My local newspaper today had an ad for hiring investigators. Didn't specify male or female, but it sure is different from any fictional account I've read about how the PI got started.

Mind you, they weren't looking for complete rookies. Specified 2 years surveillance experience. Well, hey, I've spent a lot of time looking out the windows of parked cars, not even counting all those summers going to drive-in movies. Where'd I put my manual?
