    This Add Was Posted in the Personals of The New York Times

    To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last. Date: 05-27-09, 1:43 AM EST.

    I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on my girlfriend, threatening our lives and me.

    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 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 wasn't it?

    I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd come from 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 four other people's 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,

    I dont think this guy likes to be robbed...but anyway its great that he stuck up for this gf etc but bloody hell he practically destroyed the robber. Got this from an email at work, good chuckle!

    I dont really think its a good way of being protected to carry a .45 cal pistol in ur pants or holster and prepared to mug..the mugger

    It's America. And the story is probably fake too.

    Looks like BS. And why smash up someone elses car, cause a panic with the authorities and generally annoy other people just because you got mugged. What a jerk.

    Do they not have PIN on their cards over there? How would he pay for all the petrol without one?

    was vaguely amusing upto the point he starts using the guys cards, keying cars etc then he's no better than the mugger really. If he'd just pulled the gun on him and made him run away bare foot, that would've been kinda fun.

    Snopes.com has this as 'undetermined' but it reads like a made-up story, for sure.

    Would be easy to confirm however what starts out feasible rapidly descends to beyond BS.

    If for some reason it was proven true then im quite sure the mugger/gang would kill this guy for such..

    conclusion - Americans are mostly idiots.

    Should have cut it at the:

    "I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd come from bare footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me."

    Part, the rest is just too silly.

    Really? It sounded like a really really bad short story written by a teenager.
