Secure, but not really

There is a member of the library security who should've never been hired. Well, they did hire him and it's been so long that they're now afraid to fire/layoff/whateveryouwhattocallit him.

He is the first to volunteer to secure our floor at closing. Oh yay, us!! This means that we now have closing proceedures for our floor. We must walk the floor, reminding people that we are closing. We must remain on the floor until the final closing announcement has been given. Lastly, we have to point out to the above mentioned security personnel where the remaining patrons are.

Today, there was a group in the meeting room. I thought they must have been library staff, because no one had informed them of our closing time. I went in the back to check the schedule, and no, it was a community meeting. When they were informed that the library was closed, they said, "They security guard looked in the window and kept walking."

He doesn't sound like he would be very reliable in a real emergency! Must be slim pickings for security these days!

I believe that he is the oldest security guard on staff. The other security staff seem to be more alert and perform their duties at a higher level of statisfaction.

He gives the impression that he just doesn't care.
