Have you ever been held up?

I whipped out a knife and he bolted. Thought I was such a bad ass at the time. Damned lucky, that's what I was. Might've gotten hep C or something while bathing in his blood.

No gun was brandished, but a friend and I were "mugged" off of our bikes riding home from a bar at 2:15 after closing. At the last second one of the ruffians pulled out a length of 2x4 and my friend had to swerve to avoid a whack, and another ruffian was close enough to grab the handlebars and take control of the bike. I jumped off mine and we scuffled, they got away on our bikes. We went to nearest doorstop to ask for police and got told no, had to go to the next door to call popo. This was before cellphones. The popo had aparently already been called b/c they showed up right then and we ended up getting our bikes back and I only had a nasty bruise to my forearm to show for it.

I said, you got it buddy, and opened the register. We usually only kept about $50 in change, everything above that got pushed into a locked safe. He grabbed at the money but he was shaking so bad he dropped some of it. He said I want it all and took a bead on me again. I opened the safe and pulled out a cash bag with a few rolls of coins. He must have thought he hit the jackpot and he ran out the door dropping bills here and there. I waited a few minutes and went outside and picked up the money he dropped and put it in a cash register. A cop came in the store not long after, which was weird because I had not had time to call. Maybe someone saw it and called it in.
That kind of messed me up for a while. I quit that job and moved out of the neighborhood which I should have done long before.

Not held up, but broke into while we were home. In college, I was in a 3 bedroom townhouse. I went to bed around 1am, and my one roomie was still up listening to music playing playstation. About an hour later, the volume cranked up rather high. I just thought my roomie was getting drunk and jammin. After about 10min, I poked my head out the room to tell him to turn it the F down. I see a strange guy duck around the corner. WTF. I grabbed a baseball bat I kept in my room and came down the stairs. There were 2 guys pulling apart the TV cables. Apparently, my roomie went to bed with the radio on and left the door unlocked. These guys came in and saw no one was up, turned up the radio to drown out the noise and proceeded to start robbing the place. I hit the one guy high in the shoulder as he started to run, as the other one dashed out the door. The guy I hit made it out the door before I could swing again.

I was jumped/robbed by gangs in Hayward California more times I can count being pretty much the only blonde hair/blue eyed kid. Only one time was a gun pointed at me, a few times threatened with a knife. Only one of those times was I actually stabbed, in the shoulder. I survived because I refused to just cower and take my beating. I would always fight back even though outnumbered like 10 to one or more. Looking back, that might be why I got stabbed though. Lol

I had my face buried in a newspaper and Rob was talking to some guy out the window. He tapped me and told me to get my money out. I looked up and realized that Rob wasn't talking to some old buddy, a guy had climbed up the steps to the cab and had a gun pointed in the window. I gave him the ten bucks I had, Rob did the same, and the dude ran off. He never asked for tools or even Rob's nice wrist watch.

I make it a rule never to date a gal that can hold me up.

Not a gun, but a group threatened me in an arcade when I was a kid while playing Rampage. It was about 5 kids a little older I gave them a couple of quarters then left.

I was on a first date coming out of a movie. 3 little hispanic gangbangers approached us in a parking lot. I heard, "Hey man, give us some money." I ignored them and kept walking. They stepped in front of us and the dude in the middle said, "I don't think you ####ing heard me. Give me your money." His homies starting breaking to the left and right. I broke leather and as soon as they saw my gun they beat feet. The chick I was with started yelling at me for having a gun and demanded I take her home. FML...

Was waiting in a line at the convenience store to get a Lotto ticket and the guy in front of me jumped the counter, showed the gun and told everyone to be still as he emptied the register. His lookout guarded the door. We were all told to not turn around as they ran out into a waiting car. When I went back into my car SWMBO asked if I got the ticket. Said no, they just got robbed. "Before you went in?" " NO, THEY JUST GOT ROBBED!"
Went down to the next store to get my ticket, told them what happened. Clerk said it happens about one a month at that location.
Ticket didn't win.

Not held up - but some gypsies tried to pickpocket me in Paris. I was near the Eiffel Tower and they did this typical ploy of coming up to you with a piece of paper with something written on it. The idea is you look at the paper and while distracted, they get your wallet. Well, I knew about this trick, and I also knew to keep my wallet in my jacket breast pocket and not in my rear jeans pocket.
I felt a hand slip into my rear pocket and my old martial arts training kicked in. This scrawny dude found himself face first in the dirt. I stepped back a bit and stared and he scrambled up and away with his partner
