I like to work. I like my job or I change careers. I am surrounded by people that don't do their jobs and dont give a crap. The gardener; fellow guards; contractors at the residence and those bastards charge a ton of money. The damn gardener cant even water the plants or put dirt in the pots to cover the roots. I am sick of it. I could go on and on but the point is I am sick of the laziness and apathy.


Its pretty much just like stealing.


As guards; it's not like our job is so hard. Show up; stay awake; pay attention; dress neatly; clean your gun and write a coherent report. That's why I get so angry with the guards I work with that are lazy. I spent 20 years in construction. That was work and I worked with and still see guys that are 60 years old and digging ditches. All day. In the sun.


When a guard calls in sick cause his tummy hurts; there are girls in Iraq taking fire and dragging their bleeding buddies


and buddy-ettes to cover. They dont get to call in sick and move their shifts around...come in late...and all that BS.


They all want to get paid but don't want to give that little extra or just even do what they are getting paid to do.


I am gut puking sick of it. I just want to work with people that give a crap. That will go the extra mile. That are devoted and comitted and not looking for the easy ride and the easy way out. BAAARRFFFFFFF!!!!! AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

LASecurity,


 


This is a common issue facing all professional security personnel in the field today.  Those of us that are performing our duties to the best of


of our abilities are discouraged and frustrated.  We are highly discouraged because of the fact that we seem to be surrounded by security


officers that don't give a damn.  Hell...I resigned from the United States Bureau of Reclamation Security Force because the management


that was in charge seemed not to give a damn.  The best that we as professionals can do is bide our time until better career opportunities


come our way.  This is just my .02 cents.

I couldn't have said it better myself.  These people that are being referred to have most likely been brought up in a surrounding where it was unnecessary for them to work harder than they have to.  The sad part is that many of them took a job such as this because to them it was a "good" job and pays them well enough for them to be able to do whatever else may interest them.  It too makes me think long and hard about my current position but at the same time its people like this that help me to realize how much better I am.  Sometimes that is all it takes for a person to realize that they are capable of something better.  In my eyes a "good" job is one that is going to challenge me daily and make me grow into something better.  Take heed of those people that you work with and use those observations  to challenge your career.  You'll be surprised how much more you are capable of when surrounded by those who force you to think/work harder.

Apparently a very common issue. I had a guard call out on me because his tummy hurt and hi momma didn't want him to work. Tub of lard has a tummy ache from eating to much fast food and chocalate and wonders why his stomach hurts. I couldn't fire him, but I did write him for over four company violations. Fat so never did it again.

wait wait wait.... the guy in charge of the DAM security didn't give a damn ?   That's too funny....and too typical of protection management in the federal system....


Too many youngsters get their hands on firearms without proper supervision. Keep your guns secure from ALL unauthorized persons! Lets stop burying children - PLEASE (jal.fast@yahoo.com)

Have you ever noticed how the slackers also tend to be the ones getting promoted? That is what makes me sick. When you are busting your butt to get the job done right, and the slackers get all the credit. This is only my observation, but it seems if they kiss ass enough they get what ever they want. I for one don't do that, and it seems like I am always getting stepped on because of it. JMO
