Glad you're here to tell us about it. Scary shit.

jesus joff. glad you're still with us. other people will say you're an idiot, and maybe you are, but it says something about you that you chased the guy down. without people to resist, the animals win.

[Like a moron] I chase him down, tackle him, and start fighting (honestly, I only wanted to stop him but the guy starts swinging). Get my ass kicked (not badly but I was definitely losing). We stand up and before I know it he pulls out a gun. Cant tell if it was a toy or it jammed but he pulls the trigger several times and I only hear clicking. Anyway at the point I tell him something along the lines of, "ok man, you win" and he splits. I cant tell if the girl got her bag back but I don't remember him having it. Nonetheless the block is deserted and my uber pulls up. Never been so glad to enter a limo.

Anyway, no longer shaken up but the idea that it wasn't a toy but possibly a real gun that jammed just crossed my mind and has me slightly freaked out again. Dunno if I should feel stupid or not for trying to stop a purse thief.

Funny too that this happened in one of the nicer parts of town (Dupont) but I guess that's where to go to steal purses.

Have you got some flashback of that particular instant since the incident?

You're a good candidate for PTS.

Glad you're ok. The girl didn't hang around to thank you or anything? Fuck that.

Seriously, that takes balls and character. Glad you're ok

might want to get to a emergency room and have a look over. you never know what kind of injuries you've sustained, because once the adrenaline kicks in you might not feel it. simple things like runny noses after a fall could actually be cerebrospinal fluid leaks because of a skull fracture. minor aches and pains might actually be broken bones/torn muscles or ligaments, and confusion and headaches could be a concussion or serious brain injury.

Water bars were briefly a thing in the late 80s.
