People recognize me....(bragging off)
I thoroughly disapprove of duels.
If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand
and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.

As a former police officer, I can't tell you how many robberies started in a parking lot with some sort of approach like, "do you have a match," or do you have change for a 5?" I do not let people approach me. Not long ago while on vacation in Tahoe, A guy tried to approach me as I was getting the door for my wife in a parking lot. I moved so the car was between me and the guy. I told him to stop where he was. We had a short conversation and he left. Better safe than sorry.

Admittedly, I probably would scream like the above.

Last line needs a little clarification if I remember correctly:

one good thing is you won't fall for that again, and nothing bad happened this time...

I think you did about as good as a person could (regardless of semi-fame). IMHO, we live in a civil society, and BG have the advantage
Initiative +1 on rolls for those who have ever played a RPG.
So until your fame grows, and you have bodyguards to take care of the situation, what else could you do but learn.

I've got two of them....
It's plastic and it looks nothing like any sort of weapon with which people are familiar. It look innocuous and I flat guarantee that a potential BG won't see it as a threat until he's flat on his .... back. Then you own him. I have two of them. Great for places I don't normally carry a firearm, like when I take my daughter to the county fair or chaperone a school field trip. It's a slightly "large-ish" key fob. I think that use of such an impact weapon would be far superior to any chemical spray.
