This happened years ago.. when I was 17...but Its a good story so I figured I would share it.
Ok, so me and 2 co-workers (1male, 1female) we’re leaving work at the Shoneys in downtown Jackson, MS. The one right next to the Colosseum...
There was a Wafflehouse right next door so we decided to grab a bite to eat before we all went home. It was late.. maybe 11 or midnight.
As we crossed the parking lot there was a geo-metro just stack full of people.. There had to be 7 or 8+ people all shoved in there because people were
sitting on laps in both the front and back seats.
Some one in the car asked me for 2$ , but I blew them off and we all went inside and sat down.
We hadn’t been sitting there for 2 min when 2 fairly cute 13-16 year old girls walked in.
(Obviously I didn’t ask their ages, but I was 17 and remember thinking they were noticeably too young for me)
The girls approached the table playfully giggling with each other and said..
“You two are cute.”
Then they asked the one girl at the table if my friend was her boyfriend.
She replied no.
Then they asked her if I was her boyfriend and again she replied no.
All 3 of us thought it was funny and were kinda willing to play along.
After confirming that I wasn’t “taken”, one of the girls slipped into the booth next to me. Then said something like,
“Your cute you should come with us.”
The whole situation just oozed with comic appeal , so I play along and with one girl on each elbow. We laughingly head to the door.
By the time we were actually exiting the restaurant, I felt the joke had kinda played out...
So I said something along the lines of ,
“It’s been fun ladies , y’all have a great night!”
At which time the girl on my right , quickly jammed her hand into my front right pocket. I reflexively grabbed her one hand with both of mine,
trapping it in my empty front pocket.
With my attention on the one girl, her accomplice went for my left front pocket witch actually held the 60$ I had made from that night’s shift.
about the time she is pulling my cash from my front left pocket. I realize my mistake and I release the one girl and grab the other by the wrist that
is holding my 60$. My attentionfully on the girl holding my cash, my free hand darts to the money itself and I am JUST about to rip the 60$ from her
grasp when I hear a mechanical sounding “click” to behind me..
I don’t know how, but it was like I instinctively knew what that “click” was and froze..
Then I slowly turn my head to the girl I had forgotten in my dash to reclaim my 60$, To see the scary end of some form of snub nosed revolver, pointed
directly at my head.
I released the girl holding my money and the money itself, put my hands up and slowly backed into the wafflehouse without saying another word..
Now hindsight I have come to realize a few things...
A) If they had pulled the gun on me and demanded my money, I likely do not give it to them and just slowly back into the Waffle House with my hands
raised... I don’t think those girls would have shot me in front of all those witnesses as I backed away. That said, 14 year olds are not known for
their mental competency so I might be wrong and be dead lol..
BUT IF I HAD ATTACKED HER FRIEND AND CONTINUED TO TRY AND TAKE THE MONEY FROM HER.......
I think she blows my flipping head off...
B) If I had won the encounter with the girls the 8-12 people in the geo metro get out and beat me to a bloody pulp.. as hind sight I am pretty sure
they were all together.
C) I would not trade that story for my 60$ back!!
