    This was posted in another forum I belong to, and I don't know if it is true, but it is a funny scenario even if it isn't


    To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.

    Date: 2009-05-27, 1:43 a.m. E.S.T.

    I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.

    First, I'd like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn't expect you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket. The evening was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason. My girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head ... isn't it?!

    I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again].

    After I called your mother or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you'd done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, -- on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 150 gallons and was extremely grateful!

    I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]

    I then threw your wallet into the big pink "pimp mobile" that was parked at the curb ... after I broke the windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver's side of the car.

    Later, I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell phone. Ma Bell just now shut down the line, although I only used the phone for a little over a day now, so what 's going on with that? Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA's office and one to the FBI, while mentioning President Obama as my possible target.

    The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).

    In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you .... but I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path you've chosen to pursue in life. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky.Have a good day!

    Thoughtfully yours,

    Alex

    I believe this to be fake, due to it always showing up, slightly different each time.

    Oh well. Good story anyway.

    Ha!

    Sounds like a What Would Jesus "2A" Christ kind of story that someone would pass around in email or on forums.....

    Kind of funny though.

    This has already been posted to OCDO in the past at least once. COnsensus was that it was amusing but almost certainly fake.

    Even if you see it on craigslist with your own eyes, chances are somebody just copied and pasted the text of it from a forum like this one.

    Funny stuff.

    While I wouldn't do any of thestuff like steal his clothes or bash a car but I would be reallytempted to run up his phone bill.

    Then again,maybe not... I actually had that opportunity and didn't do it. I DID throwthe phone away. It was a guy andhis friendwho said they didn't have a phone when he crashed into my son. When the cops showed up they were hauled away and when I went to pick up my son's car with a trailer we saw his phone sitting on his dash. Lying bastard! So I made it a truthful statement that he didn't have a phone. He was a drunk alien in a car that did not belong to him. He said he only spoke Spanish and tried to play the "No Habla Inglish" game. My son speaks it just fine though. ahahaha! His face dropped whenmy sonasked him the questions again in Spanish. Wish I was there for that moment! They didn't knowhe was in hisown neighborhood.

    Gotta love the "best of". I think I read from now until 2001/2000.


    Been harassed by the police? Yelled at by the anti-gun neighbors? Mother doesn't approve?

    Totally fake. Why? Dude robbing you at knife point doesn't have credit cards.

    Here's a robbery for the new economy: Idiot robs man walking down the street only to find out the wallet he stole had no cash or change in it, a bus pass that just expired, and credit cards that have already been closed by the creditors. The debit card doesn't work because the victim's bank account was already overdrawn with his rent check he paid late. Then when the attacker tries to use the victim's stolen cell phone, he gets a message that the Cricket customer has not paid his phone bill and access has been suspended. He also finds a car key to a vehicle that has already been repossessed.

    "Robbery for the new century" - too funny!

    A friend once remarked that if anyone wanted to steal his credit cards, he'd gladly give them away: "Why not? I can cancel them in minutes, no liability, and yet they remain the fastest way to catch the guy."

    It won't be long before every credit card has (or can have) an RFID tag that'll allow law enforcement to track the perp like lojack using cellular technology.

    Thanks for reminding me to take my "Faraday cage wallet" project more seriously.

    This past Sunday my pastor said (and I'm sure he was joking) that when his wallet was stolen he didn't bother to cancel his cards because the thief was spending less than his wife does.

    :what:

    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    I like that device, hope they go into production and become available here in the US.

    Since9, don't forget they will be able to use it to track you as well. Don't know about you but the last thing I want is for the government to track everywhere I go in the name of my "safety". Not that you have said you are for it, just thought I could post how I feel about rfid tags.

    Back to the original post, I have seen it floating around the internet for a few years and love it, its more than likely fake but its still a great read.

    They are, or you could just make one yourself. The tags are kinda fragile.
