Comments: Bug Man Blues

He still knows where you careful. I would tell the company why I won't do business with them any longer, for the sake of some oher unsuspecting woman. Too creepy. Made me mad just reading what happened to you.

Got yer back, Key. Say when and where. Not a morning person but I'll make an exception.

.. he grabbed your ponytail?... you should have decked the guy...

I woulda deck him the second he touched me! Be careful. At least call the police station and alert them of the situation so they can keep an eye on your house too.

Buy a gun and learn to use it.

Man, I'm so sorry you had to go through this. That is one creepy fellow.

Butcher knife. One solid thrust in the ribcage, then a follow-up to the nutsack.

What a piece of shit.

THIS is exactly why I refuse to be the only one at home when workmen have to come inside the house. Although our bug man is great, I still insist that my mom is home when he comes.

I'm thinking that Mr Bugman should be missing more than just one tooth on the bottom after that stunt.

Idiots. Easy to say Beat His Ass! A woman doesn't engage a stranger who has already shown a propensity for physical assault by starting a fistfight in her most vulnerable place, i.e. inside her house, alone.

The fool has already telegraphed he is capable of assault and battery. What if he has a knife? A gun? Key did the exact right thing. Go outside. Take her dog. If she wants to kick his ass outside, where he belonged to have it kicked, fine.

But a smart woman seeks safe harbor. She can be all that after the fact.

Well done, Key. All you could do, under the circumstances. Although I'll be happy to ensure it won't happen again.

Getting out of the house, teaming up with the dog and canceling the service was the way to go.

Agreed. Teaming with the pooch and out the front door was the best course of action.

Still, as I read over this whole episode, I couldn't help but to think, "Good ole Southern hospitatlity be damned--don't you know these people watch Desperate Housewives?!"

I am with Acidman on this one. Be ready and able. You can always decide not to -- but if you're not prepared -- you never will be able to decide to.

That's scary.
