Here are some stories that have happened to me when I was unarmed long ago.
1. Stayed in a motel while travelling through New York. Guy knocks on the door at 11:30pm. I checked the peep hole and a guy in his mid twenties was standing there with something in a brown paper sack. I said through the door what do you want? He said I want to talk to Trey. I said loudly you got the wrong room man. He asked again I want to talk to Trey, and I answer again no Trey, here you got the wrong room. I called hotel security and put a table in front of the door. He never came back.
2. I was staying in a hotel in South Carolina, as I was travelling with my father this time to a convention. 4:00 am or so heavy knocking on the door. I get up half asleep and look through the peep hole. A lady dressed in all black clothing. I yell you got the wrong room. Called the front desk but, she left by the time they got around to sending a guard to check.
3. This one happend in the late afternoon. I was coming out of my room and a car pulls up. Five men get out in very nice suits. They all look at me and ask if I had a light? I said no and hurried around the corner while he was still trying to speak to me. I wasn't even going to give them a chance to get close to me.
4. This happend to a good friend of mine. He took his family down to Orlando, and stayed in a cheaper motel in order to save money. They stayed on the second floor. Guy comes through the sliding glass door with a towel over his head. Robs them at gun point. Locks the kids in the bathroom and makes my friend and his wife lay on the floor while he takes their money. No one got hurt. They found out later there were several robberies reported at that location.
All the motels/hotels I stayed in I paid about 100 dollars or more a night so, they were not cheap places. I never stay in budget places for safety reasons. My friend however stayed in a cheaper place.
Anyone else have some motel/hotel stories? or stories were you were in a situation unarmed? I didn't carry anything back then..not even pepperspray.
