Default Thats LT Pumbaa to YOU mister . . . .

I just got off the phone with a Deputy Fire chief from my department and was informed I am being promoted to Fire Lieutenant. I guess the 3rd shot really is the charm. It's gonna suck leaving my crew, changing houses, spending $500 on a new helmet and another $50 on a new front piece but I'm bouncing off the walls right now I'm so excited.

No more acting LT everyday at someone elses house.
No more packing my gear up and driving all over the city.
I get my own crew.
I get my own rig.
I get my own office.
I get a nice little raise.
And to top everything off I get to go to a house that even though it's on the side of town I DONT like it's a great house. Great group of guys. It has a engine, ladder, and a paramedic rig. It's right next to a small airport (I'm a aviation nut). The guys make beer at the fire house (I'm also a brewing nut).

I gotta find out who my new partner is . . .
I gotta go clean out my old locker and let my old crew know too b4 they find out via the grape vine . . .

Meeting with the Chief on the 14th, piss test and Fire/Police commision meeting on the 15th, get made on the 16th, and it all goes into effect on the 18th.

/NAKED HAPPY DANCE
