It looked like I was in the clear for a few seconds when he started following me saying "there aren't any cameras here" and demanding money. When he was about 15 feet away from me he pulled out a knife and again demands money.
I WISH I could report that I told him, "Look junior, you don't understand who your dealing with so unless you want to leave here wearing your asshole for a necklace I need to see you running that way like a girl pronto" (pointing with my flattend hand). What I really have to report is that I ran like a girl pronto through the front door of the hotel... with all of my money... and no knife holes. I think even if I'd given him the $1 he asked for at first it wasn't going to end there. Who would have thought this could happen at 10am on a street full of people on a bright sunny day. I was pretty lucky... Las Vegas is an armpit... I'm moving on to Lake Havasu a week from Friday.
