security analogy attempts

You’re a firefighter in a burning building, but you’re not supposed to put out all the fires; the fires are just part of the environment. Instead, you’re just there to make sure it doesn’t turn into the Towering Inferno.

You’re the chaperone for an outing at the bowling alley for 8 year-olds. Your job is not to teach them how to bowl, but rather keep things fun, so you have the gutters stuffed with pads so they can successfully toss the ball down the lane for some scores.
