    Weird occurrence at lunch today. Wondering if I should've handled differently.

    I went to local eatery for lunch today. I ordered sammy then sat at table (alone) to wait for my take out order.

    I am sitting there looking at my phone. Next thing I know some dude is standing over me shouting "sit down, shut the fuck up and stay there". I look up and the dude's balls are right in my face. He yells again, "you sit there and shut your fucking mouth". I briefly think about punching in the balls but I look up shrug and say nothing. He yells again then leaves. He had a back pack so I was slightly nervous he was packing heat.

    Obviously he didnt pull out a gun as I am writing this now. But what if he had a gun or knife? I could've diffused quickly with a donkey punch in the nuts but for some reason - I did nothing.

    Am I a puss puss? I am having doubts about my masculinity right now.

    Often times wisdom is found in silence and declining to react.
    You did well--you live to fight another day, smitty.

    You did the right thing brother. You never know what the F people are going to do now a days. Now if he just straight attacked you and you defended yourself, that's a different story. So, I assume this dude was talking straight to you? I probably would have started laughing.

    You probably did the right thing, I’m sure I wouldn’t have been as calm as you, so good job for not doing damage. Better than getting charges.

    I don’t think what you did was wrong. You saved yourself some legal trouble. That said, anytime someone aggressive gets up in your face you gotta make some space. Stand up and get some distance between you. Otherwise, dude might have been quick to attack.

    I think you were smart on not giving a reaction, that’s what he wanted.

    Sounds like the dude was batsh!t crazy... You did the right thing. It's one thing if the dude was fu*king with you to be a dik, but he was probably just off his meds. I have sympathy for crazy folk.

    Thanks fellas. The more I think about it I bet the dude was off his meds. I woulda looked like a first class prick for donkey punching an actual sick person in the nuts.

    Bahahaha. You remember that? I was probably 18 back then. That was a crazy day! I wonder what happened to the dude that started that by dropping in on me (I forgot his name). He would be super old (Barry's age) by now!

    weird ass threade lol,but yea u did the right thing.violence isn't the answer,just a last resort.its 2019,u can think ur good meanwhile 4 ppl standin nearby record the whole thing on their phones.and punchin someone in the nuts rarely defuses the situation lol,thats throwin gas on the fire.because after the squirm around on the ground for 30 seconds theyr gonna get up and beat the fuk out of u.be a bitch,no need for the pride.

    now why someone had their balls in ur face lol,thats another subject

    Fark dude that's kinda gnarly. Guy was probably mentally ill. Totally unpredictable. You de-escalated the situation with your composure, although you were rightfully nervous. Of course you did the right thing, nobody got hurt and you live to fight another day.

    that's a victory in my book

    What kind of sammich was it?
    Those things have been known to trigger the mentally deficient.
    If it was a turkey club then that explains the whole incident.

    True... "the nuclear option" as they say. Always better to avoid a fight if you can. I don't think you could have handled the situation any better.
