    Day One in Private Investigator Class

    Well, I just started my PI intro course today (class 1 of 6), part of a neighorbing city (Plano's) continuing education series - What a hoot! Best $75 I've ever spent. Love the instructor too (he looks and acts like Matlock - no joke).

    It's my "backup plan" in case I don't make Police Reserves' physical requirements, or can't get a decent-paying civil job in the PD - but the more I think about it, the better it sounds, at least to earn some spare pocket change. The money sounds pretty good for the people that are good at it, so maybe I can just quit by boring old "day job" after a few years - WOuldn't that be nice, but I'm kinda gettin ahead of myself here

    Have any of you guys done any PI work? It sounds like it can be rewarding, but also very tiring doing record searches and survelance, and potentially a lot of dry holes that pay nothing - but I guess that's a problem with every self-employment business.

    Now after a night ike that, I sure hate to go back to work this morning.... I must be gettin old if sitting in a class for two hours is the most exciting thing I've done all month

    So, you work in Texas, and you're a private investigator, huh? I know a certain Texas Investigator who might be able to help you out...then again, you might not want to take his advice!!!

    LOL - No, I'm just exploring the PI field & taking a 12-hour/6-week course right now, not working as a PI.

    It's on my list of things I may like to do though

    I'm tired of looking at a computer screen all day every day, but MAINLY I want to work for a more noble cause again - At least when I was on DoD projects in a former life, it was a noble cause even though I was still looking at a computer screen a good portion of the day (when I wasn't blowing up missile circuit boards)

    For the last 15 years I just work cuz I have to pay the bills - No fun in that.
