Ok. So we went to change banks today. As we're signing paperwork and such with the branch leader lady, I asked about the "Oh Shit" button under the teller desks and such. I said that's good! Glad to see them! Didn't know they actually had them in banks like that. She made a casual joke about "Better watch this guy next time he comes in on a Saturday..." which was funny and we laughed. Then after a while, we were talking about driver's licenses and needing to change addresses on there since we moved and that's illegal. And I said "Yeah last time I got pulled over, I was worried since I hadn't changed the address on my personal handgun permit yet, but it all worked out ok and checked out." And her face changed about 1000% from smiles to serious. Why would that bother you lady? I don't bring it into banks, schools or anywhere illegal. I'm worried about the locations such as banks and so on, that would attract trouble to me or my family. Clearly, if I make a comment about safety in a bank, bulletproof glass, or teller button for the police.... Wouldn't I be the kind to have personal protection to keep myself and my family safe? Why would you freak out about that? I didn't carry it inside or make the slightest threat in any manner. Hell. I was signing up for an account and giving my name, address, income, social security number and more.
Does anyone else see an issue with asking safety questions (observations) and then openly sharing that you have personal protection in your car or home? I think that's completely understandable personally. Does anyone get this sort of thing when mentioning PP?
