I'm in a parking lot waiting for my guy to get out of a dollar store. This guy pulls up and stumbles out of his truck heading into the package store.

As I'm waiting some scumbag comes up and tries to grab something out of his bed. I yell at the guy and he takes off. I get out to take a look and it was a BR600. So now the guy is coming out of the packy with beer. I say hey buddy you need to secure your equipment. Before I could finish my sentence his drunk as* says mind your f**king business. So I say ok enjoy your crapsman mower.

Some people have nerve. Maybe it was a good thing if his blower was stolen. I dont know. Hes a drunk ahole to say the least.

I just did what I would want someone to do for me. This guy didnt deserve a explanation.

No matter what his attitude was, you did the right thing. I believe in the man upstairs and he saw your deed also.

So your good deed was telling him his blower almost was stolen instead of kicking the case outta his hand ! I have a child now who is on these roads now... I would have spoke my mind and probably fist fought the dude if he was drunk. It's idiots like that , that need to be sent off into the Atlantic on a blow up raft and a volleyball.

I didnt really think about that till like 5 minutes later. Not sure if he was legally intoxicated but I could tell he was drinking. I was caught up in how he stuff was almost jacked and then his attitude. Looking back thats what I shouldve done.

I am fairly certain that the picture is of the owner of the equipment that almost got stolen ,he appears to be wearing a husquavarna shirt and everything .
