This Is A Story All About How Something Happened

So my brother has been watching a lot of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air lately, and I decided to watch some with him, and the episode where Will gets shot came on. This isn't really a post about Fresh Prince though, I've already done one of those, though I guess I may do another some time. No this is a story about me, and the time some guy tried to rob me. It's more than likely going to be boring but let's see what happens.

Now, this was a few years ago, and I was nocturnal at that time, and I was always out for walks in the middle of the night to the early morning. One thing I liked to do was go for walks at like five in the morning when it was just me, the road, and if I was lucky the stars and moon. They were very peaceful, and because I didn't really have anyone to talk to, sometimes even the highlight of my day.

One time though, it was about 1 or 2 in the morning, I was talking to someone, and they said they had to go for a bit so I decided to have a walk. This was back in the days when I really didn't care about what might be out there, man I kinda miss those. Fear keeps you alert sure but too much of it is a bad thing.

I got to the top of the street and this guy who was clearly drunk walked past me. After about 10 seconds or so, he decided to come back, and demanded I give him my money. I didn't have any on me, but even if I did he wasn't going to have it. All I had on me was my iPod and he didn't notice this, but he was even less likely to get that. It was a present from my mother, and I'd be more likely to beat him to death with it than give it him. Yes it's possible.

Anyway, after a few minutes or so of him threatening me and me saying I'm not afraid of death and trying to swipe at me, he decides that I'm really not going to give him anything, and he walks off, saying he's going to get "his boys". I walk off in the other direction, I was in no mood for some gay gang bang. When I turned the corner though I did run for it, but I was like a few minutes away from home so I got there fast, and told who I was talking about before what happened.

Did this contribute to my overwhelming fear of the world outside? Possibly, but there were other factors as well, some stories I won't be telling. After I got home though there was the usual fun you have with "I should have done this", but with a very psychotic edge. You see, this happened just outside a petrol station, and part of me regrets not beating him down, shoving a petrol pump in his throat, and then lighting it. But I think that would have attracted just a bit too much attention.

  6. @Indistinctive Writer Wow I hope they catch whoever does that fast :( That is really sad.

  7. I always think about the "should haves" when something like that happens. I was on the tube one night when some ass grabbed my bag as he walked pass my seat. Instinctively I lifted my foot and kicked him hard, holding tightly to the strap of my bag. He legged it off the train.

    Afterwards I wished I'd twisted his hand and broken his fingers. I wish I heard each bone pop and break so he'd never ever think of doing that again.

    Ah, the daydreams we have!

  8. wow! you're pretty brave..hahaha

    I kinda experienced that myself but good thing a police officer was there and he walk me home :D

    ReplyDelete
  9. @Elisecrets Ahhhh a woman after my own bitter, twisted, charcoal black heart. Well done on kicking him and making him run away :)

  10. @Mai Yang lol thanks, but you're a small cute Asian girl I don't think a copper would do the same for me :P I think it's just that when push comes to shove I can be kind of brave, but I'm not willing to put myself out there.

  11. go to the gym, lift some heavy weight, become a bodybuilder and nobody would want to fuck with you. guaranteed!

  12. Yeah 1 to 2 am walks are a thing of the past my friend. Love that Carlton!!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. @Linux and Life Yeah but then the ladies wouldn't want to fuck with me either lol. I'd be happy being able to defend myself and being thin, but I don't want to be some kind of muscleman.

    @Copyboy Nah I think they'll make a comeback, for me at least.

  14. If he's drunk and doesn't have any kind of weapon, I would say, "Are you sure you want to do that? The police are right behind you." Then when he turned around, I'd choke him unconscious with a rear naked choke.

    Then again, I'm a jiu jitsu guy, and I think choking people out is hilarious. Doesn't matter how big they are, they all drop like bricks. Tee hee.

    ReplyDelete
  15. @Beer For The Shower I used to choke people out a lot as a kid actually. Well, try to. It's true, no matter how big they are they'll drop like bricks lol.

  16. Do you watch Luther? Episode 3 of series 2 shows how much you can get away with at a petrol station.

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Shaw No I don't watch it, but it made me smile that an American is watching English TV.

  18. I've actually kinda hoped that someone might try and jump me late at night like that. I need to let off this stress somehow haha.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Aww I'm really glad this didn't turn out any worse! I'm terrified of drunks lol

    ReplyDelete
  20. Woah damn, pretty scary stuff. Never had that happen to me, luckily.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I hate those "damn I shoulda said/done" moments, but yeah the world is a scary place.

