a reply to: onequestion
I have had a gun pulled on me a few times. I have been drunk and in violent places a few times too. I used to go to shows where skin heads would
frequent just about every week in HS. Not with them but our shows would overlap with theirs. Musically hardcore and punk is similar to bonehead music.
Besides the times when I was an idiot looking for a beatdown....
I walked into a robbery once.
I had just gotten home from work at the bar. I lived above my aunts bar in Spain. Was getting ready to eat something and chill when I heard a noise
downstairs. It was like 4 am and her place was closed. I decided to investigate.
I took my dog with me since I didn't even have so much as a bat.
When we got downstairs two rhinos armed with crowbars had just finished loading the slot machine into their truck.
The one closest to me lunged at me with the crow bar ready to crack me in the head. My dog got loose and went after the other.
I managed to grab the crow bar the guy swung and wrestled him to the ground. My dog messed the other guy up and was about to take on my guy when his
partner ran into the truck.
Seeing as he was alone and about to be hurt REALLY bad he got loose and jumped in the drivers seat of the truck.
I followed and hung onto the cab since I was in between the door and him so he couldn't close it. I remember looking him in the eyes and telling him
to drop the machine. It was surreal. LOL.
The truck was standard and bucked when he slammed it into the wrong gear. The slot machine slid out and I was still hanging on. I considered grabbing
the wheel and pulling it towards the wall next to us but the truck was going about 20 MPH at this point and quickly speeding up. Seeing as how they
were empty handed I decided to jump. The guy driving was in shock. I honestly felt like a freaking Cyborg. LOL. I jumped and rolled a bit.
My dog ran after them for a kilometer before stopping at my cousins house.
I had a little road rash and a mild concussion. All else was good though.
I was yelled at by my wife after who had seen the whole thing from the balcony to our place.
My aunt was a little pissed too but over all was happy all turned out well. We had been having a string of robberies in our town and almost all the
bars were hit. They stopped after that. I got a few pints out of it and a story in the local paper. The news covered it a bit and I hear it had
mention in Colombian news too.LOL
I was really proud of myself. I still think to it sometimes. It was dumb but I will tell you what. It felt right.
I have since been more careful. I do have kids and I need to be careful. I know I am not Superman and I am only getting older.
Spiritually? I feel the same. I think my mortality is funny. I don't know.
