    Actually, that could be a very useful skill to have.

    It takes 10 minutes to learn that?

    My husband is a security guard, works M-F during the day and is unarmed. They are referred to as guards, not watchman. Not all guards have to be armed. They make sure only authorized people are allowed in the building. If there are people who have to make repairs in the building or do renovation work, they have to be signed in, given a visitor badge, which has to be returned at the end of the day. They have to report when alarms go off, when elevators, monitors, building lights, and security cameras stop working, as well as write out incident reports. It’s not an easy job when people who work for a company in the building, don’t follow the procedures the building management lays out for the guards to implement. When he did work at night, it was mostly the same except for the in and out of people since no one was supposed to be in the building except for the janitorial staff and they were only there for 2 or 3 hours. The security guard license he has to renew every year isn’t cheap either. If someone told him he was just a watchman, he’d laugh at you.
