In conversation with the cab driver, the subject turns to crime.
Me: There seems to be a lot less crime in this area lately.
Cabbie: No. I been robbed twice.
Cabbie: Yeah. Two times with knife.
Me: Oh no! What happened?
Cabbie: Nothing. Guys just wanted my money.
Me: That’s terrible! Were you hurt?
Cabbie: No, no.
Me: Did they both get away?
Cabbie: Oh sure! But one of them, he run in front of my car and I hit him. Stupid asshole.
Me: You hit him with the cab?
Cabbie: Yeah. He take my money, I hit him. Broke his leg good.
Me: Whoa! Did you get your money back?
Cabbie: No way! He had a knife.
Me: So you just drove away?
Cabbie: Yeah. He rob me, he get what he deserved.
