My boss hired a new security guard to watch the front door and help check clients into the cannabis shop.
The guy is particularly mean and irritated and he looks scary.
He never smiles and he constantly has his hand on his gun, then anytime someone tries to make a joke, he has a scowl on his face. I know the boss wanted someone that looked like an authority, but this guy looks like a professional wrestler. He is over 6 feet tall and almost 300 pounds. His arms are as big as my legs. He actually lifts weight for fun in his spare time. Until a couple of afternoons ago, I thought the boss hired a guy that was crazier than our clientele. The security guard was resting at the desk in the lobby of the cannabis shop when a guy in a mask tried to rob the dispensary, and 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 did not 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, although he surprised himself by remaining calm and vigilant. All this time, I thought he was mean and irritated, although he was just like the rest of us.
