We all dine out. It could be a five star restaurant or a fast food joint. Sometimes we get to pick our seating area, other times we cannot. Whenever given the opportunity to choose where to sit in a restaurant, I suggest you use the following two tips when taking your decision.
1. Being that if some sort of crime is going to be committed, it is probably going to be somewhere near the entrance and will probably center around where they keep the money. It is my suggestion to sit in such a way as to have a good view of the front entrance and away from where most monetary transactions take place.
2. Another point to consider is a secondary exit from the building, such as a back door or side door. If things break bad, you have an avenue of getting away from the danger. If there are no alternate exits available, look for a large window to smash out. I know that sounds extreme, but it's better to have a plan and not need one, than to need a plan and not have one.
There are numerous other options to consider, but these will be fun to play with for now. Stay safe.
