what-i-thought-about-during-the-christmas-church-service.png

btleslie brought up a great discussion topic with this Funny Picture.

I actually do think like this when in Church.

I always try to sit in a corner of a restaurant that has the register near the door. At my local breakfast restaurant I sit at the counter, facing the register.

What thoughts do you consider when in a sit down environment?

Back to the wall, nearby concealment, interference with draw/presentation, ability to cover family.

When possible sit facing the door. If multiple doors then facing the main one. Always scanning the room. I am working on getting my family more in this mode, so we can have a 360 alertness.

We have a ministry specifically for those types of events.

Along with what has been mentioned above I also like to be near an emergency exit door. While I have never asked to be seated at a different table in a restaurant, I will make sure I am in the best chair for where I am seated.

Facing the door, back to a wall, as far away from the cash register as possible, my strong side on the outside if in a booth. A variation of the aforementioned in other venues than a restaurant.

Sitting where I can observe any and all people approaching the area and my back to a secure area. I am still working on instilling these actions in my wife which sometimes iritates her when I force a switch in our seating postions. I also scan the parking lots before we leave and continue to scan the entire area until we are safely in the vehicle and the first thing I do is lock the doors, then I can worry about starting the engine and fastening the seat belts. I also never use the keyfob to unlock the doors until I get to the point where I can see the entire area surrounding the vehicle and allowing us just enough time to get to the vehicle as they unlock so that I can scan the lighted interior as I approach it. I also never stop for a "unmarked police vehicle" until I get to a well lighted area with other people around.

Lil Beaver, Very good thoughts.

After intering a bank just as the robber was leaving, I now look at all the faces of the people in an astablishment as I enter.

I look into places like 7-11's and Denny's before I enter. I can always turn around.

I don't go to places like Denny's or 7-11's.
