Managers have even more duties. They must do the scheduling for one or more facilities, make sure that the guards actually show up to work, and in general make sure that everyone is doing their job and that everything is running smoothly. And managers get paid pretty well.
me: Oooh child, he must be gettin all dem chicks with his money, tan.. and the ability to blow whistles with his mouth to mouth abilities ;)
Did you hear about the ballsy lifeguard that went out to rescue that guy?
It was 25ft.. holy shit that lifeguard is insane!
A person whose job it is to facilitate a good time while at the same time preventing people from ending up in either jail or the hospital.
A secondary function of the lifeguard is to provide a supplement to facebook memory by providing a coherent record of the events of the party to everyone else the following morning. Thus providing guests with a person to whom they can pose the question "What the fuck did I do last night?"
Jay: "Greg's got it"
Nick: "I'm jonzing for some fuckin' wings"
Jay: "dude, get the lifeguard to order some"
Nick: "What the fuck did I do last night?"
Lifeguard: "You tried to jump off the fucking balcony 'cause you thought you could fly"
