    There is a Church's Chicken, a seafood place and a pizza place all within walking distance of my site and about the only problems I've ever encountered are long waits. I believe that the fact that I'm a security officer actually makes them treat me decently. Plus, on many occasions I've received a discount or extra food simply by running off the vagrants who congregate around these establishments.

    best ever

    +1 on the general concept of getting home alive.
    Best advice I had was from a traffic cop while we were discussing our jobs over coffee. He told me "Son, keep your car between the ditches, your gun in your holster, and your foot outta your mouth and your day will be much sweeter." Basically, don't be a smart-mouthed gun-wielding idiot in the field. Best advice I ever recieved for field work. I have been able to talk many people out of stupidity because of that advice. Also, as spoken by my FTO: "You gotta look like Rico Suave, Think like Einstein and, only if that fails...fight like Tyson."

Our security uniforms look similar to the ones worn by the local Deputies except for a patch on one sleeve. I don't ask of the discount. They just assume and ring it up.
    When I worked as a medic with a volunteer First Responder group our uniform was the same as the RCMP. We used to get offered free food too

    It's not bad, you just have to watch for the people that are dying to get in

It seem to me every time I take a bite someone calls or comes up and needs something or needs to ask you a question and there you are looking at them trying to chew as fast as you can and swallow at the same time! and waving your hand that you will talk to them in a second!

    Or you try to cover up the tie and you miss and got this big blob of who knows what all over your tie or shirt! I use to relieve this guy at a grave yard when I work nights and every time i saw him he look like he was swimming in the donuts there were more on him then he ate.

    Here is one that I got from my Father. "You will never get hurt or killed by a subjects eyes"

    There is, of course, my favorite saying that described Law Enforcement work the best way possible, "Our job is hours of mind numbing boredom with moments of sheer terror sprinkled in."

    When attending the Air Force Security Police Academy one of our instructors had three sayings he would alternate putting on the blackboard at the beginning of class in the morning:
    "A moment's loss of concentration could mean a life of misery - -
    What are you going to say at the hospital?
    What are you going to say at the funeral home?
    What are you going to say at the cemetary?"

    "Remember always the 21-foot rule!!"

    "Never ( ) with a broad with a gun."

    When attending the Hamilton County (Ohio) Sheriff Academy, they had the first two posted on the bulletin board in class.
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    My wife had hers taken out about 27 years ago. At first she often had to get up in the middle of a meal. It seems to have gotten better.

    I work afternoons/evenings predominantly... so I get breakfast & lunch (the 2 most important meals of the day), I just have dinner when I get home
