    Lets say mid 40's, overweight individual comes up to you wanting to fight.

    You're pumping gas at the neighborhood station, and he approaches. You notice he has two poodles in his mid-90's Acura. He pushes you, verbally threatens you, and does nothing but talk in an almost unintelligble stream of low diction words and phrases.

    You really don't want the day to go south, it is nice and sunny out.

    No guns, no cell phones, just sheep watching.

    Are you scared?




    I was. Not just from him, but from the "unknown" of the future.

    I had an interesting incident this morning where the local PO has already reviewed video and is now looking for a fat Sox fan with two poodles and a crappy car.

    Now I'm not scared anymore :)

    You?

    (I had whole story typed out, but GT logged me out) So this is all you get.

    I have one poodle and I'm a bad mother****er. So there.

    Poodle owners are hardcore. Pomeranian owners are weaksauce.

    Nah. IL. No guns here. TBH though, I do carry legally out of state, and in this situation it really wouldn't have made me *that* much more comfortable. Slightly yes, but when all is said and done I've come to realize, I just want to be left alone. The last thing I want it cops, criminals, and unplanned activities in my day.

    Had you engaged this individual at all before he approached you? If not that's a pretty weird circumstance.

    I wouldn't risk my future on someone who "ain't all there" if you know what I mean. Seems like you played it well.

    ...on second thought, that seems like the perfect opportunity to juice someone with some pepperspray (just for giggles :tbo:).

    I'd still be a little uncomfortable. My dog's 50lbs on a fat day, but she'll tear your achilles tendon out lol.
    I wouldn't judge his dog choice as a predictor of the future though, A man whos gonna kick your ass with a poodle in the car is just as dangerous as a man whos gonna kick your ass with a dragon riding shotgun in a tank. Just be vigilant, and lay the smack down when neccessary. :upeyes:

    You should have diffused the situation by asking him the names of his dogs.

    A faceful of 92 octane may have taken a little wind from his sails

    Hose him down head to toe, then ask for light as you pull a smoke out.

    It is easy for us to sit in judgement.

    The question is. Would you have changed anything?

    A poodle is (can be) a vicious, aggressive dog. My sister in law has a big one, and I sure as hell don't want it coming after me.

    Oh yeah, poodles. Had a standard (the big ones) bite the crap out of my hand. Not sure if it lived or not.
