    I agree ...... but sometimes .....sometimes .....a bully needs to be corrected. All though it's rare sometimes they need to be and if you are capable maybe you should. Of course that was before the OSDA and people weren't carrying often

    You missed one, "do unto others as you would have them do unto you"

    While I am by no means a religious man I do believe that the good book has some solid advice as to how to lead your life. Sometimes folks are just having one of those days and lose it for whatever reason.( I raise my hand) I try to keep this in mind when dealing with aggressive types. May not be a bad person, just life has thrown them a wrench that they can't deal with at that moment.
    Calm, respectful actions almost always defuse these folks, now occasionally you run into a jackass that just needs his/her I's dotted and T's crossed.

    I've learned 'that the secret to rarely being upset with people' is to stay the heck away from them as much as possible. But I guess I'm an 'ol grouch anyway :blah:

    Oh I don't know about that. When I lived in Kansas many of the farmers gathered at a local eatery on Sunday mornings with their wives. Seems that all the farmers did was *****ed about the weather and all the wives just *****ed about the farmers.
