Chicago is the city where I grew up. Although I am of Chinese ancestry, I was born and raised here. It is special to me but I would always advise people to take extra care when walking alone in the streets.
This town can be dangerous. I have lived in Chicago my entire life so I should know. I have been working as a merchandiser for a clothing company for three years now.
Until I got to college, I was not allowed me to go around by means of public transport. Once I began working, I decided to move out and learn how to be independent. I rented an apartment not far from my workplace.
Driving my own vehicle reduces the risk of getting mugged. However, it is no guarantee. For added security, I carry a pepper spray defense key chain with me.
I was loading grocery bags into the auto once. Suddenly, two men tried attacking me. I right away took out my pepper spray defense key chain and sprayed it on them before they could pull off anything mean. It was attached conveniently to my keys.
I searched the web high and low before I found the perfect pepper spray defense key chain for my needs. I zeroed in on different Wildfire 18% Pepper Spray products because each is measured at 3 million Scoville heat units that will stop any mugger from attacking.
Honestly speaking, I am not a very organized person. I always misplace things. When it came to choosing between the 1.5 oz Wildfire 18% Pepper Spray and the 1/2 oz Wildfire 18% Pepper Spray, I got the former which would be harder for me to miss.
As a pepper spray defense key chain, the 1.5 oz model is perfect for me since I just have to attach it to my bag or car keys. The importance of keeping such a gadget was something that I never realized until that day that I got mugged myself.
