How do you cover your ass from your own and others?

    Keep it clean and then if it shows every once and a while there’s no problem.

    There’s a contrast here between paranoia (justified or pathological) and integrity that I’ll leave people to figure out for themselves.

        Maybe we’ve created a society where it is not such a pressing concern?

        @griz the cleanest of asses (i.e. the most upright behavior, the most innocent of interactions) can cause complaints, unforeseen consequences because people tend to blow the stupidest things out of proportion.

        Example: a customer (patron) complained that they were told that another officer and myself were rude to this guy’s wife. I wasn’t intentionally rude; I was simply doing my job, telling her she couldn’t sit on the vents. I said excuse me and when she got up, motioned her away from the area. Now mind you, maybe doing so wasn’t the smartest thing to do, but motioning saved me breath. And so when the guy came up to me and asked my name, I asked what was the matter, he told me and I offered my apologies to him. He said i needed to apologize to her. As i did so for myself and my coworker, she was on the verge of tears. I offered to call the manager, she said it was unnecessary. When the manager came around, I explained the situation to him. Had i not done so, and they filed a complaint, there would have been big problems.

        Example 2: the museum has a “see something, say something, do something” policy. Several times i have come into an area, noticing things others do not: loose sanctions, marks on the floor, etc. I don’t want something to slip by and if they review the camera footage of the area, and they see me in the gallery, because if they’re trying to get rid of people, they could say “this person was there all day, and didn’t call it out.”

        Professionally speaking, anytime there is something that I think might register a complaint I fill out a report and submit it to the company. Sticking to the truth is always the best option, even when a lie might smooth things over for you. It’s just too much effort trying to remember which lies one tells to whom!

        And then if someone does complain against me for something stupid I didn’t report, I have an established reputation with them.
        My not reporting something means it was so slight as to be beneath notice.

        @griz is there something that can be beneath one’s notice when there are 1.7 million people visiting your museum yearly? The answer the people running the museum would be is that literally nothing should be beneath notice. A dust collecting makes the museum seem dirty, and not a place where you want to come back to. I once ran across a giant turd shaped dust bunny. What would happen if it were an actual turd instead? EWW! Fingerprints all over cases, frames, and on glass covering artwork over time will obscure it. Marks on the floor could mean someone is vandalizing the property deliberately or that something heavy was dragged across the floor. Either way, it’s a problem. Because the museum is an institute as well, students have tried to put their art in galleries, having people look at is as if it’s a world famous piece. Even a tilted picture can have serious consequences if the officers don’t pay attention to it. mean that someone bumped into it, making it susceptible to falling down OR the person was trying to see how securely it was attached to the wall and was trying to steal it. Oils in the hands damage art – oils AND stone or metal. Nothing is “safe to be touched,” hence the need for us.

        Beneath notice, as in not worth writing a report for them about.

        The idea is if something happens that you think is serious enough to generate an official complaint, beat them to the punch.
        That way if and when a complain it registered against you, they already know about it and better deal with it.
        And if it doesn’t register a complaint, and you don’t over-do it, they start to see you as a team player, with eyes-open and wanting them to be as much in the loop as possible.

        @griz Some of the things we report are stupid, I agree. We were told “report ANY window condensation” and this one area WITHOUT art able to be damaged by it was reported 5 times the other day (the “art” was just some VERY large rocks that were hewn out of a quarry)! It’s not as if people were even supposed to be BY those windows (another area where you’re not supposed to stand on the vents), so it didn’t even constitute a slipping hazard.

        @Jear77 You had me at sitting on the vents. Now, I want to sit on a vent, too.

    Haha, I have the CIA, the company I work for CYA.

    (Joking. No, I do not work for CIA.)

    IDK, I have done some stupid, despicable stuff. Mostly sex stuff. No one was harmed.

    IDK, I am like a pretzel, something in the world, or on the spirit plane which our hearts are connected to, tells me to do something bad… I might do it, get wrapped up like a pretzel. But, being the Real Deadpool (*TM), ;-), I always snap back again.

    You know, the problem with my situation is my uniform gets all shredded up, so I always have to get a new one. I wish I had the technology to have an indestructible uniform. One which would just give, bend, and revert back to shape.

    Like me.

    :-)
