I didn't know it was a pastic fork at the time... I thought it was a knife and instinct took over and I punched him right in the nose! I couldn't think of anything else to do... it was reactionary! Of course this was CA several years ago so I wasn't carrying but if that kid did it to the right (or wrong) person, he would have gotten himself killed. He was probably somewhere between 15-18 years old. I don't think I broke his nose but it was bloody as hell when he stood up and walked off screaming "I can't believe you punched me!"
I know kids are dumb and they are gonna do stupid things but play stupid games and you'll win stupid prizes. I have no idea if that deterred him from doing it again but I sure hope so. Little f*cker almost gave me a heart attack!
I had a similar thing happen when I was a bouncer, barrel shoved in my back "give me the money" I spun right, hoped to god he was right handed, he was, grabbed his forearm smashed his face over the counter and kicked his knee as hard as I could before realizing he was holding a stinking butterknife with the handle to me.
I failed to kick his knee right, it didn't break which was too bad.
All funny until this summer I got hired to run a club in Detroit, went in aced the interview had all the references, went in first night going great until a silent partner (13 ish owners) came in and apparently it was his kid that I broke his nose/humiliated him in front of all his friends...... I didn't keep the job 200 bucks a night job too...... aggravating.
