Im tired of this retail ####. Looking for something different. Thought about being a security guard since I always see jobs for security. #### retail this modern day slavery. My hours always ####ed up. 1 week ill have 32-40 hrs another week ill have 16-20. Im jus looking for a full time job.

Anyway how is it working security ? Heard its boring but easy money. Anyone in cali that can

Yeah it's pretty boring. I did it for half of year then quit after the boss refused to pay me for one of the gigs. Mostly I just watched band equipment at the local park over night. Had a golf cart sometimes, mostly I just watched movies and listened to music on my iPod. A couple times though I did concerts, had a few interesting adventures doing both types. It was a decent job, I didn't have to wear a uniform or anything, just a "security" T-Shirt. Which worked for me, because I want nothing to do with looking like a cop or acting like one. I didn't take the job all serious like most dudes, I just made sure whatever I was to protect, was protected and let small #### like bums hanging around, kids being kids drinking/smoking etc. slide because they weren't harming anyone or the stuff I was guarding.

My training sessions were GOAT though. Funniest #### I've ever seen in my life.

Its either boring or stressfUl, personally I'd rather be getting paid for being bored than doing hard work or dealing with stress.


Remember if your stressed that stress comes home with you, every time you gettin ready to go work thinking "man I gotta go deal with this bull#### again for 6-7 hours".
If your bored, you just deal with it, its not draining, you get paid for hardly doing anything, you hardly ever put yourself in danger etc.


So I'd say do security, get that money and work somewhere boring where you can just day dream rather than having to stress.
e.g. Work at a supermarket or even more chill is a parking lot.
Or if you want ####es, work security in clubs and bars, but I'd say work rock clubs or hippie clubs if you have them in your area, your mainstream clubs and hip hop nights are more stress and danger.


Action is fun and makes time go by but its not worth getting st@bbed just to make time go by quicker.
Being bored over being dead.

No one likes Security at bars/clubs, #### that. I avoided that at all costs. Closest I did was concerts, and even then I only looked after people who worked for the venue to make sure no one ####ed with them. Did a Willie Nelson concert and was told to tell a smoker to put it out Went up there and told him we had to "take care of that", waited til the lady wasn't watching then had him duck behind a seat and we power chiefed that #### til it was gone. Dude was so happy to smoke with security, he was shaking my hand all hysterical like, "DUUUUUDE THAT WAS SO COOL!!!" I'm like, "I'm just trying to get high, chill boss."

word ? thats some ####ed up ####.

With me it wasn't that type of situation though. The guy told me to patrol the hotel one date. He said the Miami Dolphins' alumni and some current players were going to be staying there (Clayton, and I was in the elevator with Channing Crowder when he played for them.) I went there, did 12 hours overnight (also, some shady dude was parked outside the whole time so I kept an eye on him, turns out he was a pimp running girls up to the players He and the girls got mad nervous when they were with me in the elevator and saw "Security" on the back of my shirt, but I just chuckled, who am I to care?) Well I get done, and planned to go out of town the next day. I'm out of town and the boss calls me up and starts asking why I'm late. I ask him, late for what? He says I'm supposed to be at the hotel. I let him know he told me to do it the day before. He denied it, I told him I did 12 hours, he said that was on me and I wouldn't get paid for it and I better get to the hotel If I want to keep my job. I told him I was out of town which he thought I was lying, finally after more disrespect, directly caused by his own negligence I told him to go #### himself and I quit. My whole thing was, you tell me the Dolphins are going to be there, I work that night, the Dolphins are there, and yet he's trying to say I went the wrong night? Bull####. It would only make sense if someone else was already there doing security. But I was the only dude, so why would they have security one night, and not the other? Huge hole in his story. He ####ed up, tried to blame me for it, and not pay me, so I told him to eat a di#k.

If his hand was that he hated me and wanted me gone but didn't want to fire me (although I don't know why he wouldn't want to fire me if he really hated me because I would of gotten no benefits) then yeah he played me. But that makes no sense. Regardless, If someones not gonna pay me, I'm not gonna stay. He would be playing me even more if I stayed and accepted not getting paid for 12 hours of work.

Explain how I was playing to his hand though, I'm interested if how you thought that up?
