    So I have been working late these last few days and found myself at WH for some very late dinner. I had a large Myerco tanto style folder in my pocket, via the clip, and the waitress came up to me and said no weapons were allowed in the facility.

    I had on black pants and the knife blade is anodized black with black scales to boot, so she had good eyes. She said that if I tuck the knife in my pocket there should not be a problem, I complied since I was tired and hungry. I had to chuckle to myself, though, as I picked up the serrated steak knife to rend the meat and then eat my ribeye.:rolleyes:

    At WH, while they're telling you to nix your weapon, at least they top off your coffee and call you "Hon."

    Now I'm hungry for some scatter, smothered, covered and chunked. I really like their hash browns, and pecan waffles.

    And that was most likely a flirt. You dog.

    I've gotta say, given that all she asked was for it to be concealed, I think I'm with the majority opinion here.

    Odd that I roll through the one by our shop fairly often with open carry 1911 or King Cobra. Must not be corporate policy.

    How did you miss the opportunity to say " I AM a weapon?"

    I guess it isnt corporate policy either...no flirting, since she looked deadly serious when she spoke to me...she must have wanted a good tip on a slow night.

    Looking over the IN knife laws I don't see any definition of a standard folder as a weapon. If there's a Waffle House company policy then it wouldn't apply since IN doesn't define your knife as a weapon (Switchblades as weapons, yes. Standard folders, no.)

    None the less, while wrong, she didn't make an issue of it and provided a convenient solution that didn't inconvenience you.

    Suppose you had come in with a three foot long stick in the guise of a walking cane?
    No one would notice. This is why I am such a big walking stick advocate. You can have it almost anywhere.
