Drones Series 4: Drones Find a New Career Opportunity By GAIL FARRELLY

Author Gail Farrelly grew up in The Bronx and now resides in Bronxville, NY. Having a doctorate in accounting from George Washington University, she’s taught in several universities and published numerous articles in business and academic journals. Learning about the murderous politics of academic life turned her mind to crime. The fictional kind, of course!
Her first mystery, “Beaned In Boston,” in which a lecherous professor perishes even though he was well published, was named to the Washington Irving Book Selection List. Her short story, “Even Steven,” was nominated for a Derringer Award. Gail writes spoofs for the Yonkers Tribune Webaper, YonkersTribune.com, and for a British website, TheSpoof.com. Gail shares a website, http://www.farrellysistersonline.com/, with her sister Rita, also a mystery writer.

It happened when drones read about one of their own that was able to rescue two teenagers from a rough surf in Australia. The drone provided a rescue for the swimmers in trouble by quickly throwing from the air an inflatable device. Eureka!

Tired of doing just surveillance, drones are now jumping at the chance to become lifeguards at beach resorts. “It’s much more satisfying than a boring surveillance gig,” claims an excited drone.

Does this set a precedent for the future? You betcha!

Not so fast though. Fearful for their jobs, traditional lifeguards aren’t happy. “Buzz off,” they’re telling the drones. “This is our turf.” One lifeguard complained, “Machines are into everything these days. And now they’re stealing our livelihoods. It’s just not fair.”

But producers planning another BAYWATCH movie were delighted, feeling that drones would add a much needed boost to future movies in the franchise. “Everything’s going tech these days,” said one of the producers with a big grin, adding “It’s time for us to join the party.”

In public, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, star of the latest BAYWATCH movie, is taking it all in stride. “Ya gotta go with the flow, move with the times,” he’s told the media. But in private, he’s furious, telling friends, “I’ll smash those clueless machines into smithereens if they try to steal our jobs.”

Advice to drone lifeguards: Watchit!

  1. re: “…… drones would add a much needed boost to future movies in the franchise.” I don’t know about that, just can’t picture a drone in one of those skimpy, reddish-orange bathing suits, which is sort of a ‘signature’ of Baywatch. Nah, I’ll stay home, save my money and watch re-runs of The Brady Bunch.
