    No thanks, I'd rather have someone like the poster quoted below watching my back then someone who can't even take the time to write something that makes sense. This agency has hired some absolute crap recently. While not everyone is crap, the crap pulls all of you down. The rest of you that aren't crap should be telling the crap to shape up or ship out.

        Only thing that changed was a couple of bucks in one of my saving accounts .



        I actually side with Madchicken, I am not a native English speaker but I try as hard as I can to get it right when I am writing in forums or anywhere else. Everyone, be it a native English speaker or not, should shoot for perfection in the things that will help you in the future.

          My investigator is rapping up with my interviewers this week and I can't wait what the future holds for me. Could be 2-6 months, could be 6-12 months. Just like all the posts are syaing we have to prepare mentally and physically for the acondomey

            Not at all, just telling it like it is.

              I'm glad this isn't an entry at Honorfirst, there would be some issues with spelling and/or proper grammar. I see JB (sigh)ing, and for good reason, people always get caught with you are=you're not your.
              Good luck Nelly, I hope you realize that if you get to the "academy," people will be much harder on you than madchiken!

                I know the feeling. I thought for sure I had failed mine too, I sat there thinking about the time I was going to have to wait and reapply!

                  Lol i'm sorry im not up to your standards. I work at a fast environment job which causes me to type at a fast rate so I really don't proof-read when im doing this. And I never said madchicken was being hard on me...this is a forum, people ask questions if you don't want to answer them then don't keep the side remarks to yourself.

                      • I wasn't trying to cause anyone any anger or frustration, I wasn't trying to hurt anyone's feelings, I was just pointing out something that has been pointed out numerous times on many threads all throughout this website: coherent sentences are important. I am sorry if my pointing out someones sentence or spelling caused people to feel like I was getting down on them, or somehow because I wasn't answering someones specific question, I had no right to state a comment. This is a forum, everyone has the right to post, within reason, whatever they want (even if it isn't a direct answer to someone else's question/comment.)

                        That being said, as I have said numerous times, good luck to everyone in the process.

                        • No problem, I'll just stop answering people's questions. I don't get anything out of it besides better quality backup from those that stfu and listen. I think you guys are down to 2 or 3 agents still answering your questions.

                          Edit to add:

                          Anyone serious about becoming a Border Patrol Agent should be a member of the forums over at HonorFirst.

                            • I agree that honor first is a bit abrasive, but there is a wealth of knowledge to be gained there. I have seen very big arguments over lots of things on officer.com, I read a post earlier where a poster was accusing a retired officer of being a liar and he doesn't even know him. I think that there are many LEO's who spend plenty of time on here answering many questions, and sometimes they get hit on a bad day. Everyone should be allowed to have a bad day, especially in this line of work.

                              • I don't go pedantic over minor grammar/typo issues found on web forums. Why? Compared to other mediums, the internet is probably more informal than any other form of communication found out there. Anyone that has been using the internet for more than (Hi, madchiken!) six months should have that simple principle figured out by now. Keeping the following into consideration, anyone that makes judgments about another individual without personally knowing who he/she is because he/she failed to add an apostrophe or a comma on a web forum needs to lighten up.

                                Yes sir, thank you very much sir, for answering my post over at Honor First, sir!

                                Give me a break...
