Personal Space

Uncle throws this one out as part of a HouseOfMouse experience:
And, often, they’ll get a bit too close and in the personal space of someone used to carrying a gun, who’s not a fan.
(Please note, no Brits or others were harmed in the writing of that blog post.)

I'm big on personal space. My own, and observing others' space. I hate having people close to me. Last week some lady in the checkout at the grocery store was literally bumping my arm with her elbow as she stood behind me. I wish I'd had a nice juicy fart on deck for her, but no such luck - so I had to make do with an exaggerated dig in my pocket for my keys, which just happened to dig my elbow into her shoulder on the way out. Oops.

Oh, I hear this one, loud and clear! Nothing worse that having to stand in line except when you get crowded when you do it. I tend to move a lot more while in a line to keep that personal space a bit more open for me... when that fails, I have been known to "accidentally" return the favor with a pointed elbow or stiletto heel.

I was going to try the stiletto heel approach, but my balance is terrible - and finding them in a men's 13 is so difficult!
