Crazy strict security
Security at a festival should act much like the noble zookeeper. We are almost always penned in by fences, cars, or each other. When someone's in trouble, 50 other people are going to see and (hopefully) do something about it. But when security guards practice "preventative measures" like dumping the extra brews when you come in over the limit or fighting through a crowd of 50 people to collar the no-goddamn-good pothead lighting up a doob, methinks it would be better to pursue a career in a different brand of law enforcement, one that takes itself a little more seriously. Or... is that what the original plan was? And this is just kinda where you ended up? With a flashlight and a yellow polo?
Damn, security, why can't you all be like this guy?
