?

How about NO!

Also, the probies are tortured enough, but not enough to walk on hot coals. The potato is just somewhat pushing it, I mean, who would pay for their dental bills?

One the scale I'll give it a 7.

Your posts vary a lot in length and quality, but on a whole your recent ones look pretty good. I'm prepared to allow you through to the apprentice stage, a probation period of seven days in which me and Tails judge your contribution to the portal and the Department in general, and at the end make a decision about whether we want to allow you in or not. Check out the FAQ in Tails' sig if you want to read more about it.
