I don't give a toss what I'm called.

Door supervisor or Bouncer

Close Protection Operative or Body Guard

Security Consultant or Jack of all trades.

Doesn't change the job, and sometimes more harm can be done by trying too had to disconnect from the way things were.

Not fussed.. The term bodyguard was fine for centries.. Cant see why everyone insists on being called some other term.. Bit like a housewife being called a domestic technician

In the Celeb arena, i use the term "Hobby Guarding" as the work is far less hostile. The term "Bodyguard" for me conjurs up an image of that idiot running off with that bird in the film, (The bodyguard).

Close protection for me is the hostile enviroment. But there are so many terms ect that for me so long as I am working I dont care what you want to call yourself.

I'd disagree, Close Protection does not for me indicate HE. Close Protection is a catch all term (stolen from the RMP) used to death these days. PSD is the term that tends to make me think of HE work.. Oh and as far as the celeb thing goes, for the run of the mill stuff (ie NOT those how have received a specific threat) I tend to use 'baby sitting' to describe the job and 'gucchi fags' to discribe those who do it

Must have missed out on the Gucci, guess I will have to keep waiting for that haha.

As for hobby guarding, that's a bit harsh, there are celebs who require protection as well as people in war zones.

I think you missed a small part of my post, I said those who do NOT need protection.
