What do you do?

I'd be entirely too stressed out. Nothing happens most of the time which gets boring, and then when something does it could be insane and possibly life threatening, plus you're got to be responsible if shit gets stolen. Seems horrible.

I'm the bolded part. My boss won't pay more for having a concealed weapon, so I'm not forking over hundreds more for one.

My job is easy as fuck. Most of the time, I just chat with the employees that work at the warehouse. I work the day shift, so throughout my shift, there are always people there, which means not much to worry about.

Also, I keep a bat, pepper spray, and a couple of miscellaneous objects with me that could easily help in case something were to go down. But if the fucker has a gun? I don't get paid enough to risk my life for a few measly items.

It amazes me the things people do at work. I remember lecturing the mail room at a prior job because they had porn playing. Dudes, you will get fired for this, is it really necessary? I had one co-worker who sent out emails to people lecturing them on their manners. Random employees, she'd hear them talking too loud and email them cc'ing others. (Note: She got fired.)

I worked as a parking guard when I was 17 or so. Jobs like these, you just slack because there's nothing to do.
I got fired.. but before my time was actually up, I just stopped showing.
1. The boss once found a stack of DVD's when he came to check the office during nighttime (I had late shift and morning shift, so I just left my DVD's in the office).
2. you're supposed to read the logs from the previous shifts when you come in.. I never did that. So I never read that the mobile phone, with which you could open up the gates when out on rounds, was sorta broke. I was a parking guard at the hospital and the cops brought in a criminal. Had to get a ticket to get in and when they left after (with the guy) they couldnt get the gates open, because they didn't pay and I was "out on rounds". My co-worker came in for the next shift and saw some fight near the gate, between police and hospital security. All because I didnt know that the phone was broke (The calls came in, but I couldnt answer them and was too lazy to walk out front). I did nothing but eat, sleep, watch dvd's, and read books..
