Well make sure u dont save his life if he ever needs the help...
55 - while I understand that keeping watch over the pool is - and most definitely should be - the most important thing, most pools I go to don't have anyone else watching to kick out those people, and more often than not the same assholes cause tons of problems. So being able to ask people to leave the area, especially after they showed that they have no respect for those who are keeping people safe, would make sense to me.
71- unless he's being paid to be a bouncer too, then that's not his job. I understand that most pools are understaffed, and it is a shame that the kid wasn't kicked out immediately, but like I said the lifeguard needs to do his job. Fuck his life for not being able to wash off though.
I think OP could be new at lifeguarding, because I was a lifeguard before and if someone at a pool throws something at you or violates the rules in some way when you're on duty then the lifeguard can ban the person from the pool completely.. Or tell your boss and the boss will ban them. Banhammer!
every pool that i have worked at, it has been their job. as a life guard you job is not just to save the occasional kid that thinks they can swim but cant, but also to enforce the rules of the pool and keep it a safe environment, running is usually always listed as a violation of pools rules, so the "life"guard was infact doing their job, but was unable to execute to the full extent of their ability.
Chicken marinated in soda is pretty damn good. I'm just sayin'.
Arrick, there are two problems with your comment: 1) My comment was a joke 2) Every burn should have something put on it EXCEPT first degree. Second degree burns, especially deep ones, should have an antibiotic cream applied daily. First degree burns (including sunburns) don't need anything. Aloe or lidocaine gel will help it feel better, but it will not help it heal better or faster. Please don't argue with me on this, because I personally guarantee you will lose.
I should've said and/or when referencing the high school diploma and standard job interview. My point, which very obviously went over your head, is that typically one needs to undergo training, certifications, etc that would not be required at a "normal" job to obtain a lifeguard position. Therefore you should be able to safely assume that OP will not want to throw his job out the window because of some kid.
