It reminds of a time when I was a 19 year old at Lake Tahoe and I watched a guy snag a purse from a lady outside a casino. She screamed and I chased him down for what seemed forever till he dropped the purse and took off into the night. I returned the purse to the lady who promptly grabbed it out of my hands, hit me with it, and never said thank you to the amusement of security guards who hadn't given chase.
It looks like the victim in Skyler's story was a little more grateful. ; )
On another note this has now become a national story thanks to Jerry.
