Just because I am a concealed carrier doesn't mean that I stopped running into jerks. The issue with being assertive ccw illinois is that there's always a chance that the individual will react aggressively or negatively. I'll give an example from my own life.

is?TTbc6MA-Dh-EDwLqyZuwN-TcJZDLSDJNnbNkMReasonable note: I hate the holiday season. By the period of November to just after New Year's, I do my very best to avoid crowded areas such as the mall, outlet shops, etc.. The cause of this is straightforward: people are dumb.

And vacations tend to stress people out rather than make them all cheery and merry. I don't understand why that is.

In any scenario, I was going to pull into a place in the grocery shop and a middle-aged girl in a massive pick-up truck slams across two areas -- including the one I intended to pull. She leaves her truck operating and goes inside the store.

I find another parking spot. I am miffed, of course, but there's no reason to make a big deal about it.

The grocery store is packaged. I move about my own shopping. Around Aisle 13, the paper towels aisle, I detect the exact same woman only casually browsing the aisles. I thought, in my head, the sole reason I'd leave a $50,000 truck running, parked across two parking areas, is obviously there's an emergency that I can only fix with two bottles of discount red wine.

Turns out, this is maybe a normal thing?

As I get ready to pass her, then I asked her when she drove a truck matching the description of this truck I clearly watched her depart. She looked at me with bewilderment and said, 'yes?'

I asked her why she thought it needed to park over two whole parking areas and then leave her truck operating.

She looked at me as though she'd never once thought about this earlier.

I didn't say anything mean -- I simply asked her why she thought her behavior was acceptable.

As I am preparing to check out, I get a firm pat on the shoulder. I guess it is someone I know from town who recognized me in the grocery shop. I turn around to face an entire stranger. It is a guy. He seems like he's in his late 20s and I do not know him from Adam.

Feeling a little bit of unnecessary tension in the checkout line, I tried to move it along.

I turned back around and looked at the cashier, who seems a little worried because obviously, the interaction seems a little chilly and less than holiday cheery. I kept the small line of groceries moving, smiled at her and asked how her holiday was moving. She smiled nervously.

"Keep your mouth shut," the guy said, and I could not help but look him dead in the eye at that point. It had been clear his mom is out to dinner, and his son was not far behind. There is no requirement to make this a huge thing in the center of a grocery shop.

Just because I'm a hidden carrier doesn't mean that I won't run into jerks. I will still stand up for what I think is important but it's also important to de-escalate. Nevertheless, there certainly were a few choice items I had in the tip of my tongue that I needed to bite back.

The man did not follow me out -- at least that I saw -- and there was no further interaction. Sure, my blood was a little hot. That's life. But overall, I will chalk it up to coping with jerks is part and parcel of living in society. In hindsight, I should have never said anything in the first place As a concealed carrier, remain calm and move along until there is real trouble.
