BPSS is apparently a little more extensive than DBS, it'd be nice to see if I can get a copy of the results from a prospective employer. It does look a bit suspect but if I haven't gotten the job I suppose there's no harm.
It's all a bit silly but could certainly be interpreted rather more seriously. We had a messy breakup, I wanted to keep a cabinet I'd made, she refused, so I said that one way or another it's coming with me - even if I have to take a hatchet and carry it off as firewood. Cue her calling the police and telling me that they'd be arriving if I turned up. So on my part it's a bit of pettiness and hyperbole. But from another, more official perspective, there's probably a note next to my name saying 'behaving erractically and threatened to enter an ex-partner's home with an offensive weapon - police on standby'. I feel I should again point out that I have no history of violent or abusive behaviour, but this incident doesn't exactly paint me in a good light. I suppose I'm hoping that the police roll their eyes at that sort of thing when neither party has priors, but who knows.
I've filled in a bunch of forms for these checks so maybe there's a number I can call to get feedback on my various applications. It would be covered by FoI or GDPR wouldn't it?
