    Gun ad on Craig's List

    I was wondering if anyone here knew of an ad allegedly posted on Craigs's List that was making the rounds on the internet last year. Essentially a bad guy had attempted to hold up a guy in FL, but the potential victim was armed with a Kimber 1911 and fended off the attack and then turned the tables on the attacker. The ad was done in quite a comedic style. I wish I had kept it when it was forwarded to me via e-mail. If anyone has a copy of this or a link to where I could find it, that would be great. Thanks.

    To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.
    Date: 05-27-09, 1:43 A M 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 and me, 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 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,
    Alex

    Oh, I just love that! I have read it before, but it still makes me laugh!

    I would be willing to bet a lot of money that it is an urban legend. Regardless, it is really funny to read!

    Google "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."

    It appears in a number of places. I received it once via email about a year ago.

    While it is funny, it has been around for some time, the city changes but that's all. If it is true the person who wrote it is an idiot, since he admitted to numerous felonies: ie. credit card fraud, threatening phone calls, vandalism, among others.
