Oh lawd, he comin'

Today, I was sitting in my car outside my apartment complex when a man came around the corner holding something shiny, and I thought was a gun. Thinking I was about to get robbed at gunpoint, I bugged out and threw up. It was a silver watering can. He asked if I was okay. FML

2 - Could have been getting ready to pull out and drive somewhere, could of just came back from somewhere and hadn't gotten out of the car, or was looking for something in the car.

Naturally anyone wanting to rob you would instinctively shoot at you if you attempt to flee in a vehicle. The point of most robberies is your money and/or material possessions, usually not your life.

But I do agree with people saying OP over reacted. I carry a gun every day (going to get some down votes for that), that doesn't mean I am interested in robbing someone. And that definitely does not mean I think every shiny piece of metal is a weapon meant to harm me.

Being from California would explain a lot of this. Not because people from California are any less/more intelligent but because the have stricter gun laws.

6- There is nothing that says the OP was a woman. Regardless, this comment is pretty sexist for assuming that there is something inherent about a woman that would make her overreact.

I find rugby tackling people who look suspicious works best...If there innocent let them go, if not get the weapon! Never tackle grannies though...I still remember that day, I'm sorry grandma it's the way you held that knife..!

32- There's a very simple way for you to avoid any comments you don't like... Don't read them. There was no real necessity in telling him that he's trying too hard, it was just rude.

I've always wondered something about that comeback. If you haven't read/watched/heard something how can you know if you like it or not? You can't avoid a comment you don't like if you don't know what it says.

Was the man black or Mexican? Because if so, it's slightly more reasonable why you panicked. Yes I'm against stereotyping, but I realize that many people still do it, and I'm Mexican myself, if that changes anything.

It’s ironic that this seemingly failed thread would elicit such a hilarious exchange. I wish I could thumb up Sirin, but you'll just have to accept Baustigt's thumbs as going for the both of you.

By  br0ccoli  |  14 you're wrong. It's a gun shaped like a watering can. Quick! Throw your vomit in his face for self defense! The acid will burn his eyes and give you a chance to flee.
