Ask anyone who has ever been on the wrong side of a mugging how they responded. Chances are they did the smart thing and gave the mugger everything they had. But in this video Rob Pincus demonstrates a trick that is even smarter for this situation. He recommends having a separate wad of money in one of your pockets that you can hand over to the mugger. It can be a small amount to show the mugger you’re not worth being robbed, or it could be balled up and thrown on the ground to serve as a distraction so you can pull out your defensive handgun and create some distance between you and your attacker.
