    Don't forget the benefit of being offered crack to put some "Freezone" in an air conditioner.

    Old hotel, wish I knew where it was in vegas, turned section 8 had window shakers. Had one guy working, the other watching. Parked around the back of the place I was staying a guy ran up to me and said man don't leave this parked here they will steal everything you own before you get done, he kindly watched my van for me for $5, I offered. At the same place a man and a woman got into an argument, woman punched the guy in his face, so he slammed her on the ground, cops came and they both went to jail. Went back to the office and told the dispatcher and the owner that if I was sent back there that I would be dropping my van off.

    At a 7-11 on Charleston in LV, my dad was told by the manager to leave, he didn't care about what they had called in. My dad told them, but it is your policy that we go by a certain time. The manager informed him that the last 3 saturday nights there had been shooting in his parking lot. needless to say, he left and returned in the morning.

    Don't do that anymore, work on markets, some can be in the ghetto, but still seems safer.

    I got jumped in naked city once dude hit me over the head with a brick, as my knees where buckling I fell into a tree and stayed on my feet. As I stood up I started to rush the guy and my wife grabs me and tells me to get int the truck I ran to the truck and got out of there. Naked city ain't no joke.

    Day time always safer than night. Oh and it helps to not be buying any illegal substances.

    I dont deal with anything like detroit or st louis but Harrisburg has its ghetto like anywhere else. Our company is pretty decent about letting you decide for yourself if you wanna run the call. Whenever im walking through the rough areas i take my .38 from the glove box and put it in my tool bag. When im walking down the sidewalk with my bag on my shoulder my hand is on the gun. No one better even bump into me or theyre getting a hollow point to the noggen.
