  • Off duty/ time off

    What do you do in your Off duty time? Keep it clean please.

    Because I work nights I have to stay up, except for a nap, for the first day off. I usualy get a baby sitter and take my wife to dinner. I play with my son, cook him breakfast, watch movies with him. During the work week when I get off I go straight to bed that way when I wake up there is plenty of time to play with him make him dinner and I can be there when he goes to bed and when he wakes up. This up coming week I will be starting Muay Thai as a work out/self defense hobby. Not my first choice but it will definently work.

          I'm sure glad I'm not on call. I wouldn't want to deal with the stupid stuff, "hey boss, wheres the plunger?" I liked the hotels though, came home with tips every night.

            We never got tips. If we accepted a tip, the hotel would report it to our employer, who would fire us and report us to the state.

              We would turn them down and the guest wouldn't let us. We were security/Maintenance/paper carriers.

                Us too. We are allowed to accept a tip for delivering an item to a room but not for a "real" security duty.

                    We were forced into the same job, but if we accepted tips, we were removed from the site.

                      If a client expects non-security services at a hotel or other establishment where tips are customary, then it wouldn't bother me to accept a tip if my supervisor didn't object. Sometimes supervisors are more reasonable than office/branch managers.

                        I am a firm believer that it is rude to not accept it ater they insist. I still have to decline it the first time around. It is weird how the people who make the most money, generally give the the least tip, and the ones that drink the most give awesome tips.

                          I spend time with my wife and 17month old daughter mostly. When I'm not doing that I'm usually watching either the History Channel, TLC, Discovery and/or National Geographic, as far as boob tube time goes. Outside of that I collect and read and re-read a lot of political science books, cross reference points of interest with Black's Law Dictionary while reading various Law books for fun, and amuse myself with good ole' fashioned Men's Adventure novels by authors like William W. Johnstone, Mack Maloney, Jerry Ahern, Mike McCray and a few others. Outside of that it's getting in as much time at the tactical rifle & pistol range I'm a member of, and making friends and training with people from the Police community in squads like TRU (Tactical Response Unit) and SWAT + ex military dog faces and Marines. When all is said and done if I have "some" time left over I might power up my Playstation 2 and video game for a bit, but I rarely have time to gain.

                          Bascially my off time is keeping myself as sharp as possible for my occupation in the Private Security sector looking to eventually get trained with ESI (Executive Security International) up in Colorado for specific protective escort/bodyguard work deployed to various parts of the world and CSC (Combat Security Capable) for work through a PMC like Black Water. Until then a more accessible LV IV commission for regional bodyguard work as it comes along will have to suffice, as I promised the wife I'd hold off on anything on a higher level until my daughter is at least 4yrs old... after that I'm moving futher up the line in the Securities field. It's what I was born to do and don't know how to live outside of "mission specifics" and "security implementations". It's got nothing to do with being a glory boy either, as some people often mistake ppl such as I, but everything to do with doing what I do as a way of life. Oh yeah, I also love going to museums and listening to independent local and regional musicians and groups.

                              I work at my security job 7 days a week, and haven't had a day off since October 22, 2006, and that was only so that I could attend my grandmother's funeral in Louisiana. When I'm not doing security I'm either at home or working at my other job as a writing tutor. Basically I spend about 50% of each day working, 30% reading (some while I'm at work), and the rest sleeping. What a life, huh?
