Just when I was starting to think the crime rate here was comparatively low. I had just got out of a customer’s office and was looking for a cab when these two guys on a motorcycle came out of nowhere and made a grab for the small bag I was carrying.
Didn’t lose much except for my beloved IXY digicam, my cheap mobile and the trusty Leatherman, but it was still shocking. I guess they thought it was full of wads of foreign currency, judging from my appearance (yes I was wearing a tie).
Now they tell me that those kinds of bags are usually carried by unsuspecting old cashiers and such and are vulnerable to this sort of attack. So what was I supposed to do? Stuff everything in my pockets? Anyhu, lesson learnt. From now on, I’m implanting everything in my skeleton.
