    It seems there is always someone who just has to make a horse’s posterior of themselves when being courteous can be so much easier, as an example we had our car club meeting at a local Mexican restaurant I ordered unsweet tea but was twice served sweet tea. The third time I ordered I specified unsweet no sugar, got the tea I wanted and no drama.

    Use to be a time when there would be a big ol bartender with pick handle behind the bar to deal with such riff-raff. I sure do miss those days.

    It is amazing how rude and obnoxious people can quickly get. That situation could have easily turned into an attempted mass shooting, one just never knows.
    You did the right thing, but this dirtbag will live on to make more people miserable until 'life' really catches up with him...hopefully, soon.

    Nope. You must have missed the part where the OP was carrying.

    Naturally, I called the law. Not the blanking law. I didn't see this as a vice problem. So I just called the regular law.
    now that's funny

    Haha, sounds like an interesting night. I've only ever seen one customer like that really, but I happened to come in at the tail end of it when the male manager yelled at them to get out and never come back. They got out.

    Good job on prepping to defend the nice lady with less-than-lethal force, I'd have done the same. Then again, I don't know how well I'd have restrained myself when he threatened her. I'd have probably opened my mouth at that point. Now I'm only 22 so I don't remember most members "good ol days" but I was definitely raised to have a lot more respect for people than that. And you'd never catch me speaking to a woman in that manner. People these days never cease to amaze me with just how horrible they can act.

    Note to self: Tell someone to do something anatomically impossible to themselves and ROFL while their eyes roll back into their head trying to decipher that.

    OP you did an excellent job of being a proactive witness, it would be hard to sit there and listen to a grown man threaten a woman like that but you held your cool.

    Glad it didnít escalate into more than it did. Good job. I wonder how many people just watched the show but didnít call it in.

    I am glad no one was hurt. I hate people who are inconsiderate, disrespestful and just down right rude. Someone needs to teach him some manners.

    I meant that it could have been an 'attempted' one...correction made to clarify...
