I made the san diego news

http://www.10news.com/newsarchive/9851713/detail.html

The tarzan looking dude they interviewed was pretty crazy. He was telling everyone these wild stories about how he grew up in the projects, hiked the entire appalachian trail wearing a kilt for his aunt, was a Army Ranger, a Firefighter in CT, that he moved to cali and would spear for fish to eat on the beach, etc. No one believed him, everybody thought he was a nutjob. I decided to google his name and found his story, dude wasn't lying! He was very polite, even said a group prayer before the test. This guys story makes me feel like I don't do anything.

no I was in SD for the county lifeguard test. The BP guy came to me. I should hopefully have a job offer before christmas. Only catch is I want my geo preference which is cali. They give you 3 offers, so if my 2 aren't cali I dont think Im going to take them

in the beginning I have a bluish green t-shirt on with my arms crossed I believe. Then there's a shot of me laughing nodding my head (I was talking about drowning out there). There's also a shot of my bald head in the water.

It's ashame they didnt get me vomiting on the beach lol

that's it, and an interview immediately afterwards if you passed. Then they sent you to a paid academy for 2 weeks and you were good to go

so did you pass or not?
