Getting mugged at gunpoint
This is scary because I genuinely have no idea how I’d react. Would I be a smartass? Would I crumble to the ground? Would I begin fake crying, like I did to avoid a beatdown in an empty stairwell in middle school? That one probably only works against a middle schooler.
Getting mugged at knifepoint
Guns are glamorized in movies and talked about constantly in the news, but I have little personal experience with them outside of shooting an AR-15 at a target once. Knives though? I see them everyday in my kitchen, and the thought of it being used against me is even more terrifying. Also, I think I’d be super into figuring out what type of knife they're waving in my face. Like, if the criminal thrust a Japanese vegetable knife at me? I’d say something dumb like, “I’m hit! But seriously, that thing chops kale like a beast, right?!”
Getting my ass kicked
If it were socially acceptable to walk around in a suit of armor, I would.
