    The man walked up to me brave as can be. He looked me in the eye and he somehow demanded respect. I was taken aback and just the right amount of fearful. The man stood his ground put out his hand and demanded, "give it to me now". I am 220 lbs, 55 years old, six foot, and my nose has been broken 6 times. I can carry 60 lbs and make 12 tough miles a day.

    The question is: Who was this man?
    My 3 year old.
    A hit man
    A gang member
    or a Cop?

      My guess would be a cop.
      ?
      A 3-yr-old is not a man.   But maybe you're like a lot of fathers who call their sons "little man"?...........
      You didn't mention anything about a gun or knife or other weapon,  so I'm thinkin' it wasn't a hit man or gang member, because that's what it would've taken to intimidate you, right?   (Unless it was one of those and that's the reason they "somehow demanded respect"........?)
      So that leaves the cop, whose presence would automatically demand (or command) respect.

        Very cool and astute -- I contemplated "command" and retracted. Perhaps only a child demands things. Truth not a physical weapon. I am fifty five I wonder what would intimidate me?

          Hey, I just wanna know what the cop demanded that you give him?   Your drivers license?  Or did you steal something?

      I would say it is a cop.. a three year old  doesn't know how to demand respect they just want love.
      the copy would demand respect.
      a gang member and or a hit man wouldn't care if you respected them they would just kill you
      so my answer is cop.

        Deborah, perhaps some misconception here. Gangs are built on fear and respect. Of course we hate them but they have that in their core, from Cartels to Triads to LA Cripts. Interesting take on little boys who stand with their hands on hips and purse their lips. Maybe they do not demand.

    It was the great and mighty Kamina, the badass embodiment of masculinity with a burning soul, leader of the Dai-Gurren Brigade, known far and wide as the manliest man to have ever breached the Earth's surface! Who the hell do you think we are?!

    ...So yeah, it was Kamina.

        I could not judge that, perhaps shift/shape changing I think I do not know Kamina, but does Kamina know me.

          I'm sure he does.   His brother is the flyin' spaghetti monster, so tales of your escapades have traveled far and wide.  LOL  wink

    My guess would be an IRS agent auditing you.
