Busy 2 days. Gave blood yesterday. No Looks, nods, questions. Keisha took me to room for vitals (she closed door), As I was leaving, exit scheduling clerk asked if I was a cop. When I said 'No', she was surprised when I explained OC was legal in DE.
Starbucks, 141 E. Main, Newark today.
1) Gentleman asked if I was a cop, or had my license. I answered I was not a cop, had a CDW license, but it was not required for OC in DE. He said he was from NJ, and no such freedoms were allowed in his state. I expressed my condolences, and bid him 'Have a nice day'.
2) 10 minutes later one of the baristas came over, and told me a 40-ish female customer gave her a raft of s**t about me being in there. Since I've come to know her, and all the staff, I asked her , in the future, to a) send the person to me to discuss their concerns, or b)tell disgruntled person to call NPD to report MWAG, but that the staff at Starbuck's is happy I'm in the store. As an aside, company CEO, Howard Schultz had published a full-page ad in NY Times 9-18-13 'requesting' customers not bring guns into stores, but that company would follow state laws, and also would serve ALL customers with a smile. I told barista (Debbie) that staff shouldn't be harangued because a customer has a different opinion over Civil Rights than I have.
3) 1/2 -hour later, gentleman with his 3-year old daughter was asking about OC and CCDW licensing process in DE. I referred him to Deloc website, after giving an overview answer to both OC and CC.
So, all-in-all, an interesting day !
