I had a woman approach me last weekend at the pool where I was guarding. She wanted to complain to me about the way I did my job. Her complaints were that I took my job too seriously, I was watching the children in the pool like a hawk, and that I was strictly enforcing the rules. I offered her my lead guards phone number to call and file those compliments.
