(It is 2:00 in the morning and we just started shutting down a portion of the convention center that has no more events scheduled for the night. Unfortunately, this means that we can’t let any attendees enter this section, even though there is a hotel entrance attached to it. It should be noted that our security guards wear very distinctive uniforms.)

Attendee: (Tries to push pass me)

Me: I’m sorry sir, you can’t go through this way. You have to exit through the doors behind you.

Attendee: What? Why not? My hotel is that way!

Me: I’m sorry, I know it’s annoying. I’ve already had to turn away several people staying there, but unfortunately we are shutting the area down and cannot let anybody through to assure that the area is clear.

(The attendee gets more irate and continuously tries to argue with me. A few minutes into this, a tall man in a shirt with multiple patches that say SECURITY walks past)

Attendee: Oh yeah? Then why did HE get to go past?

Me: That’s because he’s a security guard, sir.
