Guns don't buy respect, 88. Police or security guards aren't owed respect any more than anyone else. A douche with a badge is still a douche. And op, it's a candy bar, the stadium deliberately prevents outside food and drink because they price gouge people, it's a disgustingly greedy practice. Just let people with a damned snickers bar inside next time.
Agreed - I do the same job, but we're outright told that a single candy bar is OK, a whole bag of candy bars isn't. Snickers are popular with diabetics because they also have a lot of protein, so they often claim medical need anyway. Not that I haven't had someone swearing at me because she couldn't bring her fried chicken in so her kid wouldn't have to eat "stadium crap" or the one that was bringing in an empty SoBe juice bottle (the glass one) because she was diabetic. I've been at this long enough to know when you're lying.
I'm guessing it was not professional sports based on location (if I'm wrong, please correct me). When I did this job for an extremely brief stint, we were told no food but we could use our judgement except when it came down to foods actually sold at the stadium. Professional sports don't often sell candies, school athletics often do. All that is moot, however. I would've ejected her and told her to leave before the police were called. Acceptable, and plausible, bluff.
#33 - For the assault, yes - and believe me it's happened and I have - but part of the reason we do allow small amounts of food are to prevent unnecessary interactions. It isn't worth it. #50, you'd be surprised. . .I just used that as an example, but the excuses people come up with are hysterical.
