Get out of jail free cards

In the hotel, we met with our client. He gave us two “pass” cards. We joked that the cards said, “Let these guys go, but scare them first.” We knew the procedure. The guards would call the police before calling their boss. The police had guns.

The security chief would wait in his office hoping to hear the good news. He wrote on our passes that they were good for one night only. Trust is carefully measured.

Catching us would be good news. It would inform our client that his system beat us. However, our job was to deliver an honest assessment of his security risks. Idiots are caught every day.
