During the course of the 25 years that I worked out in the field for Southern Bell and BellSouth, I was robbed 4 time and shot at once. The last time was in 1985 while working in Boynton Beach, FL. Trust me, I can still remember what that guy looked like!!

Mostly, I remember the gun!! He had a really nasty looking Browning Hi-Power that he held in front of my nose. At that range, the 9mm hole in the front of it was at least 4" in diameter!! The only good part about that was the fact that I could clearly see that the thumb safety was engaged. As long as his thumb stayed away from the safety, I was good to go. I gave him no cause to disengage the safety.
He got the $28 that I had with me and ran off between two houses. Never to be seen again. I'm sure that the Boynton Beach Police didn't knock themselves out looking for him. A $28 robbery was small potatoes and nobody got hurt. The phone company refused to reimburse my loss. And they were nice enough to send me back to the same (to quote President Trump) "shithole" neighborhood, on the wrong side of the tracks, the next day!!
No description of the suspects?!! I call bullshit on our wanna-be Attorney General!! If he doesn't remember what those guys looked like, he was not robbed!!! Can you say publicity stunt??? If you have a gun pointed at your nose, you damn well remember the man pointing it at you!! FOR SURE!!
