I voted for "beat him to a pulp" but I would actually just place two very well aimed shots from my .45 1911 into his chest. Of course I'd have my unregistered throw-away gun on stand by just in case he didn't already have a one.

Hmmm, I'm from New Orleans. How many cops would it take to push him down a flight of stairs? Answer: "Man, he tripped and fell!"

Why the hate? Its not that I love my car that much - its just a car. However, I've had to pay to have the doors and fender repainted on my truck when some kids decided to key both sides of it for no apparent reason. It wasn't cheap at the time, plus cost me when I sold it too (since the dealer could tell it had been repainted). How much would hurt someone that stole a couple thousand dollars from you? Kill, no, but a broken limb sounds fair.

Restrain him firmly (Oh did I break that?) until the police arrive. Get him in court and get restitution for the damage. Voted for Beat him to a pulp. I once left a friend to walk after he slammed my doors. He understood and is still a friend.

I've just changed my wiper blades and now my reverse lights don't work. Should I change my fuel pump relay?
