"I don't want to cause any offense, but I'm curious Redbaron, if you're mall security patrol, how are you able to hand out $250.00 tickets?
I'm a law-abiding citizen, but I've had a couple of run-ins with private security types.
Both in the same place, for the same offence. I drop my wife at the supermarket door, this is a run in and out..I'm sitting with the motor running and the wannabee cop tells me I can't park in a fire lane, to which I reply,"I'm not parked, this is called STANDING". If the fire trucks show up...I'll be glad to move!I'm then told I have to move. I told him to call a cop, and he went away,with a bruised ego"
I also work in the private security industry at a shopping center. Some shopping center can write bonifide parking tickets. I was able to at the last place I worked. I even had one guy tear one up thinking it was a joke, but when the state suspended his license for unpaid parking tickets he wasn't laughing.
And why is it that people have to give security officers so much grief in the performance of their job? When people aren't following the rules, they call us rent-a-cop and such, but let them actually need help then it's "sir". If you can't treat security officers with some respect then stay home. end of rant>
