Never, ever....

.. say "Sure a guard wouldn't ask me that" in response to question that a guard has just asked you.

They don't like it!

Furthermore, if you commit this rookie error, don't try to smooth things over by explaining the apparent humour in your reply. The irony is lost on them and, if anything, it only seems to irritate them further.

That's true... they generally don't like it! But I'm amused - Sadly the outcome of such innocent wit can result in disembowelment or at the very least disenchantment! Thanks for the post... made me smile!

Humor is lost on them, BA.
Hope you're doing well.
