Sense of Entitlement

A few weeks ago I was working security at a popular spot here in Halifax. I am not one to overexert my authority and I am a strong believer in diplomacy and discretion. That being said, I came to the conclusion that a certain individual not be allowed re-entry into bar x as he was way too intoxicated. The individual in question did not object; his friend, however, thought he would give me an earful as he was unhappy with my decision (albeit the right one). Despite my attempt to be nice, the “friend” felt the need to point out that he was in the military and that he was protecting “assholes” like me. I proceeded to tell them to have a good night and refused to get drawn into an irrational argument. My political ideologies aside, I have nothing but the utmost respect for the men and woman serving overseas and to suggest otherwise because I was doing the job I was paid to do is completely absurd. I am certainly not comparing all members of the Canadian Forces to one individual but, I would think that someone in such a position would have a little more discipline and respect the need for law and order. —Diplomat
