VDJ I had a similar situation. When I was fresh out of high school, I worked at a popular sandwich shop (I won't give the name but it's the same as a form of public transportation). After spending a week closing the shop by myself, I told the manager that I wasn't comfortable closing alone. I suggested that he come up and just sit in the office while I close up. I didn't want his help, just to be another person there. He asked what I was afraid of.
Me:"UH Being robbed."
Him:"Why?"
Me:"Because I don't want to be robbed."
Him:"But aren't you a black belt?"
Me"Yeah but that doesn't mean that I WANT to be robbed."
Him:"Yeah but you don't have anything to worry about."
Me:"How do you figure?"
Him:"Because you could just kick the guy's ass."
Me:"Look Bucko, if you think for one second that I'm going to risk getting hurt for THIS, HA! You have some serious thinking to do."
I never went back to work for him. He called me after missing work for 3 days and asked why I never came in. "Sorry but I can't work for someone who can't look out for their employee's safety."

What did I do?

(child B howling in pain because child A stomped his foot-big toe deliberately as hard as I have ever seen it done turning the nail bed absolutely black instantly solely because that thought (STOMP) happened to come through his (child A's) tiny little brain)

A three minute talk and demonstrations (done four times very slowly & very carefully.) Told to "practice it now"
a child sitting in the front line of the class suddenly asks

"WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO NOW?"

Ah yes, I get that in English classes too. It usually follows 5 minutes after my stupid question, "Do you know what you are supposed to be doing?"

After another BB and I sparred at a demo, we were asked "Why did you guys move around so much?" We simultaneously answered "Because we don't want to be hit". This guy had watched too many KungFu Theatre movies where the antagonists stand rooted in place and take turns punching and blocking. He hadn't seen too much 'angling' in those films.

During a sparring match;

Uke moves in and tries to roundhouse kick me. After a few attemps he stops and looks at me.

Uke: Why are you moving away from me?!

Taison: . . . .
(Thinks to himself) Cuz I don't want to get hit?

-Taison out
