    How dumb can you be. LOL!

    I was working on one of our customers sites yesterday when this happened.
    I was in my work uniform, and had my I.D. badge clipped on. At any rate I was coming in one of the side doors after a trip to the van to get a fresh battery for my drill and a few odd tools. As I opened the inside door a lady was walking out, so I stopped and held it for her, this is where the fun begins.

    At first she smiled at me and then suddenly froze with a wierd expression on her face. I stood there a second wondering why she stopped. When she finally spoke, I was startled for a second (in a semi terrified voice) "you aren't going to shoot me?!.... are you!?" For a second I thought my weapon was showing, but then I reallized she staring at my drill. I said "What? with a drill?"
    and then turned it on for a second so she could hear the sound of it. At that point she emitted a shakey very high pitch very nervous laugh, and got out of there in a big hurry. My coworked and I got a big kick out of it.

    What makes me a bit nervous is this isn't the first time it has happened. There have been two others, one was a bank teller another was a security guard who fortunately wised up mere seconds before tackling me. The one with the teller invold my old bright yellow Dewalt drill. The one the guard and the lady yesterday panicked over was a dark blue Bosch.

    Here is a pic of a drill similar to mine.

    This leaves me with 3 questions.

    #1 are people really that stupid?

    #2 do I really look like a stereotypical BG?

    #3 what color should I paint the drill, before some nutjob pepper sprays me or worse.

    Not your fault in any way!!! Its the time in our history we live in. Some women have had very frightening experiences with men and so man is their natural enemy. Example, where I go for my eye exam there is a slight built women and we got talking one day about shooting somehow. She explained that now she carry's a gun in her purse she is so scared. I would never intrude on a person to ask why but she was one scared lady. I can understand her as an example running into someone at a utility door and getting very jumpy.
    From early on kids in school are taught to be afraid of everything they don't have the natural outdoor life we had years ago where you fell out trees, fell down hills rode your bike all over the place, now its different and un-natural. Nature is calming and without the abilty to see natural things and experience rough outdoors I believe we have generated a very nerve racked society.

    Apparently.

    Apparently.

    #3 what color should I paint the drill, before some nutjob pepper sprays me or worse.
    Hot pink with a floral pattern?

    Nail guns - now there you have ''assault toolery'' LOL!

    FortyFive ......... it may perhaps help you re pics generally - I put up a mini site some while ago to help folks on THR with general image matters and also suggestions re posting. Broadly that could help you I think.

    If you want to take a peek go to Look here - 'Image Matters'

    Puce.

    Or you could paint it deadly assault black, since it is clearly an assault weapon.
