Have you ever been mugged? If so, did you fight back?

    Yes and no.  I remained calm, gave up my jewelry and $7 in cash and walked away.

    I was Mugged in London and I fought back, I managed to conflict serious injury to my Mugger, I had a knife and I removed his left eye and also stabbed him in the chest.

    Sure you did.  Right.   And no jail time at all for you either.  Uh huh.

    Not really, there have been several attempts, none successful. 

    Last one was in Basel a few years back.  The guy had a knife, I had a bottle of wine - he ended up in the Hospital with a broke skull, broken arm and herniated testicles.  The police pressed no charges against me.

    Memorable one was 6 years ago in Lagos.  Police officers at a a checkpoint coming from the airport demanded a fine be paid on the spot.  they got their fine money and a bogus credit card.  Cost of doing business in West Africa in general, Nigeria a common occurrence.  NBD - one never argues with a loaded AK stuck in your face.

    I had someone steal a purse right out of my hand when I was walking and they were driving.  A passenger ripped my purse right from my hands.

    The joke was on them.  The purse was empty.  I was just carrying it because it matched my shoes.

    Mugged, no.  Walked in on an armed robbery, yes.

    It was two-on-one, they were both 6'+, I'm not even 5'6". I gave them what I had, it wasn't much. I sometimes fantasize about reacting differently, but the reality is i had no chance.

    Once a guy with a knife tried to rob me so I thought fast and pretended to be gay then I asked him if he wanted to get lucky and I glanced over at some bushes . When he glanced over at the bushes I clocked him in the side of the head with a 6 pack of Lucky lager that I had in a plastic bag. Cheers!
