    Something happened to me that has never happened in 28 years in this business. I caught a thief red-handed as he was trying to steal some of my equipment off of my truck. I have always prayed that I would catch one of the POS and I did! I was at a medical office that we do in Warren and a nurse alerted me that the guy had just taken a trimmer off of the back of my truck.
    Bad move on this guy's part - as I out weighed the guy by about 80lbs! Not being a big fan of violence and trying to rid myself of much the negative energy that such behavior brings (see Zen and Karma), I decided that I would try to keep from kicking the crap out of the guy and let the law handle the situation. Unfortunately for him, I guess I didn't try hard enough (LOL) and I ended up beating the living daylights out of this ****-stain.
    The best part is that as I was walking away from this guy as lay on the parking lot pavement with a broken nose, undoubtedly a few broken ribs and a whole lot of cuts and bruises, I decided to add insult to injury to this poor lad's day. Yes - I went back and made him empty his pockets, give me his shoes as well as his shorts and shirt. As he stood there in in his boxers and socks, I just laughed. I just robbed the motherf*cker of $28 and some change, his keys and his wallet. I kept the money and threw the other stuff in a dumpster about a mile down the road. This all happened at 13 and Hoover.

    Ha ha

    As all this was happening, I was worried about the nurse - who was still watching. At one point she asked if I wanted her to call the cops. When I told her that I had it handled, she told the guy that she thought I should have broken his arms too - because it was thieves like him that stole from hardworking people like herself. I'm gonna give her a gift card next week for helping me catch this guy.

    HAHAHA!! Amazing. Got me laughing. I like how you tried to be civil, but it didn't quite work. Nice work Jason.

    I think it would be fun for that to happen to us, as long as my partner Sean is around. He's down-right scary when in comes to strength and speed. He lifts 300lb boulders like it's noting, and can throw 80lb bags of salt about 20 feet...

    Glad you caught him.

    I tried to be the better man - but we just had $1000 worth of blowers stolen off another truck 3 weeks ago. So, I guess this guy caught me in a bad mood. LOL.

    as fulfilling as that would be i dont think i could bring myself to do it.... again..... its amazing how the court system can work sometimes. you sound like you need to sit in lock-up for a week and go to anger management classes, thats what they said to me anyways.

    just calm down next time and call the cops, i would hate to see you get into a all out fight and you end up whackin the guy in the beaner with a shovel and hes no more.
