    So apparently there's a sign on my back that says "pwn me". When I went to pick up dinner for myself and my co-workers tonight, I was surprised to find a 250 lb jacked ~25 year old standing right by my car. He takes one look at me as I step out of the car and says "give me your ****ing wallet". I quickly look to see if he has any type of weapon on him but there was nothing to be found. I look up at him and say "I'm having a really ****ty day and I haven't eaten since last night, **** off." The look on his face was priceless as he stares at me in confusion. I quickly start walking to the Chinese restaurants and notice he is following very closely behind so I bolt for the door and close it behind me. As I'm paying he is standing outside staring at me. I try to tell the clerk that the guy outside tried to mug me and looks to be waiting for me. She then very rudely tells me to take my food and get out or she will call the cops. I glance and the dude is gone, look at the the clerk and say "awesome customer service, really...", proceed to bolt to my car and burn rubber out of the parking lot.

    The funny thing is the trial for the carjacking 10 months ago is tomorrow morning. I guess I needed a reminder as to why I hate anyone I dont know :).

    Oh and I forgot to add that as I was bolting to my car 2 kids in a jeep yell out their window "Hey, **** you!", so I shout back "Kill yourselves, please".

    I dont know...lol...

    If I was a religious man Kyle, I'd say that God is using you as his personal football. :p

    I think it might be time for you to move.

    If you are in the States it sounds like it is time to get yourself a concealed handgun permit and some training. At least get a can of pepper spray and take a basic class on how to use it. Next time you may not be so lucky.

    Thats why i always carry with me the Police Sticks that they use. They help so much :p. Just get one of those retractable ones and you will be fine....unless they have a gun which is another story

    I have 3 years of martial arts training. I'm a little rusty though. I'm not looking to have close combat with someone roughly 2x my size and strength though. I know where I'm beat and when to walk (or run) away. I was ready to defend myself regardless, but in that scenario, what would be the point in throwing the first punch?

    This has inspired me to take up martial arts again. I've done Kung Fu and Tae Kwon Do. I was thinking about kick boxing. I'd like to spar a little more than I had in previous lessons.

    Kyle, only you end up having stories like these. I'd say one day karma will catch up and you'll win the lottery or something. You heard it here first.

    ouch kyle.
    Infested Nexus is right - investing in kittens is an awesome way to defend yourself.

    on a side note, i used to do tae kwon do as a little kid. got up to blue-red belt then i had to move so i never got the chance to pick it up again. :( forgot how to

    Really man, Krav Maga is the answer. One solid kick in the thigh and that 250lbs man would be lying on the ground throwing up.

    heads_up:...... unless a cop pulls you over and searches your car for some reason. don't think a machete would count as a repair device.

    Officer: "what exactly is this supposed to be for?"
    you: "uuuuuhhh........... *brain fart*"

    or if someone else is in your car before you get in it.... say if you leave your doors unlocked due to the fact you think you'll be right back to your car.

    I still say you shoulda let the clerk call the cops. not like the cop could do anything to you if you were in the restaurant due to fear for your life/safety/personal posessions. (unless the restaurant is known to serve some pretty awful food..... he might have recommended you running to a different location. lol)

    Thats a bit phyco. In that situation I would have landed a kick (after he punched me) right in the groin and prevented him from further fertilisation.
