Are any of you like me in that your reactions to verbal abuse changes depending on whether or not you are armed? Myself I am willing to accept verbal abuse when I am armed. I was far more likely to react with snide comments before I started carrying a weapon. When I am armed this is always in my mind when being challenged verbally. 'Is this worth someone dying over'.
Refusing a gift would be very rude and has nothing to do with the store from which it was purchased. That is a loaded question that has nothing to do with the oldnfat's dislike of wally world. If someone thought enough of you to buy you a gift, you should not refuse it. Any semi-mature adult knows this. The staggering number of crimes committed at those stores is enough reason to not shop there. There are plenty of other reasons, including but not limited to treatment of employees and the simple fact that they claim to be the "lowest price" when they typically are not, that prevent me from giving them ANY of my money. Though this question was not directed at me, I felt the need to answer it as I feel the same way. I will also say that that was a sad way to try to bait oldnfat into answering so you could prove some type of weak point that has absolutely nothing to do with the OP's question. His answer about not shopping at wally world, however, would have prevented this specific incident and was relevant.
Oldnfat, I apologize if I have spoken for you and you do not agree with my statements, but I posted my dislike of wally world and felt necessary to comment.
