    Thumbs up Have you ever had to pull that on anyone?

    I was at Lowe's yesterday picking up some shelving for the new place when an older guy in line behind me asked me if I "ever had to pull that on anyone?" I replied "Thank God no! I pray that I never have to." He smiled and I went on my way.

    I go there a LOT since moving into this rent house and the staff there are always friendly and polite and NEVER mention it and I KNOW some have noticed that I am carrying but I guess my appearance, demeanor and repeated presence has them figuring I am "OK."

    ONCE, several years back in VA, I had a Lowe's employee hold up his hands jokingly ask if I was going to rob them. I replied "heck no!" and let it drop right there and continued with my question on an item's location and my shopping without further incident.

    +Lowe's Lowes overall!

    Here is how I normaly look when I am out and about:
    Speedy: LOCAL League Sec/Treasurer, Information Officer
    AKA: Hero Hog, Dr. Speed, "The Brass Mangler" and "That fat, old, balding, Grey-bearded gimpy guy"

    I don't have NEAR enough ammo on hand. `nuff said.

    Been there a few times Hero.

    Never was of my choosing, ended well, but would have been happier if they had not occurred. Much prefer to go quietly about my business.
    Better to not open your mouth and be thought the fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.
