Fight or Flight?

Hey there, I’m Pandamonium! :panda_face: :heart:

Just like the name suggests, this thread is all about fight or flight scenarios! Post your best fight or flight scenario, and allow the next person to answer with either— :facepunch: (fight) or :running_man: :dash: / :running_woman: :dash: (flight), and why they chose their response. For example:

~ Person one: You see a semi truck raging towards you while walking across the street! What do you do?

~ Person two: :running_man: :dash: ! I’d flee because I don’t think I have much of a chance fighting a damn semi.

You’re sitting on the couch when you notice a spider crawling up your arm! What do you do?

~ Person three: :facepunch: ! I’d fight it because it’s a freaking spider! Gross!

Hopefully I’ve explained this in a way that makes sense. :crossed_fingers: If you have any questions feel free to ask! Alright, here’s my first fight or flight scenario:

You’re walking on the sidewalk, heading towards the supermarket, when all of a sudden…

A flying squirrel comes barreling towards you! What do you do? Do you fight— :facepunch: , or flight— :running_man: :dash: ?

If someone says they’d fight this poor squirrel, I swear to God lmao.


Umm flight duh! Do I really need to explain?

You’re in your house at midnight, sleeping, but a loud noise wakes you up. It’s a robber and he is holding a gun. Fight or flight?


Psh, that’s easy! :facepunch: ! I’d karate chop that sucker in the throat— not for trying to rob me, but for disturbing me while I’m sleeping.

Haha, totally kidding. He’d shoot my butt so quick lmao. I’d definitely flee! I’m not trying to die.

A random person comes up to you and says that you look like a foot. What do you do?


Is laugh an option? Flight. Like I’d waste my time on some rando dude.

A random person asks you to marry them. Fight or flight? (or marry?)


Hm, I’m gonna be daring and say marry! I mean, why not? Life’s too short to not take risks. Plus, It’s not like I have many others trying to put a ring on it haha.

Seriously though, I’d flee. If you’d sincerely ask a random stranger to marry you, I’d question where your mental state is lmao.

Someone throws a moldy potato at you while you’re enjoying a meal with your friend. What do you do?

A female teacher comes up to you and starts pulling down you skirt. Fight or Flight?

This happened to me and I just stared at her and then she was like “your skirt ws uneven " and I was thinking " why didn’t you just tell me? I can adjust my own skirt, there’s no need to touch me” and I’ve never had this teacher in my life

Flight. If I were to hit the teacher, I’d get punished, so I’ll push her hands off and run and try my best to avoid that teacher.
