Thank you so much guys for your words of advice, i needed to make my decision by today and i think i have done it!
I am going to take a stab (Ironic term no gruesome pun intended) At being a police officer. I may loose some friends over it but hey they probably not my true friends in that case.
And i can indeed introduce them all to match betting although i was lucky enough to be able to do some of my matchbetting at work (doubt that will be possible now).
Thanks again for your great advice i have thanked you all on your posts!
Spain for world cup
cool ... can we report bluesquare to you now?
but good luck with it the new job though!!
(somehow i know a few police officers and even with some of the downsides of the job they all seem very happy with there lives so go for it imo!)
Think you made the right decision.. afterall it's a job for life and very secure.. Well done & congrats.. The selection process is really tough I've heard so you've done well...

Re: working for the police (or Old Bill as we call them down here....) - quite a few of my mates are coppers and they enjoy the job but get stressed about the hours they have to do as they all work in shift patterns where one week they'll be starting at 1pm and finishing at 9pm or another day they'll be starting at 4am and finishing around 2pm.... not sure if that'd be the case where you are but if so, would you be happy working that way?
Saying that, apart from the unsociable hours my mates that are cops all enjoy it and of course there's all the other benefits such as discounts at certain places (50% off Dominos pizza and Nandos... get in ) and not sure how old you are but there's the keyworker help in buying a house etc.... plus of course you'd be doing a job with good job satisfaction knowing you're making a difference.
while on the subject of employment/careers
I'm currently contemplating doing a course to become a ... wait for it ... marriage celebrant
Its hardly something you are likely to make a living from ... but these guys earn crazy money for very little work - a nice little earner on the side ... will take a while to build up a reputation, and a lot of gigs will be obtained purely by word of mouth
Couple come visit you at your house for an hour to discuss ceremony plans .... you turn up to the venue which including all travel time takes a couple of hours tops ... fill in and lodge a few forms, $3-500 later ... such easy money, maybe even easier than match betting
its something I could do until i'm almost 70 ... really easy and I don't think I'd hate it ... and, since a lot of weddings are Saturday afternoons, I just mark in my calendar that I'm booked out for the big Spring and Autumn racedays
no ... I'm not pulling your leg
gonna do it
Cheers, Makybe !
Everything ends badly, otherwise it wouldn't end.
Team up with Craig to offer them pre-made Best Mans speeches as a side line, the two of you could clean up.
Have a plan and stick to it
