and told me to turn down my music.

One: I am the damn facility manager(as well as my other positions of my company) for the building's network.
Two I am the ONLY damn person who works in the building at night unless a visiting tech from a telecom needs to work on their handoff.

Filler I am a network engineer for a telecom and work in one of our Data Centers/CoLocations we manage.

So... what was his actual reason for asking you to turn it down?
That can't actually be a security risk.

Does that means whatever rules the security guy is trying to enforce doesn't applies to you? Granted if my supervisor/general manager at my office say the same thing, I wouldn't argue back as I don't doubt being a supervisor/manager does have its perk especially given the extra responsibility they have. At the same time, good leaders lead by example, not use the excuse of "Do as I say, not as I do."

Enforcing said rules at this point would be odd in my opinion. I can understand being the new guy he might want to enforce the rules to the letter but at the same time there gotta be some logical way to look at it as well.

To be fair to the security guy, the TC kinda did too if he pulled the "I'm the facility manager" card. People wouldn't use that kinda reasoning unless they're trying to use their position to muscle their way around. Granted in some situations I'd say it is justified to use your position to muscle your way through. Our office have had our share of difficult clients and even though they are paying us to do a job per their specs, by law we need to do it correctly so some disagreements leads to my supervisor basically telling a client to find another engineer who will do it their way or do it the way we tell them to do it.

He said he's the only person who works there at night, he's clearly detailing his night time hijinks to pass the time.

It is a complex Down Town and the security walks our exterior and within the building with, I think, five other buildings. You need biometrix to get in the building, finger through the exterior doors, facial scan to get to the meet-me rooms(intercarrier connections), and keys to get into the cages with certain customer's equipment. Our rooms you need finger and facial scan, my office is off the main interior in case there is a need for someone to speak to me, which there usually isn't.

Do you work for the company, Biometrix, or did your company actually hire a facilities manager that thinks its spelled biometrix and not biometrics?

that doesn't explain the wording of your topic. according to the title of the topic you are a new security guard and you knocked on the door to your own office. (though why a new security guard would have their own office is puzzling)

unless the new security guard is named "I", but that makes even less sense
