    Night Shift CC...all by myself, but Co. says no.

    I am about to take a PT job on a 4> midnight shift working alone operating a draw bridge on request by passing boaters. As one might expect company policy says no weapons but there are no other employees present except for the few minutes it takes to change shifts . Just 2 weeks ago another operater was beaten up by an irate motorist who busted into the watch stander's room. That plus the 2 block walk to the car is through a dark, semi-sleazy area.

    One voice says carry concealed (deep as in a SmartCarry) and say nothing while another voice says don't risk this low paying job which is, nonetheless important in these tight times. Opinions welcomed.

    Put it in your lunch box for shift change (IF you're legal to carry).

    If it's not illegal, I'd carry. The only you will be found out is if you have to defend yourself. Then where would you rather be, explaining your actions to an employer, or talking to St. Peter?

    Stay armed...keep it concealed...stay safe!

    I would carry. I'm not one for breaking rules usually....but if its in order to protect yourself then go for it.

    Your safety is more important than their ignorant policy, IMO.

    I agree with all of the above. Go armed and don't get caught

    I'd carry. Heck, I carried in a job where I worked atop ladders much of the day with my boss looking up at me... and he's an anti.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I would carry...but be ready for any repurcusssions if "found". Still, I value my life over a policy in a job where one is exposed, alone, and vulnerable to outside forces especially at night.

    Carry. Concealed means concealed.
