How hard is to follow instructions?

This is really very difficult to do, but at some stage you are bounded by rules which force you to do so. I remember when I was working as security guard in one of these shopping centres. It was as early as January 1999 when I was employed by one Security Company and I was instructed that I will perfume my duties in Shop rite stores. I have to do proper searching to customers, management, as well as stuff.

I have got many challenges from the customers as well to stuff. Anyway I did not expect to get challenges from stuff thinking that they should have known why I should search them. I also failed to answer questions that was asked to me by customers, like why I are you searching me? Do I look like theft? Eventually I ended up failing to take those instructions. The management from that store writes a report about that I am no longer doing what expect from me so they are longer interested on my service and if they do not make any changes they terminate the contract.

The next day I was called to report to their office for hearing. The findings of the hearing I was found guilty by failing to comply with the job description which was presented to me. A final written warning was given to me. I mean failing to follow instructions may put your career into risk. #smed12