    I never walk anywhere late at night without Mace, what pisses me off if I got caught with that I could be prosecuted, so if I had cause to use it I'd be trouble.
    Wouldn't stop me though.

  22. *is if
    *in trouble

    guess who got her nails done and now can't type properly

    ReplyDelete
  23. esssh gotta watch out for those random drunken rogues. The entire outside world isn't always so bad though.

    ReplyDelete
  24. The good news is, drunk people usually can't fight for shit.

    If you did beat him up, shove the pump in his throat, and *NOT* light it, that would have been awesome. Especially if he peed his pants from fear, that would be epic and you would officially be a badass.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Henry Haha you need to be out later in bad parts of town.

    @Hazel Well you are a girl, so you do have more reason to be, just throw your man at them :P

    @Fang Oddly enough I'm more scared of it now than I was then. Guess I was just a victim to adrenaline.

    @Dirtycowgirl Wait it's illegal to carry mace? Isn't it recommended for girls and a recognised rape deterrent? You just mace the guy, kick him in the balls if he's got time, and run. That's quite silly if you can get in trouble for having mace. I would say use your fancy new nails but you probably paid for those lol.

    @MRanthrope I'm currently still having trouble accepting the fact the world isn't full of people like this, and it is pretty safe outside.

    @Ipenka I would be a badass, and he would have to live with what happened to him, but then he would have gotten "his boys" on to me lol. If you're going to do something might as well do it right.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Maybe by "his boys" he meant his starving children. That would put a whole new spin on the story.

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Lot's Wife It would have been easier to beat his kids up than him if it came to a fight at least.

  28. I once was walking home from the bar when an angry mexican jumped out at me. I didn't have a clue what he was saying but he appeared to be threatening so I turned the tables on him, beat him down and robbed him of a handful of pesos. Robbing people isn't my thing but if they want to give me shit, I won't make it easy for them.

    Pesos are useless to me so they went to the garbage!

  29. i hate it when that happens, especially if it makes you not want to do it anymore, in your case, go for walks. That reminds me, I should make a post about some scary people I meet on public transport...
    You were right to not give him your iPod, I would never give my music to some drunk guy.

  30. @Caroline Unless it was "How many people wanna kick some ass". It's also nice to see you on here, but you might have appeared before, I have no memory. The weirdest person I've ever met on a bus is myself.

  31. @Danjor21 I'm actually laughing at that. I don't really know why. Way to go, man.

  33. @JoshuaTangent They really are quite relaxing, until something like this happens to you. Or you realise you live in chav infested neighbourhood.

    ReplyDelete
  34. It might have something to do. You didn't seem that scared though. It's hard to know actually, i'm not a shrink hahaha
    Also you are a pyscho, that last paragraph scared me a bit. I don't know how (or why) those thoughts came to your head. A beating would've been enough.

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Plumber like I said I think I was just high on the adrenaline. I doubt I would do it again, at least not unless I found myself in that situation, then who knows. I have a lot of anger issues. A lot. I'm kinda hoping no one I know reads this.

    ReplyDelete
  36. You usually can spot these kinds of people from blocks away. I usually cross the road when I see them.

    ReplyDelete
  37. As soon as I spot someone who looks drunk or under the influence on the street, I make an effort to stay away from them, as trouble is almost always bound to happen. Unless they are the happy drunk type :P

    ReplyDelete
  38. @DWei He came up from behind me when I was listening to music

    @Elliotgreen I have decent experience with drunks really, but I've never met too many outside pubs and bars.

    @My 2 Peso's would if I could.

  39. Go to the gym and eat kilos of steroids.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yup, it's illegal and considered an offensive weapon here.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Dirtycowgirl a simple solution is to just carry a pocket knife. I've read the law enough to know that any pocket knife with a blade shorter than three inches is legal. It has to be a penknife though. That way you can kick them in the balls and then cut them off! Much more fun than mace.

  42. Damn you get a lot of comments.
    Helps me continually realize that you're an interesting and talented writer.
    So screw what Readable says......I think you're above the skill they've assigned.
    Keep up the posts, popular guy.
    :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. @Majin_Curse A lot of them are me lol. I wish your blog got more comments :( I also think this is one of the first times I've seen you here, commenting at least. You could be like Caroline, sneakily reading and not commenting, but I also have a very bad memory.
