Now he would have to wait for the results of that test and wait to hear from Human Resources regarding what to do next. So, that's what he did. He flew home to me and we waited... Waited for test results and waited for SOMEONE, ANYONE to look at our home.

We received a call from Human Resources letting us know that Sei had scored the highest possible score on the video exam and had the fastest time on the physical test. That's MY MAN!! Woo hoo! They had sent a packet home with him to fill out regarding his background, so we set to work on that. It asked a TON of questions and 1/2 of them Sei couldn't remember the answer to. They wanted every address for like the last 15 years. Sei moved so freakin' much his 1st marriage- we had to find his old addresses on some website online. We got that all filled out and mailed in. Then waited. Again.

Our realtor didn't show our house once during all this time. So, we decided to sell it by owner so that we could lower the price considerably. We marketed it on and got a few calls, had a few showings, but still nada. Ugh.

In the mean time LPD was doing their background investigation. They called me. They called Sei's ex. They called our neighbor- who wasn't even on the contact list!! Everyone gave Sei rave reviews. I, of course, had the man laughing with my witty sense of humor. ;) He asked if I knew of any drug use and I told him, "Seiuli's never even drank alcohol." "Really?" "Really. He's as straight up as they come." "What about a temper? Have you seen him mad?" "The only way I know Sei is even getting upset is his lip curls a little..." "Hahahaha." :D

The LPD called and let Sei know that if everything continues to go as it had been they would need him to fly down to Texas again and complete the hiring process: a lie detector test, an interview with the police chief, a drug test and a psychological test. Sei booked another flight to Texas for Nov. 14. He was feeling pretty confident he'd get the job. This part of the hiring process didn't worry him. He'd been thru all this before when he was hired as a deputy. He had never done drugs or had any interest to and hadn't broken any laws. He'd never even drank coffee. Sei had been open and honest the entire process, so why would a little lie detector test scare him?

To be continued.... In the mean time check out my Vegas pics!! Or to catch up on what the heck is going on clickety here. :)

I'm sure they won't mind that he hasn't drank coffee, as long as he eats donuts!!!

Those lie detector tests aren't always accurate. That's enough to scare me.

I love your Ralphy pic on the side bar. That poor kid with the deranged aunt:P

Awesome that he scored so high on all the tests! I can't believe they even called your neighbor!
