Attempt #2

I did not want to go back to the detention center today.
Especially after this comment to yesterday's post:

And, just for the record, at least when I had to do it -- they HATE doing them for regular, law-abiding citizens like us. And, although the state says to give your mail to them to put in the mail for you, they refuse to do it. I found them to be really hostile about the whole thing. I'll look forward to seeing how it goes for you!!
Thank you, Ms. Beth.
You gave me such confidence.

I dressed even cuter today.
Just saying...
Put on a new jacket.
An adorable white one with a ruffles on the back.
Cuz you know, new clothes make you feel better about yourself.
Sassy, even.

I knew just where to go today.
Didn't run any yellow/red lights.
Wore my seatbelt the entire drive there.
Found a great parking spot.
And confidently walked into the building.
Through the metal detector.
And up to the window.

Mr. Master Controller: Can I help you?
Me: I need my fingerprints for a background check.
Mr. MC: Oh, we can't possibly do it before 1:00 today.
               You might even want to call before you come.

Are. You. Kidding me? (again)
How difficult can this be?

Of course, I called my hubby.
To tell him all about it.
I was in a store. 
He said: Just shop lift something.
              Then I bet they'll have time to get your fingerprints.

I was joking yesterday when I said
It would be easier to get arrested.

I'm thinking it's not really a joke anymore.

This whole drama makes me laugh! But only because it's not happening to me. :)

My husband had to get fingerprinted for a background check a couple of years ago....he had a similar experience. AND, at one point, they couldn't do it because somebody had just gotten arrested and was on his way over in a police car. So yes, felons do indeed come first. Best of luck next week :)

Oh brother! I am having to do the fingerprint thing, for our schools.
Two diffs:
#1- I was told to call for an appt. at the dist. office (so I'm wondering if it's a REAL fingerprint kit) and she was asking ME when I could come.
#2- I have to pay for it myself!!! $40!! I have to PAY to get a job!! That's how poor our school systems are now. pitiful.
Well, one way or another I suppose we'll eventually be employees of our respective school systems. :)
