    Lowe's Hardware in Hickory NC

    Walked into Lowes today to pickup a water filter as I have done for the past 7 years and a customer approaching me pushing a buggy stopped me ask asked with a smart attitude 'why do you carry a gun in lowe's'? Well I could tell he was trying to push my buttons and i was in no mood for a smart azz today. I said tactfully because I can and then asked him if he carries a cell phone. He gave me a funny look and i said which had you rather have a cell phone or a gun if someone started shooting at this very moment. He looked dazed and glazed and walked off I just smiled and went on my business. I don't mind educating a person with a legitimate question but you can tell when they are plain out being an azz to put it bluntly. Just had to tell you guys as and what are your thoughts?

    That's the guy that deserved the "Because I have a small penis" line. Say it with a straight, slightly sad face, and a sigh.
