    came in and said his daughter just turned 18 and, after her drivers license, the first thing she wants to get is her CPL. I told him I thought she had to be 21 to get it. He said "no, it's 18!" I looked it up on the WA website and it is 21. Oh well, at least the young lady has the right idea!!

    I haven't seen him yet!!
    He's a good egg anyway (even if he is 30 years my junior) and I'll bet he's found out for himself by now.

    Last administrator asked me if I wanted to be head of security some time ago, I said "NO, I didn't want the headaches!" Did that in a previous job and just want to relax after I retired from that rat race!

    LOL My Daughter had her Expert ribbon with M16 and Sharpshooter ribbon with M9 in the US Navy before she had a Drivers license. She was to lazy to get off her *** and get a job and hold one long enough to save the money for insurance. So she never bothered to get a license until she was in Sicily in the Navy. Things went horribly worng after that and I understand she is now banned from being able to rent a car on the island of Sicily and could be wanted by Italian police LOL.

    Luckily wrecking 2-3 rental cars got it out of her system and she's now a wife and mommy (of two daughters) and Nurse in Portland

    Well, I just told him and he said she was going to be disappointed!

    Too bad, a good looking 18 year old lady is a target to some and she could use the extra "help" to protect herself.

    Like some other folks have said, there are some options- pepper spray, tazer. I'll be offering Refuse To Be A Victim courses as soon as I get home and that covers a variety of ways and mostly the attitudes to protect oneself.
