102. You did try!

Respect!


Here's my too-long story: hubby bought me a small 25 Beretta handgun because he thought I could be in danger working in a field construction trailer. He was right! One evening after everyone had left & I was gathering my things, one roughneck employee knocked & told me his time chart wasn't correct. My error was that I had not yet locked the door. Smelling alcohol & suspecting something was up, I sat behind my desk & put my hand inside my purse. As he too quickly made his intentions obvious, I put the gun in his face, holding it with both hands. Never been so scared in my life! The guy immediately left & I immediately called the cops. He was picked up & charged with drunk driving & spent the weekend in jail. His wife, I was told, refused his bail. He was fired. (So yes, I carried & was glad I did.) Why do some men think they can do these things?!
