    Having just moved to a "culturally diverse" area of town, I have encountered a couple of suspicious characters hanging around and have made sure that they noticed me give them the look over and then a stare right in their eyes. I haven't seen them again. Some might question this but they were hanging around by my entrance and on my sidewalk so I let them know that I noticed them and could pick them out of a lineup if I needed to.

    My kids think I am the nicest, coolest dad ever and that's all that matters to me. Let everyone else think I'm scary. Makes life easier.
    There are 2 sounds in the world that strike more fear than any others. A click when you should hear a bang and a bang when you should hear a click.

My wife manages a beauty salon and sometimes I will stop by to drop off lunch for her, or just to say hello. Every one of her co-workers has told her I scare them. I have left her office and her clients will say, "Your husband is scary!"

    I used to work at the local community center and I started a pee-wee sports class for kids too little to play organized sports. The class gave them a different sports skill each week to work on. Many of the parents commented to my boss that they were surprised how good I was with the children. I guess when you have that ex-con look, people assume you are #1-ignorant and #2-violent, and #3-bad with kids. The funny part was, the kids would run into the gym and hug on my legs. The one kid told his mom he wanted to be just like "Mr. Rick!"

    My appearance fits my current position much better.
    Mr. Rick, My 9 year old saw your picture and say's, eww HE'S SCAREY! who's that? I said he's Mr. Rick the room security guy I hired to come get you if you DON'T KEEP YOUR ROOM CLEAN.

    She looked at me funny and said, WHATEVER!

    Yeah, I get that a lot. Owned a little Honda when I was a kid, but never after that. Mom was an EMT and told me many horror stories of cycle accidents so that basically kept me away from them.

    Eww? I knew I was a hit with the ladies. My 14 year old daughter gives me the same look and the same 'whatever' so they never grow old of that! Also, she will have a sleep over with a bunch of her friends and at first when a new friend comes over, they are taken back. After they realize I am just a big ole' goof, they warm up to me. One of my favorite things to do is when I get home from work and one of the kids has a friend over for the night, I walk in, look them right in the eyes as mean as I can, and I say, "What are YOU doing in MY house!" The ones that I now know just say things like, 'whatever I want!' or 'just cleaining out your fridge!'. The ones who I don't know look at me in horror, then look at my kid like 'what the hell did you just get me in to?'

    My wife always tells them to pay me no mind. I am just a big teddy bear.

    LOL!

    Actually my Mom just threatened to use her station wagon run over any motorcycle I might bring home.
    Now that I am older, and married, my wife has promised to tell mom where i hide the thing if I ever buy one. LOL!

    Actually I only talk about getting one to mess with them. A friend of mine rear ended a wasp with his eyeball a while back and killed any aspersions of mine to sneak out and come home with a trike. Yeouch!!!
