I took my wife to movies tonight to see Casino Royale (great movie 5 stars from us). The movie parking lot was full so I dropped her off and drove over to the other side of the mall to get a parking place. I parked my car and started to walk across the lot. As I did 2 guys in a Volkswagen Jetta came down the row. I saw them and they kept aiming the car at me. Turning toward me as I walked. They may have been going 10-15 MPH. Finally he comes right up to me with his left front fender and wants to know why I couldn't get out of his way. I told him that pedestrians have the right of way and it seemed like he was aiming for me. At that, he turned his front wheels right at me and moved up. (Now comes the stupid part by me). At that moment I took the palm of my hand and smashed his mirror. He started screaming. I walked behind their car as they got out. The passenger was about 6'6" and dressed in long gym pants and a sleeveless gym shirt. I am thinking that now I have really done it. Gonna get a major butt kicking over something stupid.

Right then the mall security guy drove up. I told him I didn't have time to discuss and went on to the movie. So do you think these 2 guys were up to something or was it just 3 idiots all losing their senses at the same time(I am one of the three)???

Umm...Glad that Mall Security was there.
Discretion is generally the better part of valor, but the jerk(insert negative explitive here) got what he deserved! I'm glad that you weren't stomped on! Please be more careful in the future. There are too many idiots out there who think that it is thier job to screw with people just because they suck major amounts of monkey butt!

I really wish that people would screw with me more often...but they never seem to do so.... :verymad: :verymad: :verymad:

Movie was great- - 5 star- - must see.

My concern with the two guys was I was in the outer edge of the lot and not many people out there and I am wondering if they were checking me out to see if I was a good target to rob.

I think they were at least bullies trying to get some kicks. I would have reacted similarly, but there would have to be an extra step of escalation before I damaged their vehicle. Just standing your ground cuts them down some.

Hey Hal,

Get one of these and start carrying, you have no idea the intentions of those jerks, but that should not matter you should be prepared.

If legal in your area, this would be first in my opinion.

Classes like these are generally available in most areas ask at the better pistol ranges.

Glad your ok. Sounds like a couple of punks with nothing better to do. I was in the mall parking lot and had a guy try to break in my truck and I was still in it. He could not see through the tint. I had to introduce him to my buddies SMITH and WESSON. I am glad they didnt screw with your ride after you left.

That could have got REAL UGLY REAL FAST. If robbery was their intention then you should pack.If assault and battery was their intent then you need to pack. Sounds like scum either way.Glad you slipped past that trouble. :verymad:

Clear example of peeps with no RESPECT for others.

However with age comes wisdom. While I think your temper was faster than your wisdom, your wisdom prevailed when you walked away.

Your a stronger man than me Hal.

I'm a firm believer in being prepared, but there's responsibility that goes w/it. If you're going to "be prepared" w/some sort of weapon, know the laws and be proficient w/it. "Showing steel" ain't enough sometimes. Don't count on it being enough any time. You may very well end up in more trouble. Having said that, I carry everywhere I go. I'm also much more likely to just walk away from silly stuff because of the potential for dire consequences, if that makes sense.

Im about 90% sure they were trying to rob you. Ive seen similar things happen in alot of places. They will make it look like a fight starting and one snags your wallet while the other is more or less watching for :cop:. Good thing the security showed up when he did. Probly saved you sending 2 dumb a$$es to the hospital :bigthumbsup:

Hal, I just had another thought. Be glad you are moving. Hopefully there is less of this where you are going in SC.
