Breaking up fights is not easy or recommended in many cases. It's OK not to get involved if you don't know the people, but if it is your best friend getting his face pummeled then you are probably going to do something.
Verbal commands and professional intimidation can go a long ways without getting physically involved. But they certainly don't always work. You could always try telling them that the cops are coming in, or something like that. Again it might not work.
Pepper spray is a great option, but not inside, when a crowed is involved.
Abort the Obamanation not the Constitution
Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
In general terms, unless they involve friends or family of mine, I tend to steer clear of interfering personally in fights because of too many horror stories featuring potential heroes getting stabbed to death. Not good…
I’m timeless like a broken watch
I bounced for a year and we used flashlights as a means of communication (if I needed a bouncer, I would flash my flashlight at them) because the music was too loud...
alls well that ends well I guess. Kind of negative reinforcment though. (Breaking up a fight usually doesn't end up so well.)
You win the BLANKY prize for funniest story though!
