    Question What Would You Do? Waffle House Robbery

    Lately the waffle houses have been getting rob in my area @ gun point. The gunman comes in a shots into the celing and then rob the place. The waffle house around the corner from me got rob tonight. My question is what would you do if you are sitting down eating a meal and this happens?

    I wouldn't eat ANYWHERE that was being frequently robbed at gunpoint. If I did happen to be in somewhere and a guy starts firing, he's going to come down with a case of "Gold Dot Syndrome."

    I would sit quietly unless I had the stone cold drop on the guy. Or until I thought he was going to kill someone.

    In my mind, he escalated to the point of me fearing for my life when he walked in and immediately shot in the air. So I would put shots into his chest until he was no longer a threat .........or his partner that unknowing came in the back door shoots me in the back of the head.

    On second thought, I think I will sit with atctimmy and eat my pancakes.

    The first part of my plan would be to execute a "tactical finger licking" after than, it all depends on what else is going on, and if I feel my life is in imminent danger.

    They also have totally abysmal Health Safety Ratings, hence, another reason not to go to a Waffle House.

    The Waffle Houses in this area have been getting robbed here for the last 20 years. I remember about 13 years ago someone fired about 9 shots into the Waffle House that sits on a main thoroughfare @ 2:00AM full of patrons. I am glad the only person I hang around mostly now is Mr. Glock 40

    Since every Waffle House I have ever seen is posted as a victim rich zone and such signs have the weight of law in North Carolina I will not be in a Waffle House.

    Yes I agree I will not eat in a Waffle House Restaurant as long as they are posted with no gun signs.

    Here we got Dennys,I would have to be there to consider what my plan of action is,I would prefer to not have to get involved,In Tx I can come to the aid of a 3rd party,but will any action on my part result in a gun fight with people being shot because I wanted to play hero

    Unless my life is in immediate danger of being shot, I'd likely just go with the flow. Of course I'm typing this very relaxed comment as I sip on some herbal tea.

    Sitting in front of a computer does make it a bit easier, doesn't it? : )

    I'm guessing it would be a little tougher to decide in real life.

    Glad to see that most VIP members are not so quick to act like Dirty Harrys.
