Randy Harris offers an excellent post on warriortalk.com on how to survive a violent encounter. The Suarez International instructor’s essay contains this riff on ye olde “avoid stupid people in stupid places doing stupid things” meme. “Point two is avoiding whores. I’m not only referring to the street walking types, but also to picking up random people in bars. Not only is there the very real concern for contracting sexually transmitted diseases, but the possibility of angry boyfirends [sic], husbands, ex boyfriends and ex husbands, girlfriends and wives, etc. You probably do not want to be sitting there flirting with his girl when the guy who has decided he’s had enough of her running around on him shows up with a gun . . .
Being involved with women (or men) who are involved in other relationships is the fast track to ending up in a violent confrontation with the other point of that love traingle [sic]. A guy who lived in my apartment building in college was stabbed in the heart with a steak knife and died after an argument with his lover over his running around on them. Best advice is to avoid problems like that it altogether if possible.”
Fair enough? Doable?
