A little over an hour ago, I was finishing up a hike up and down the cable line trail up Tiger Mountain, near work. I had been mostly running down the trail, so I came around the last bend of the trail, and onto the pavement, pretty quickly.
The first thing I saw was a thin, sallow-looking man pulling a woman's purse out of the broken driver's side window of a black Lexus, two cars down from mine. There was glass lying all around the car. He was about 10 feet away from me. He looked startled, to say the least.
What would you do?
- Swear at him. Loudly.
- Whack him with your hiking pole. Hard.
- Chase him down the street.
- Call 911.
The correct answer, of course, is (e) All of the above.
