Today, I moved to a big city, alone, from a small town. After convincing myself it wasn't that scary, I hailed my first cab. The driver spent the 30 minute ride from the airport telling me about how "sometimes, you just gotta shoot a guy" because if they steal your shoes, they deserve it. FML

Congrats, people are crazy.

Well in Texas they do have fairly liberal gun laws. Nothing wrong with it though, I like Texas; if you're friendly so are they. Just don't be a criminal and you're good. But another note, who would steal someone's used shoes? That'd be pretty gross. I assume they weren't brand new of course.

Op should be fine as long as they don't steal anyone's shoes.

I'm probably wrong, but there is a possibility the cabbie could tell OP was from out of town and nervous and decided to mess with them. If that's the case it's funny as hell. But he's probably just crazy.

Should have offered the guy some help. Get really enthusiastic, even suggest some torture before you finally shoot them. Mention things like the pear of anguish, jumper cables to the nuts, and even cheese grater underpants.

you steal a man's life before you steal his shoes.

Nope, Stanley Yelnats stole those shoes, even if they did fall from the sky into his hands. It's all the fault of his no good, dirty-rotten pig-stealing great-great-grandfather.

I love Texas.

Rule one of living in Texas. Don't be a prick. That's all. Easy.

Meh. I don't believe in possibly taking a life over a piece of property.

My car, maybe. Shoes, probably not.

Go to an inner city school for a little and you'll quickly see that people do in fact steal shoes.

Gotta love Texas

But.... If people steal your shoes, they DO deserve it.

Just don't steal the mans shoes and you'll be fine

I'd rather hear that than the insane yelling I've heard in subways in New York.

Well clearly the city needs a few more "good soles" You may be the hero they need

The stars at night are big and bright...

Deep in the heart of Texas.

The prairie sky is high and wide.

Deep in the heart of Texas!!

Before you judge the guy, put yourself in his shoes..

I see what you did there.

Dont... he just said he would shoot you..
