On a flight to Burbank on St Patricks Day I met the coolest woman, a Bail agent. While I dont usually talk to my neighbor I was so inclined to chat the entire 1 hour 37 minutes.
I am convinced that high school career counselors do a terrible job telling you what you can be when you grow up (Doctor, Lawyer, Nurse). Here is a woman who has found second career success in being a Bail Agent (different than a Bounty Hunter).
So, because I cared - I now know the difference. Consider yourself informed :)
