I have been many places and loved many things about each...hmmm, it is hard to put my finger on one place only for one reason...I love water, glaciers, woods, rocks, sunsets, sunrises, people, etc....I can't think of one...aagghh...too many for too many reasons...I do want to go to New Zealand and the Fiji Islands...(see my varied tastes)

The cafe up the road from me is a good place to go. They do a mean Sausage & Tomato Baguette.

Make sure you have a fast car and a amazing driver. Someone a bit like Jason Statham from The Transporter would be good

Ooops, that's actually not me, I didn't quite see that I resembled him. The grey haired guy is in fact John Bunnell, he's a retired police officer and sheriff from Multnomah County, Oregon. He's the presenter of a show called Worlds Wildest Police Chases. And he is OOober cheese [;)]

I haven't got one of me in my uniform, plus I don't have the means to do so I'm afraid.

It's nothing exciting though, just black trousers white shirt black tie. In fact it always looks like I should be going to a funeral [?]

However I have to send my measurements to the office to get a new uniform.....I'm jumping for joy, honest [V]

Do security over by you have weapons?

I don't actually know any form of martial arts, my cousin and I used to do Karate when we were younger. But we got picked on by a girl called Michelle. But I'm being nice by calling her a girl, she was in fact the anti anti christ, she was pure evil in pj's. So we left and never went back. I did try jujitsu and came away with some knowledge on how to use a kubotan. You can put people into holds and disarm them with one of these bad boys. Mine is called Betty, she looks something like this



I'm not overly sure if I am allowed to carry one but I'm not working in the area I do with out one.

Hmmm, maybe try a new form of weapon on those bad boys..hehe  verbalize them down with real cut forming words...talk about their bodyparts and dehumanize them to mud...or you could sing and dance for them...until they leave and quit bothering you...when you are finished with the song and dance...stick your finger up close to your lips and blow on it like a gun smoking!

I don't actually go in for the kill. The best way to deal with a situation is to talk it through. Too many times I have seen a guard get very aggressive and for no reason, it just caused more problems and the other guy getting aggressive. Now the best way is to talk to the person like you would with anyone else. Only raise your voice if you have to, otherwise just keep it friendly like.....well that's what I do anyway

I think that is wise, Then you can feed them some of your home made something and they'll never return!!!! right! LOL Just kidding Dan But you must be real careful and very diplomatic in a gaurd situation as anything could happen.. I have many male friends over the years who chose that carreer!

Definitely

To be honest I see it that you need to have a cool head, you can make matters worse if you are aggressive. I've come across a lot of unsavoury characters. One that really got my heart pumping was this guy who was high on something. He could hardly move but sometimes they do surprise you. I had been trying to move this guy on for a while, kept on going out and asking him to move on, then I told him again and said that I would give him a few minutes to get himself sorted. He started to gather up his belongings while I stood there, and then he pulled out a needle, this made my heart jump and so I moved back a bit slowly. He noticed this and said don't worry mate, I'm not going to use it on you. Although I didn't really expect that he would there was always the chance that he would in my mind.
In the end though he was a pretty cool guy, someone who has probably lost everything they had and turned to drugs, or drugs could have been the reason. I never judge them, I don't know what they have been through, so that's why I will always remain friendly to them unless they turn aggressive first.

I have to look out for the staff, so I can't have an aggressive person causing trouble. It's just the way things go I guess

I aaagree with level heads and calm non agressive personality, Problem solvers conflict managers... Yes! Agressive behavior only provokes, does not disarm....or make at ease!!Well I am going to be about ten minutes going home then I will be back on!

If I had the perfect get away...I might be tempted to steal a hot dog from a hot dog vendor !

Very witty Sir Neil! I think you are very funny! I did not think about how I phrased that when I posted it!! I don't like hot dogs enough to ever want to get away with one!
