    Sam's skin is about one micron thick. Don't hurt his feelings with facts.

    Well, Gene, I don't brook insults. Maybe lying down and letting cyberslimers roll over me is the expected behavior but not for me. Sorry. I did miss the comment he'd made. It was slightly oblique and I didn't evaluate it precisely as I should have, poring over each word in these posts with the finetooth comb thingie.

    We're supposed to castigate you and make sidebar comments which imply that you lied and made up the whole thing, or are bragging... you know, "cold as ice" nerves and similar, that you didn't get rattled is supposed to be blowing your own horn and stuff.

    Still on the woe is me.

    Thin skin and an elephant memory for woe is me. I haven't yet seen a post that implied the OP is bragging or making up stuff. If you have, I'd love to see it but otherwise, I put it down to a misplaced or questionable interpretation of posts.

    I did miss that one, sorry. He did state that he'd have called 911 instead. You're right. My bad.

    reading comprehension is not a forte of yours

    Jay I'm the odd man out on this one.

    In this situation things worked out.
    why..... because it was a kid not intent on doing any harm.

    I think not calling 911 right away and exiting the house were mistakes that could have gone very badly for you if there was another far worse intent

    Jen not doing as planned could have been very bad as well


    Because if you're gonna criticize his actions

    I re read it and find all I did was give Jay two points to think about.

    Thanks to all of you for your support, In the aftermath of this I tend to beat myself up as to what could/should I have done better, your responses reaffirm that I did ok.

    Of course there are no posts in this thread to that effect. Duh. I was simply joking that the last time someone else posted an account of a real world incident where that person actually had a firearm and pointed or aimed or otherwise non-shooting used it in a self defense scenario, that person was castigated, and I was kidding that such slams were soon to come here, too. Is all.

    It actually is, but only where it pays money or where it is essential. Casual forum chat, not so much. I'm way too busy to pore meticulously over every word in the forums I visit. Those are for fun.

    Nah, he's over it. He keeps on bringing it up, but he's over it. It's far from his mind. Until he brings it up. But it's behind him. He's over it.






    But he remembers the last time it happened, and will tell you about it.

    Only if it's in the subject matter. I guess I started this in the thread because I was making light of the story, joking about how certain trolls were ready to leap. And true to your trollish behavior, you did jump. So very typical of a goggle-eyed cartoon image, very like a troll in appearance. How fitting.

    And yeah, I do remember things that happen to me. You do not? How quaint.
  • breamfisherbreamfisher Senior Member Posts: 13,702 Senior Member
    You just seem to keep saying you're over being chastised for relaying what has happened to you, but then bring up the supposed chastizing to tell others to be careful lest they be chastized, all the while proclaiming you're over it. Repeatedly.

    But please, continue to tell us how you're over it and not bothered by it.

    Sam, you put "Steely eyed" in three consecutive posts, then claimed injury in another few. I don't want to point fingers, but you're not seeming icy cool right now...

    Back to the OP, OUTSTANDING job.

    Not everyone is afraid to protect their own property, especially in gun friendly states like Fl, and Texas.

    This entire "hide inside and call 911" attitude is foreign to some of us, and the only thing I would have done differently is to ask the wife to call 911 for me, and to have let my dog out when I came out.

    What would have happened if there were 2 or 3 of them, or they had bad intentions? I suspect they would have had a VERY bad night.

    If someone were out side my bathroom window, I may have shot them given both bathrooms are on the second floor.

    I've done the same thing, gone outside with a gun, probably not the smartest thing really but you can't call 911 every time you think you hear something. Especially in the country.

    Smart to arm you're wife with both a gun and phone IMO.
