    I asked this once before but I'll throw it out again.

    Did you react the way you did by choice or because you couldn't think of what else to do?

    The only thing I think you could have done better was say, very loud and clear, "Please back away and leave me alone". That way, anyone not paying attention can get up to speed on who is bothering who.

    I have had the same feeling plenty of times. We all have our "What would John Wayne have done" moments. In the end, you protected your daughter and were not goaded into doing something stupid. Good enough.

    If you can walk, do the walk! There is no shame in diffusing a situation. Although, letting someone, in that situation, get to your table, while you are sitting, is way to close. And I would prefer to be the one calling 911.

    I think your experience just illustrates that any of us can find ourselves in a situation we swore we wouldn't let happen. But it does happen because as hard as we try to prepare for every scenario, sometimes things catch us at a weak point.

    The key is to adapt and overcome. Don't stop thinking and don't stop adjusting your tactics.

    After it's over, we have a new set of skills and knowledge. I'll bet if something like this happened again you would be on your feet before the aggressor reached your table.
