    what's it like being a doorman?
    It can be a mixture, Can either be boring or can be really stressful, mentally and Physically draining.

    Lots and lots of Idiots, asking stupid questions or people thinking we won't notice what they're doing, regardless whether we don't kick anyone out or everyone, no fights or a massive fight....We still get paid the same.

    But being a Doorman can have it's perks, Free Drinks, sometimes get free Alcohol at the end of shift...Depending on the venue.

    Well, I wouldn't have worked for so long in Security if I didn't, the job has many perks, but some downsides which I can go on forever about but Security is where I belong
