So I saw another post about a mom and I have one too!
When my mom was a young woman (maybe 18 or 19), back in 1950-something, she worked at a now defunct Red Owl Grocery. Now, bear in mind that my mom is very petite. And, when she was a teen, she was TINY! “Smallest waist in the county” so the story goes and she’s something like 5′2″. All that to say - she looks less than intimidating.
Anyhow, her manager was a real scuzz. Used to hit on her a LOT. Every day he’d creep on her and she’d put up with it, like you do - you know?
Anyway, one day he got super handsy - backed her into a corner and stuff. She managed to get away from him and warned him to back off. Well, shit head didn’t listen - like, was all “what you gonna do about it?”
So my mom reached over where they had the knives for the deli and grabbed a big-ass butcher knife and winged it right at him. It slammed into the wall 2 inches from dude’s head and stuck there.
Dude never went near her again.
Mom also said she’s missed. She was aiming for his head.
And that’s how I learned my mom may have tried to kill someone once.
But he had it coming.
