Getting Close to my Stun Gun at Closing Time
So, it was just before closing time at out brick and mortar store when a guy came in wearing a pretty heavy coat and who looked a little out of place. Now, I try not to prejudge people, but I still have to be cautious, especially since my wife and daughter work with me. So, I eased over to the counter area where we keep our stun gun. I reached down and grabbed it and proceeded to head out to the sales floor.
The guy moved through different sections of the store looking at things. And, I kept thinking to myself, “Okay, its almost 80 degrees outside and this guy is wearing a fairly heavy coat.” It just didn’t make sense. In an attempt to make him think I had the upper hand, I disappeared into a back store room and came out with my hand sort of tucked into the back of my pants. You know, kind of like if I had just stuffed handgun down there. I moved into a position where I now had him blocked. I could tell he felt quite uneasy.
After about 30 seconds, he looked at me, smiled and said thanks and left. That was A-Okay with me. No trouble and now we could close. I’m glad I didn’t have to use my stun gun, but I’m also glad knowing I had it if I needed it. Protection these days is more and more necessary and none of us can afford to take any chances.
