Ok here we go .
This was a dream last night .
I have spent my whole adult working life in auto service ( over 30 years)
The last 15 or so in management and at service counter .
Here was dream a young lady comes to counter 25 years old or so
I can see in here eyes shes on meth / speed . She never said a word.
She reachers over counter and bites me on sholder and chest I pull her over counter
and we are now on ground behind counter .
It was a very vivid dream it kept me awake to say the least for a while.
It got me thinking , what would have been next action .
For me I think I would have went for EDC flesh only knife in right rear pocket for starters.
The shop I was working for in past was not in good hood .
I never left home with out EDC firearm and knife.
It seems we all get tunnel vision some times about robbery .
This dream was not about robbery it was just some crazy wild person .
It could indeed happen in these days and times .

Dreams are sneaky, in that they sometimes ignore the realities of time and distance. The average counter is around 24" wide. Most people do not stand with their body against the counter. So, if you are standing 6" back from the counter, that means that she has to reach 30" over the counter and still maintain the height to bite you on the shoulder and do it all in a time frame that you are unable to avoid or counter her actions.

Find a new brand of cologne, apparently the one your wearing drives the women crazy!

Heck, I'm doing well if my dreams obey the laws of physics, much less time and distance.

Be thankful it was just your shoulder that got bit. It could have been Loraina Bobbit.

and send the old one to me! Find a new one...! What are you thinking man? Sounds to me like the old one is working. So some of the prospects are a bit ...feisty.

Did you recognize the service dept. in the dream? Maybe it was a hint where your new job will be.

Dam a Bobbit reference! Come on, almost forgot about that one. THAT HAD TO HURT LIKE HELL

To me it signifies uncertain times, and a fear that the customer will 'chew you out' for something and you'll be helpless to defend yourself. It's also a reaction to the stress of hearing lurid stories and thinking about fighting zombies, and so your mind translated it into a 'horror movie' format.

Even stranger, wife and I both has simular dreams on the same night and no apparent reason known to either of us.
I said something about my dream and she told her and they were strangely simular.

My Freudian analysis? You vaguely remember nursing your young mother as a baby, and the young girl in your dream is your mother giving you payback for all the times you bit down too hard.

I NEVER remember my dreams, but ever since we bought our first house last month, I wake up and remember my dreams pretty frequently. The last one I had was very vivid. A man was in his car in my driveway (in my dream). He said something to me, but I didnt understand. I told him to hold on a second, and, even though I knew I shouldnt, I opened my front door, placing my foot behind it 'just in case'. As soon as the door cracked, the man shoved it open, and I stumbled back onto the stairs. The last thing I remember before waking up is a baseball bat coming straight toward my face!
Learned my lesson from that dream, and told the dream to my girlfriend and warned her to be careful when she's home alone during the day. Just a couple days later a man parked in the driveway and came to the door. She said she got a bad vibe, and didnt answer it as the man seemed to have had no business at our house. Coincidence? Not sure, but now we have a dog that she just couldn't justify before this instance...
