What people are you afraid to mess with?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (17706points) April 24th, 2016

Librarians and convenience store clerks are on my list as well as police officers. What careers are you scared into not messing with? Also a psychiatrist on his turf.
Humor welcome.

I know women who are militant about breast feeding and home birth and anti-vaccination and raw milk and homeopathy. Except for the vaccination, it’s harmless outside their family, so I don’t engage.

Ones who leave me no choice but to kill them.

Cops and wait staff.

I don’t mess with anybody who is holding something sharp—a scalpel, say, or a dentist’s drill—in close proximity to some tender part of my body. Or anybody who is performing eye surgery or a colonoscopy on me. Just a matter of principle, you understand.

I literally don’t understand what would make a person choose to live with that level of stress on a daily basis.

Other drivers.

I’ll never again give the bird to an asshole who rides my ass or cuts me off. I did a few months ago and a heavy set white man in his late 50s/early 60s turned around and chased after me. Luckily I was able to get away from the freak.

@dammitjanetfromvegas Yikes, what a creep. Ya know, I carry a spray bottle of ammonia in my car, confront me and I’m going to zap you in the face. haha

I had a similar incident, @dammitjanetfromvegas, but in my case I didn’t even gesture. The driver in front of me was screwing off before an exit, so I went around. Pissed him off. Young white guy with a girl in car. Chased me at least 20 miles, at one point actually thinking he had me cornered and getting out of the car.
We’re just lucky they weren’t carrying.
