    blackberry as a selfdefense tool?

    Advertisement



    I had a guy come in my store today with a busted berry. It had a busted screen, but the phone part worked so he could make and receive calls. I noticed that it looked like it had some strands of hair and a small amount of dried blood that looked like someone had tried to wipe it away.I asked the owner what happened and he told me that a few nites ago, he got into a fight at a bar cos some dude was hitting on his lady friend. Evidently he stood up to the guy and got into a shoving match and had to defend himself. I guess the only thing he had was his 8700 cause that's what he used to beat the jerk down with. He said it worked real well too, but if he had it to do over again, he would use something a little less expensive to lay the smackdown. Those were his words, not mine. I was just wandering who would take a BB 8700 to a bar?I guess keep this thread in mind if you ever find yourself in a similar situation.

    Because I take both of my devices with me where ever I go...Here, since hardly anyone has them, if someone starts something with you, you can just inadvertantly flash your BlackBerry and it works better than a badge...

    My BlackBerry goes with me everywhere... I would take it in a bar. However I am happily married with an 18m old daughter. I am the one who shouldn't be in the bar, not my BB.

    I've been in similar situations like the one your customer described. I used both of my devices in that fight, in the same manner...
    They didn't come out any worse for the wear!

    They're called my fists, and that man needs to learn how to use them... Poor berry...
