I'm going to spend an hour or two at my friend's NYE party. It's one of the biggest parties of the year and I always look forward to it.
But from 11:00PM-4:00AM I'll be doing hotel security. I predict that it's going to be an absolute nightmare. I normally hate doing hotel security-- babysitting a bunch of loudass drunk yuppies and their wild kids as they all spill out into the hallways during all hours of the night. That's on a normal night, this is New Years.

A heavy flashlight if I choose to buy one, but that's more of a technicality.
But by some late Christmas miracle, the night actually went by smoothly! Only one noise complaint the entire shift. It made me slightly reconsider my opinion on adults. Now I mostly just hate children. I feel pretty miserable about missing most of my friend's NYE party, though, which is also his birthday party.
Ah that's better news than one might have hoped for. In a lot of ways just having a uniform and maybe a hand radio is enough to instill a respect for authority in most hooligans.
Yeah I had a buddy who interned for a county police department and he rode along in the back of patrol cars a lot or sometimes in the passenger seat if he was lucky. Whenever he went out on 911 calls with the officer he was shadowing, they only let him carry this dinky flashlight but it had a titanium edge around the tip and the tail. I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of one of those, definitely could crack open someone's face.
