Things I shoulda remembered

Scene: my house
Setting: Half-awake, stumbling around in bathrobe
Event: Sound of someone letting themselves into house, security cam footage showing unfamiliar vehicle parked out front
What actually happened: Me forgetting that a contractor was coming by today
Now trending on Twitter: #IsThatAnUzi

Fortunately the contractor is pretty laid back and no one’s feelings were hurt. Most folks seeing a guy in a bathrobe holding an Uzi at port arms wouldn’t have been as cool about it.

    • If I have a moment, I’ll grab the Uzi. It’s short, has a light, *very* compact indoors, and has 2 32-round mags with it, and can be one-handed if necessary. Failing that, there’s all sortsa Glocks laying around here.

  1. For bonus points, what movie used that line?
    “You know, that would make a great TV commercial? ‘Excuse me, is that an Uzi?’ ‘Why, yes it is. Hey, self-defense is no laughing matter! That why when I want number one I pack an Uzi… accept no substitutes.’

  2. Buddy of mine was a 1LT at Fort Knox back in the day. Had to break up fights between different Brigade or Battalion Enlisted guys at the on-post club every weekend.

    The one tried and true method was the responding MPs simultaneously chambering a round into a shotgun. There is no sound in the world like it and everyone knows what it means.

  3. Just last week similar situation. Middle of night heard someone running through our house. Propped up out of bed with weapon of choice ready for the fight.
    Went room by room in search of who it could be.
    Then I heard the noise above me on the roofline and realized it was large patches of ice melting and falling to the ground.
