    Wow... When I worked at Walmart, I don't remember anything specific like that in those CBL (or whatever they were called) things we had to take.

    We had that when I worked at IKEA of all places. The organization that conducted ours was run by two former Feds - one of which investigated Watergate, and the other was an advisor to OJ's prosecutorial team. For two former LEO's, the information they gave everyone made me :roll: .

    I think that situational awareness comes into play once again.

    You forgot the part where they recommend you die quietly so as not to disturb the other employees or patrons, and this could also further aggravate your assaulter.

    Small companies ftw.

    Was it suggested that you vomit on yourself to make yourself less appealing to your attacker?

    Did you keep saying things like
    "You could just shoot them right?"
    "You know, I've heard that lead, when traveling at high speeds, is an effective violence resolver..."
    "Mozambique, Mozambique, Mozambique"

    :lol:

    Like, that attacker is just begging to be shot by doing that, so I complied.


    Right. "Back" indicates something in return or after the fact. Do not do this. Rather, defend yourself at the moment you are attacked.

    OK.

    Like the office gun nut?

    I went through it in 1991....ahhh the memories. My favorite is when the series commander was my Line training buddy and forgot to put his arm up to block a face kick. I bet he never forgot again. :lol:
