Was heading back to the Triangle from Winston-Salem and stopped at a CVS along I-40 just east of Greensboro to grab a soda. OC'd inside. As I was getting done paying, a lady walked up on my right and commented, "Oh, he has a gun!" then proceeded to ask the cashier how to get to Danville. The cashier didn't know, so I offered to let the lady look at the state map I had in my vehicle to find a route up. She seemed happy about that and took me up on the offer. I don't think I was much help to her... in the end, she just called her relative who lives there for directions. But she didn't seem *too* uncomfortable with the fact that I was OC'ing. I could tell she was a little taken aback, but I tired to be very friendly and hopefully my offer of assistance will give her a favorable impression of OC'ers in the future. She was from Florida.
So again, no screaming. No running for the hills. No frantic dialing of 911. Just another normal day OC'ing. What a great state!
