I'm working on a new project at work developing business for a major security guard company. It got me wondering whether any A.netters had ever been guards and if there were any interesting stories there.

Yeah, I've been a security guard before. In 2000-2001 school year I was in Boulder, CO and that was the easiest job ever - I sat on a.net all day participating in long-gone, but not forgotten TWFirst volumes.
Money does not bring you happiness. But it's better to cry in your own private limo than on a cold bus stop.

Years ago, during the Christmas break when I was a college student, I worked for a couple of weeks as an evening security guard in a parking garage. It was a large garage but didn't get much use in the evenings, being located in a dreary downtown area that had lost most of its shoppers to malls. I was given no training whatsoever and had only a too-small hat as a uniform. What I would have done had I actually encountered any crimes in progress, I can't imagine. Oh, and it was deathly cold most of the time.
How I actually lasted two weeks is a miracle.

L-188 & KROC,
HA! HA! HA! I guess I set myself up for that one, well, don't ever go to sleep in front of me, you will make up with the worst case of morning breath. By the way, I'm the Police Officer, and with the handcuff, will cuff you to a pole in the Village or SanFrancisco & let the boys have some fun with you.
