Call Security! Another Of My Stories Of Being A Hotel Security Officer in Washington D.C.

Click on the pictures to enlarge them.


This happened around 1988. The crew of the British Concorde stayed at our hotel at that time. They had to get up very very early to get out to Dulles Airport for their flight on time.
 The room service man would come in a do a special set up of coffee and something to eat for the crew.
It was around 5:30 a.m. or so and it was still dark outside.
I got a call that a street person was eating off of the set up for the British Concorde crew.
I went to t he lobby and found five or six of the crew eating and having coffee.
And the street person was having some also.
I told him it was not for him and he would have to leave.
He said one of the female flight attendants told him he could have some of their food and coffee.
I disagreed.
The female told me that yes she had told him that and she saw nothing wrong with it.

I engaged her in conversation.
I told her "You would not let him on your airplane". "Yes I would"she said which made no sense.
We continued to argue about this until finally I told her "What's the matter is your social conscience bothering you?"
That did not go over well with her. She really got angry and said "I can't believe you said that".

Meanwhile the guy was still eating and drinking coffee.

Someone called back to our office and told my partner that the street person was still in the Lobby.
While I was arguing with the female flight attendant I saw my partner coming down the hall toward the Lobby.
  He did not say a word.  He went right over and picked up the little guy by the seat of his pants and the back of his shirt collar and bum rushed him out the door.
The little man was hollering "Why am I being molested?"
My partner never said a word. He turned around and went back to our office.

The lady was shocked to say the least but she did not say anything.
The interloper and my former football player partner were both black men.
So nobody said anything about the incident.
Later the Concorde British Airways crew decided to move out closer to Dulles Airport.
We had an old man who worked at night and he would carry their bags so slowly he was making them late for their flight.
And he kept holding them up for tips.
  He was later fired for sleeping on the job.

Look closely and you will see that is the Mississippi monument.

When we lived in Vicksburg, Miss. after WW2 we visited the Vicksburg Civil War Battlefield often.
Rachel and I also visited the Vicksburg Battlefield in March of 1996.
