    A story I thought I would share...why? It was strange and a first for me.

    I worked a detail and then ran to pick up Lady Rabbi at the airport. She tells me "I want to go eat..." So we went to eat. California Pizza Kitchen. She wanted it, so she got it.

    I walk in (in uniform) and they seat us. It is rather busy, Friday night in the city.

    Sitting next to us are two waitresses eating and as I am sitting down she looks at me and says "Do you have a gun with you right now?"

    I respond "Yes I do."

    She does that girly "hebe jebe" shake. and proclaims "I dont like guns, they scare me!"

    It really caught me off guard. It was so random and unsolicited although I managed to choke out a fair statement about "I can understand that, just keep in mind, they also scare the bad guys and that keeps us all safe"

    It disarmed her. She actually was receptive to that and timidly said "I guess that is true"

    We (Lady Rabbi and I) ended up having a conversation with her and half the staff.

    This young lady was a nursing student. When she found out Lady Rabbi was a Doctor, that consumed her focus and she wanted to know if she was a shooter. In her Russian accent Lady Rabbi actually launched into a very funny take on "Of course I am a shooter, I will not become a victim of anyone or fall to the zombie apocalypse...."

    Anyways, Conversation ensued and this is Texas. It turns out that a waiter there (who had a crush on this girl) was a shooter and he invited her to the range. He won the evening.

    Excellent reply, Rabbi. It relieved a little of her fear, and got a good pro-gun conversation going.

    I would have replied with a little "Madagascar" quote....
    "does anyone else have the hebe badajebes????? NO, So shut up!!!!"

    I guess if you haven't seen the movie then it prolly makes zero sense. Haha

    In all seriousness, nice work informing her about guns and acting accordingly. Hello from Elgin Rabbi

    Should have just told her that Freud said that irrational fear of weapons is a sign of sexual immaturity.

    An offer to help her achieve sexual maturity may not have gone over too well with Mrs Rabbi though, who, it must be pointed out, IS a shooter.... :rofl:

    And yeah, that was an excellent response, Rabbi...

    Way to go Rabbi. That chick is probably at the range now, emptying an AR or a brace of Glocks. Keep bringing them into the light.
     
  10. I think this guy owes you a soda or extra topping next time you go there.

    Good response, Rabbi. You are wise and funny. Both are needed to make it to retirement.
    I retired in 2008 and miss the humor. Stay safe out there.
     
  13. Good going, Rabbi! Its always nice to get a chance to change someone's perspective for the better in regards to guns and the 5-0.

    It's good that she was willing to listen. Maybe you opened up her mind to some reality.:supergrin:

    "Hello freaks!"
    and
    "All hail the New York Giants" could have worked, too!

    I think I'd ask the waiter to keep his extra toppings to himself. Tell him to save that special ingredient for the waitress.


    Good way to handle the original question. Glad she was open and receptive to a different point of view than the one she previously held.
