My boss hired a new security guard to watch the front door and help check customers into the cannabis shop.
The guy is really mean and angry and he looks scary.
He never smiles and he always has his hand on his gun. Anytime someone tries to make a joke, he has a scowl on his face. I know the boss wanted someone that looked like authority, but this guy looks like a professional wrestler. He is over six feet tall and almost 300 pounds. His arms are as big as my legs. He probably lifts weight for fun in his spare time. Until a couple of days ago, I thought the boss hired a guy that was crazier than our clientele. The security guard was sitting at the desk in the lobby of the cannabis shop when a guy in a mask tried to rob the dispensary. Jack tackled the guy to the ground in seconds, long before he had a chance to threaten anyone in the building. The guy wasn’t carrying a knife or a gun, but Jack didn’t know that when he tackled the guy to the ground. After the police arrived and took our statements, we closed the dispensary for an hour so everyone could calm down and catch their breath. For the first time ever, I saw Jack act like one of us. He totally let down his guard and talked. He told everyone that he was worried that he might freeze up in an intense situation, but he surprised himself by remaining calm and vigilant. All this time, I thought he was mean and angry, but he was just like the rest of us.
