A while ago three guy friends of mine were at the park with me down the street from my house, and as it was getting dark 6 or 7 huge black guys showed up at the park. I was trying to hurry the guys out of there but they wouldn't listen to me. When we were finally on our way back to my place the black guys were following us. They told me to walk ahead without them and they all walked with the black guys, talking and such. Couldn't hear what they were talking about, but the moment they walked into the shadows where the street lamps couldn't reach I heard Rob scream,"What the F*ck!!!" I couldn't see anything and had no idea what to do. Run to my house and get a bat? Run to the nearest house and have them grab a bat!
I've never felt so helpless..
But they were alright, they ran back to my house and licked their metaphorical wounds. It was like they had their man-hood stripped away, 'cause had I been with them while they were jumped there wouldn't have been anything they could do to protect, and they know that.
So they started talking about buying guns and going to the gym. xD ROFL.
I've been meaning to invest in some pepper spray
MY POINT IS::
Don't depend on a man to protect you. Keep some pepper spray as Fabala said, and make sure your cell is able to call 911.
