During a job at a pricey electronics factory, where microchips could cost $250,000, a subcontractor group, including our main character, OP, (the person posting this story), had to face strict security. Their job was to set up equipment for a week.
The Security Guard Was Particularly Interested in Steve
They had to go through a security check each time they entered or left the factory.
Chad, the security guard, seemed oddly interested in one of the original poster’s coworkers, who we’ll call Steve.
For some reason, Chad chose Steve from the group for special attention. Every time Steve entered or left, he had to thoroughly check his stuff, including showing the last five photos on his phone.
Weirdly, the rest of the team didn’t get checked as closely.
The Close Scrutiny Was Beginning To Bother Him
Even though it was clearly unfair, Steve tried to stay positive, though it was clearly bothering him.
Steve tried to make the situation better by making fun of Chad, saying things like “thank you Paul Blart, for keeping America safe.”
Then, on a Wednesday, Steve came up with a plan that he hoped would stop the intense checks.
Before lunch, Steve went to the bathroom. When he came back, he looked very happy.
So He Provided the Security Guard With Some Very Private Pictures Citing a Possible Health Problem!
At the checkpoint, Chad asked for Steve’s phone as usual. Steve gave it to him, and this time, Chad found a bunch of weird photos that were very private.
Chad was shocked by the photos and dropped the phone on the table. Steve said he took the photos because he thought he might have a health problem.
After that, Chad stopped checking Steve’s stuff or his phone. Steve’s clever plan had worked. Good job, Steve!
