I know what you are referring to by higher wage security guard positions and I really think you'd be hard pressed to find anything like that out here. Unless you went into a government position like the above mentioned Prison Guard, you're best bet is to stay back east.
LOL..Dude when did I say I aspired or wanted to be a "Mall Security Guard" ?
I never said that, because I would never want to be. I think I said that the security guard profession in general gets a bad rap because there known to be lazy fat bumbling idiots, and ya know what? some are!
I should explain to you that I graduated High School but chose not to attend college because I "didnt know what I wanted to be when i grow up" well Im 26 and still dont!
Im not the type of person who wants children or even a wife for that matter, and my entire family consist of 3 people. So I dont have many people to show off for or to support in my life.
Ive worked at gas stations, factories, and some call center jobs and they all sucked compared to security. Security to me right now isnt my favorite thing to do in life but its the best job I can easily do and qualify for because Ive been doing it for a few years and the job or post I was assigned to down here was in one of the largest newspaper companies in this part of florida, and I might say I did a pretty good job in my time there.
What part of my statement depressed you? The fact that I have an interest in moving to North Dakota? Or the fact that the best paying job available to me is Security?
Sorry dude but I lived in New Jersey for 22 years and Florida for 4 years, Im sick of the east and the over crowding and garbage that comes with it.
You ever watch Seinfeld? You sound like Morty Seinfeld trying to keep Frank Costanza out of Del Boca Vista!
If i do end up in Dakota I will obviously need to work but hell I guess I would stock shelves at Walmart if i had to.
North Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, somewhere I will end up. I like snow, cold weather, interesting animals, scenic views , nice people, quiet towns, open space, things of that nature and Im not getting any of that out of Florida.
I find it depressing your in the military during a time of war but also respect that you are in the military so I kindly ask you respect what security guards do because were usually the first to detect crime before the police.
