Life Tip

THE FOLLOWING IS NOT BY ME

"I got robbed at gunpoint years ago while working 3rd shift at a gas station. He drug me into the bathroom and pointed the gun at my head, then told me to turn around and face the wall. I had been doing all he asked until then, but at that moment my Aunt's voice came into my head telling me the only thing she ever would say when I asked her about surviving the Holocaust. She told me "Remember that it's easier for someone to shoot you in the back than to shoot you in the face. Never turn around. Make them look you in the eye."

  13. Man, I would hate to be in that situation. My brother got robbed at gunpoint while selling flowers, but luckily he took most of his money out of his wallet and put it in his sock about 30 mins before the guys robbed them.

  22. Since he survived to tell the story of what happened I imagine he didn't get shot, at least not in the head. But I'd love to know how that story ended.
