That's adorable and well-done. Looks like Chimpo's style.

Not sure how to say it without it either sounding like a big deal or like I'm making it up or something, so I guess I'll just come straight out with it.

I was just robbed and jumped a couple hours ago, in my own neighborhood, while waiting for the bus to work. Four young, black males surrounded me at the bus shelter, two of them sitting next to me, two of them standing to the other side of me, and one of the two who sat asked me for money. I kind of rudely answered back, "I don't have any money," without looking up to say it to him. He told me to look at him, lifted his shirt and showed me a gun. Then he said, "Now do you have any money?"

I wasn't exactly sure how to respond to that, because I wasn't sure what I just saw. Took a few seconds to compute, and before then, I kind of defiantly told him, "I just said I don't have any money." Soon as I realized what it was I just saw, I told him I did have a card and that he could have it. I gave him the pin number and he told me to sit back down as he and the two who were standing walked off with my card around the corner. They left one guy behind at the bus stop. I wasn't exactly sure what to feel and just asked him, "Why are you guys doing this?" He told me he didn't know and the moment I turned to look and see if the other three had disappeared from view, I was punched in the back of the head repeatedly.

It's a dark area that the bus shelter is in and I had no idea what was gonna happen to me. I also had this computer in the backpack I had on my back and I didn't want to lose it, so I tried crawling out off the sidewalk into traffic so someone would see me and maybe stop and help. He kept hitting me and dragging me back. I pulled away and screamed enough that once the bus pulled up, he ended up letting go and running away. The bus was naturally late today, and if it had been on time, I wouldn't have had that encounter. But it also saved me, so I'm not sure how to feel about that.

Only reason I'm at work tonight is because the bus was out of service past the park and ride and the police were going to be waiting to take my report downtown at the end of the route. Since I work downtown and couldn't get back home, here I am. My head and neck are killing me and I'm broke, but I'm fine past that.

Holy fucking shit.

From personal experience I get how you feel. That kinda shit is terrifiying to be in. I'm glad to see you fought back, it's easy to freeze up in that kinda situation. I personal got my ass royally kicked, but eh.

This isn't gonna come out right but: I'm glad you're just alittle hurt instead of dead.

Yikes... Hope you've already contacted the bank about the card being stolen, so they can freeze any further uses of the card. Might be a bit late now since they've probably gotten as much as they can out of it, but it does stop that card from getting any further abuse by those bastards.

Hope you recover soon, both physically and financially.

They've already gotten most of what was on the card. I'm not worried about the money. Double edged sword: I'm broke, but the police are tracking exactly where the purchases are being made already. I was called earlier and told they spent $26-something at the Shell right next to where it happened. So. Provided there's any good security camera footage, I'll have someone to identify.

It was smart giving up the card, nearly every credit card company in existence will chalk up the charges they make to identity theft, freeze the card, and knock most of the losses off the books. Also, most ATMs are fitted with security cameras to track shit like this from being exploited (that way they can't just walk up to an ATM and withdraw almost all of your money).

That being said, it's shitty this happened to you and i wish all the best.

Just wanted to emphasize this. My cousin had his credit card stolen while at a football game, and they caught the guy hours later at an ATM thanks to security cameras. Knocked off all the losses and such thanks to that.
