I can't think of a more deserving group of people than Saudi princes to get robbed for a quarter million. However, this story made me realize something.
Most of those Saudi royalty people are grade A, arrogant, aloof, assholes. They believe you are inferior to them and they have absolutely no appreciation for their wealth, their luck and their fortune. They also are more than willing to play mind games, using Islam as a means to make your job of protecting them harder just for entertainment:
No men guards can watch over our women
Do not look at our women
No booze on the floor we stay on, even if it's other people that have nothing to do with our party
We need Muslim compliant food, fetch us some.
Thus, while at the time I thought it was pretty cool to be providing security from one of the Saudi princes, in truth I was just putting myself in danger for a professional hit like this. No job, no money, and certainly no Saudi royalty is worth being in harm's way.
So for any young men out there across the world who are approached with the opportunity to play security guard to a Saudi prince, yes the pay might be good, but you're likely putting yourself in a situation where you might have to fire a gun (and suffer the legal consequences) of protecting what amounts to nothing more than one of the biggest douches in the world.
Let the spoiled brat Saudi princes protect themselves.
