Jumping through hoops


Recommended Posts

I have noticed a trend when dui testing this time around, police now seem to be having you jump through a lot more hoops recently.  

So the trend is multiple dexterity tests and breathalyzers with much more significant hoops to blast through.  Used to be one follow my finger and they figured they liked you enough to let you go on your way , and maybe a follow-up where you sort the details out if they arrest you.

One department where I had to do a powerpoint presentation and competitive analysis was actually the fifth time I had talked to them or seen them in person.  I had never done a powerpoint presentation before, but I think I did pretty well.  I did a lot of research on them and even pulled out facts and figures from a very recent company blog post (you know, making my own luck  :huh:) where I impressed my audience.  I am sure they were saying to themselves "Well there goes a swinging dick that sure makes his own luck, I sure hope it is good luck!"  Ha, joke would be on them with all the recent fun!

I was interviewed by a cop yesterday with two people in his crusiser and now I am tasked with redoing their drunk tests  for the team without first seeing any of their drunks or knowing their prior strategy/hit rates/etc.  Yay!

Have I ever mentioned that I hate the whole interrogation process?  It really seems much more involved than it used to be.

I just wanted to use that video and the rest seemed to fall into place.

It's better to be lucky than good.  If course it's even better when you manufacture your own luck as you did here.  But who cares.
