I was almost murdered by someone with a machete AMA
I live next to a rough neighborhood, and didn't realize how bad it was. I've lived in some bad places and this seemed no different. I decided that since the roads went in a big circle, that would be a good place to walk my dog. (He was a Shar-pei and big at that so I thought I would not catch any shit.) Well, my mistake for being nice to a guy that said hey to me one day, and we chatted, and got to know each other, he seemed nice. I would talk with him about 10-15 mins a day, and go on my way. Well one day he asks if I want to drink a few beers with him, and I told him to let me take my dog home, and I would come back. After doing so, we start getting a little drunk and playing a game of cards on his front stoop. He loses the game and as I didn't know how angry a drunk he got, flipped the table and started cursing me out. Push comes to shove, as I am not going to let anyone talk to me and push me like he was doing. So I hit him, and I guess the alcohol made him easily "knockout-able" and he fell out. As I was walking away, he had come to, went into his house, and chased me down, As it was dark, I could only hear him, not see him, but when I turned, he chopped at my neck with a machete. The next thing I know, I wake up a week later in ICU. Here is a potato pic of my neck. The scar goes all the way around to the back of my neck.
EDIT: I fell a few times walking to the neighbors house, I hit my head a few times, so much so I was told they induced a coma. I don't know why they put me in it, but I was conscious and awake the whole time up until the hospital. I did not get knocked out from falling.
TL;DR: An angry drunk got mad at me and hit me with a machete in the neck.
I know this is not that interesting, but I am bored. So AMA.
EDIT: Thank you for the gold.
