What would you do if you saw someone trying to steal your bike? Would you shout at them? Call the police? Talk to them politely? Throw a brick or twelve in their general direction?
Well, cyclist Travis Ames was put in exactly that position in Austin, Texas recently when he left a “Whataburger” to find someone trying to climb on his wheels.
It would seem that under the circumstances, Travis went through a series of different emotions:
- First attacking the thief
- Secondly wrestling with the thief
- Thirdly trying to reason with the thief
- …and fourthly, fist bumping the thief
