    Working in a prison reminds me of the Nietzsche quote: "And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee"

    There's not enough pay in the world for me to have ever worked in a prison.

    It's got to be soul destroying - yeah, the prisoners are doing time and so are you right along with them if you work there...shudder!

    I worked for several companies in the past that even guns were prohibited in your personal vehicle if it was on company property. I have always carried a firearm in my vehicles, and my vehicles were always locked. I also didn't talk about the fact that I carried. The less people knew, the better. Too many people talk about things they should keep their mouths shut about.

    Reminds me of a coworker a long time ago. There were 4 or 5 of us going to lunch. He was driving and I was shotgun. I don't even remember what we were talking about. At some point he was wanting to get something off his chest. He says something like, y'all really can't tell anyone about this. I look at him and say, if you really don't want anyone to find out you shouldn't tell us. He thought about it for a minute and he kept his mouth shut. The other guys in the truck were kind of ticked at me cuz they wanted to know the secret lol.

    I worked for the feds for 12 years and we could not have a firearm in our vehicle on federal property. You risk immediate termination and a felony charge for a violation. Of course, we had armed security on site at work but that did nothing for you on your drive home or stopping at a store after work. I wrote one of my Senators to ask for an allowance for LTC holders but he was too chicken to sponsor a change in the law.
