Security Job - Job Security?

In the bus today: a teenage boy leafing through a brochure on job opportunities as a security guard. I noticed the thing had been ripped in two, then scotch-taped together again. What was the story behind this? Did he rip it up when his dad suggested this would make him a man? Or did his mom rip it up, exasperated that he was considering such a career? Was it just a stupid accident? Anyway, as the bus made a stop, I saw him sneaking a peek at a girl getting off the bus. There's hope for him yet, I guess.
