Hubby and I agreed with all of Spot's answers except for #7, for which we chose "d". Choice "a" doesn't have a quote mark at the start of it.

With your excellent writing skills, I'm sure you can answer #10 most eloquently :-6

Nomie my answers as well. My only concern for you would be your safety this is not a job where people are happy to see you come to their doors. Not so sure it won't be a depressing job.

I thought summons were served by Marshalls or the Sheriff's department??

It's why the good lord invented semi-automatic shotguns presumably, so the process server can go round in a long black riding coat and look the part.

Nomie, you have to find 6-inch heel knee boots and learn to scowl forbiddingly.

Its an investigation firm.

I had my interview and they said I had quality attributes.

Then I said NO **** ! No one has ever said that to me before.

They said if all the ingredients are there there would be possibilities to advance into investigative work.

They have to do a background check and theyll call this week.
