Yesterday, I went off to my job working as a lifeguard at a military pool. As I rode up to the pool, I was stopped by a man at a checkpoint on the road. It's a bit of a silly thing, but you're required to show ID if you want to go to the pool. The man knew it was a little silly, and so did I. However, we approached each-other with smiles. We talked briefly, and I explained I was going to the pool to do lifeguarding. He thanked me, and smiling "Alright, off you go to save some lives!". I laughed, and told him I would do my best.
The checkpoint/ID thing is pretty broken and unnecessary, but sometimes, it brings people together. I appreciate that.
