The Guard

Image result for sewage treatment plant


Did you ever consider that a sewage treatment plant might need security guards?  I didn’t think so.  So you can see why I was surprised when my supervisor for the security firm told me I was scheduled to guard one.  The issue was that teenagers had been cutting through the perimeter fences and climbing on the frames, and even attempting to ride the sprayers as they made their rotation around the sumps.  I can tell you now it was not a summer job you wanted in August and the air was still.  We would occasionally set off a bug bomb in the security office to clear out the swarms of flies, and as for the smell – I will leave that one up to your imagination.
