Road Rage at Mc Donalds
 
After a long due vacation after being hospitalized, my wife and I
left for our cabin in eastern Ore. We left early and both of us
got hungry along the way, so we made a stop at Mc Donalds.

After eating our Mc Somethings, I looked both ways and backed out
of my parking place. When I was backing out a beat up volkswagen
tore into the driveway and screached on his brakes.

The guy rolled his window down and asked if I was something Fuc*ing
special. Of course I answered him, yes I'm special, explectives
deleted.

We left and stopped at the service station to fill up. So here
comes this guy and his girl screaming and pointing their fingers
in the appropriate direction at me.

Ignoring him, we left after filling up. Unfortunately the dog had to go and we stopped at an appropriate place.

After the dog did her business, we were getting back in the car, and
here comes the guy in the volkswagen. He got out of his car with a
baseball bat, expletives deleted.

I had 7 firearms in the car, but they were secured and unavailable
for quick acess. I did have a model 60 S&w in the jockey box for
quick access if I needed it, but I left the situation in a hurry.

I don't know if that makes me a *****, but all that I could think
about was my wifes safety and the consequences of using a firearm
on this basta*rd. I think that I did the right thing by leaving,
but if that guy arrived a few minutes earlier, I might have taken
a different approach to the situation.

I think that I did the right thing by leaving, considering the
consequences!

Eeee.

That was close.
Glad you weren't forced into making an armed stand.
De-escalating was the right thing to do.

Rest, relax, and be on the mend (medically speaking).
:)

Alchemy 08-04-2004 00:13

Thanx horge...I think that I did the right thing. I was taking
15 miligrams of coumadin at the time ( blood thinner ) a baseballbat
could have caused severe bleeding internally.

Valor1 08-04-2004 00:44

It's good that you chose the right thing to do. igven that situation, even if you were at a better advantage with a gun or guns, the aftermath is still ugly. you will still have a lot of explaining with the authorities.

Now cool things down a bit and its high time to treat your wife to an elegant dinner.

Alchemy 08-04-2004 00:51

Valor, I already treated my wife to an elegant dinner. When we got
to the cabin I cooked steaks over the campfire and shared an excellent bottle of wine with her!

mikey177 08-04-2004 01:06

Alchemy 53,

You could've offered to buy the guy in the Volks a Happy Meal to help him relax ;f

Kidding aside, I'm glad you and your wife got through that situation all right. De-escalating and leaving the situation was a good judgment call on your part.

But tell me, is road rage prevalent in the US, and did you subsequently report the guy to the police? He did, after all, come at you with a baseball bat.

Alchemy 08-04-2004 01:30

road rage
 
Mikey I reported the incident to the police....and yes road rage
is prelevent in the USA.

The guy acted like he was a meth head.

batangueno 08-04-2004 02:47

You did good. ^c

julianz 08-04-2004 05:26

Very good decision. Flight today fight another day

FThorn 08-04-2004 06:22

this is where open carry on the hip would have cooled his jets.

Alexii 08-04-2004 07:31

Kudos to you, Alchemy53. ^c

You've displayed emotional maturity and intelligence. Something gun-owners should have 24/7. Glad it turned out well.

Agreed. If you retreated with your family safely, I would say you "won", considering your potential assailant ment to do you bodily harm.

You did well of course
You should pick fights with someone who is worthy of the effort :)
No use getting hurt over a meth a***le :)

Valor1 08-04-2004 08:50

Alchemy53,
you mean just dinner? ;f anyway take care of yourselves. its good you went through this without getting hurt.

jerrytrini 08-04-2004 08:51

COOL
 
I raise a cold one for you Alchemy 53.

rhino465 08-04-2004 20:10

Alchem ... it's almost always best to flee if you can (with a very few exceptions).

The bottom line is, if the good guys are well afterward, you did the right thing!
