When people come out of no where and bend down to pat my dog without asking. He nipped a guy two weeks ago who did this. *I* didn't even see the guy, so I jumped when I saw his hand down near my pup. His wife told him it was his fault and he shouldn't have done it.

I always hold my hands at my side and let the dog sniff me first. I let him decide if he wants to be friends.

We teach the kids to ask,"Is your dog friendly?", then, "May I pat your dog?"

DH uses the abbreviated version, "Is your dog friendly?"

My experience working with reptiles, especially the venomous ones, various wild mammals some folks have tried to keep as pets and being in the water with numerous marine species, I have a very healthy respect for both wild and domestic creatures. The term "My Space" needs to be taken literally, as most creatures will bite first and never ask a question later. The stupid find this out pretty fast.

In my younger stupid days, I trespassed into some of those spaces and paid the price. One learned lesson, don't pull nurse sharks by the tail, even small ones. They leave scars that last for years.

People who accost me when entering and/or leaving the market asking for a donation, to sign a petition, or start yakking about a "cause".

Talk to the hand.

You need a sign that says "Trespassers beware, you are not welcome here and I carry a paintball gun". Get a paintball gun and practice with it. Oh and we want your menacing picture here too, you carrying the paintball gun.
