Q: You're sort of the "normal" one in the office. Does working at JJK ever get to be too much for you?
A: I knew what I was getting into when I first started working here. It's always been crazy. Anywhere you work, you're going to have some level of craziness, so I've always been able to handle it and accept it.
Q: What's the response to the show been like for you?
A: Where I go to do my banking, one of the tellers was like, "I saw you on E! the other night!" That's sort of odd because I just want to deposit a check. And everybody wants to ask you a bunch of questions and knows who you are. It's a weird kind of feeling.
Q: What would you say was the most shocking moment from Season 1?
A: I don't know if anything was shocking for me, but I'm sure it was shocking for other people. [Laughs] I guess the degree and level of detail of how Irwin used the poop stick. I was surprised they were able to go into that much detail.
Q: What do you do in your time off from JJK Security?

Q: How do you deal with a co-worker who always wears inappropriate clothing in the office? Is there a way to respectfully tell them their dress (or lack thereof) makes me uncomfortable? --McGilligcuddy
A: If someone's dressing cheap, like a female with a short hemline on her dress, showing a lot of her breasts -- I don't mean like the nipples -- but she's got a lot hanging out, I think that's inappropriate. Believe me, I'm no prude. But that's just not right. You just have to sit them down nicely and say, "I'm sorry, but that's not what I want to see throughout the day."
Q: My new job involves a lot of desk time and I'm noticing I have to watch what I eat now. How do I balance eating whatever the hell I want with not gaining a ton of weight? -- Justin Pease
A: I've been trying to eat a lot of canned vegetables. I've been putting them under the sink with hot water and draining them, getting most of the salt off. I looked yesterday and just a regular-sized can of corn said it has 300 mg of sodium. That's a lot of sodium!
[Brian Taylor in background]: That's not a lot of sodium!
JK: Yes, it is!
BT: That's not a big deal.
JK: Well, now Brian's saying it's not a big deal.
BT: It isn't a big deal. Not for a woman who eats ribs.
JK: I don't eat that many ribs.
BT: Yes, you--
JK: Oh, God. here we go! Will you please? I'm on the phone. Ugh, such idiots. I've never seen such weirdos.
Q: My son is interested in becoming a security officer. What type of training is required? -- Heather Howell
