Sometimes it is a PITA and you are just running down to the grocery store or whatever, but anything can happen, anywhere, to anyone.
FWIW, good actions, minus the already stated 1) no firearm, and 2) not telling them to send a car now (send a car if I'm dead).
I would look at this as hope for the best, and prepare for the worst. It seems as if your ordeal turned out ok, but it could have just as easily gone real bad. This might have been an ambush as you suspected but for whatever reason didnt happen... I too think having a weapon on my hip would have made me feel much better. Stay safe!
