A-Train’s Pictorial Journal of The World’s Largest Yard Sale
Another wildly successful 'World's Largest Yard Sale' has come and gone and I'm here to show you how I graduated from 'Roamer' to 'Security' with a pictorial journal.
After 'Roaming' for about an hour, I decided to hang out with Shark News Director Don Briand as he worked the drive up entrance. I quickly realized that math was involved with his assignment and fled immediately.
I found a great deal on some plastic lizards and wanted to show Sarah. She didn't share my enthusiasm with the new found reptilian friends so I 'allegedly' began throwing them at her.
Me, showing the lizards, NOT throwing them.
Sarah suggested I go find our event staff and get re-assigned a new occupation. It appears my 'roaming' days are over.
I reluctantly agreed.
I was then given a very important task 'Hoover Street Gate Security'.
I was instructed to inform any potential yard sale goers that this gate was NOT in service and to use the MAIN entrance at the end of Lafayette Street.
I was informed this remote gate (the furthest from the yard sale) is a hot bed of activity and I can only assume the lack of traffic is due to my steadfast adherence to rules and regulations. The public can sense that I'm not a man to be messed with.
As with most security jobs, it can be a lonely profession, but knowing that I made a difference as the last line of defense made it all worthwhile.
