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.
That sucks! Next time carry something that explodes when you open it…
Is there any rampaging going on around you?
