        More than once I have been asked if that is a real gun I'm wearing. I soooo want to answer with something like. No I'm a Frigging idiot that puts his butt on the line with an air soft replica. Then there are the ones that ask are you wearing a vest. And again my superior intellect becomes bruised and I think to myself "If I wasn't do you think I would tell you". DOH!! And the one I hear the most is "You must get awfully bored standing here all day. And I do reply that is true and that is why I am so well compensated.

        I understand that in some folks world we are a novelty and at the same time we for some are the first time they had to think about the real danger in their safe little world. And it is that premise that the above nervous questions come from. Although the one that gets to me is the suits that come through my area an mention what a beautiful day it is outside. That is something I don't want to hear short of 1/2 hour till shift ends

        THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A .357 MAGNUM ROUND IS 1400 FEET PER SECOND?

              I work as a National Risk Manager (aka National Loss Prevention Manager) of a ladies fashion boutique with some 400 stores in Australia, NZ, some parts of Asia and slowly growing. On my letterhead, business cards, etc it says I am the NRM and previously was informed it was NLPM for the company operations. On far too many occassions I have had members of the public ask me "do you manage risks" or "do you work as a security guard ?" only for me to explain what I do as easily as I can without becoming angry.

              Another time I had an SL in custody and we waiting for the cops as the LPO was completing his report. The male SL asked me "what would you do if I ran out that door there ?" to which I replied "I think you might bleed to death before the ambulance got here when I tackled you". My LPO's body was shaking with laughter as he tried to focus on his incident report and not make a sound.

                    No.

                    ...And once again the message I entered was too short, so I was forced to type more drivel in white text in an attempt to make others perceive I have L33t ski1z and got away with a two-letter answer, and made a massive run-on sentence to boot.

                      When I did installations, every time we did a job in an office setting, I would get two questions without fail:

                      1) Are there any hidden cameras in the bathrooms?

                      2) Are there hidden microphones?

                      When I was new, I would always answer very conscientiously "No, of course not. That would be illegal". After a while I got bored of that, and would start getting creative. Like, "NO (big nod) THAT WOULD BE AGAINST THE LAW (suggestive wink, point frantically at random object like a light fixture or a crack in the wall)". Or, "We did put one in but your boss is too cheap to pay for it so we never connected it". Or, "no, but I can hook one up for you for fifty bucks". Or "there is no such thing as hidden cameras, that's just something you see in the movies." Or I'd hold up a scrap of wire wrapped around a sheetrock screw and say "yup, that's it right here". Or (on bad days) "Actually, there are about 32 hidden cameras scattered throughout the building. Next month we start bugging the phones".

                      On occasion we would also get some smelly hippy type lecturing us about invasions of privacy (I work in New York City). Those were fun.

                      "Expert" is something like "leader". It's not a title that you can ever claim for yourself no matter what you might know or might have done. It's a title that others bestow on you based on their assessment of what you know and what you have done.

                        It's not really a question, but tons of people always make mention of how nice my Glock is.


                        ...You know, since every single semi-auto handgun in the world is a Glock.

                          Young lady (stretching it description) to me, "If I'm extra nice to you will you forget I ran that light, I give really good he*d?"
                          Me, "No ma'am and now you are under arrest for solicitation of a law enforcement officer."
                          Her, "It will be your word against mine!"
                          Me, "No ma'am, my partner (car captain) is standing right in back of me and heard every word."
                          Turn your head, he's nodding!
                          Cuffed and car towed, nothing like two for one in a single stop, and then I fumigate the cruiser, no joke, that bad. Low man on the totem pole.
                          Enjoy the day,
