That's what the guy gets for having a manbag.

The best part is the end where that super scary face fills the screen and screams at you. I almost had a heart attack.

The only person who gets in quick, moves with purpose, gets what he wants and leaves.

Atomic Spunk: Is this kind of pickpocketing (or bag-pocketing, I guess) very popular here in the US? Because I haven't heard about it happening much here. I know it's fairly common in Europe, because whenever I travel there I hear countless warnings. I was nearly ripped off twice. In Nice, some guy bumped into me from behind - there were very few others around so he had no reason to be walking so close to me. In Venice, I was swarmed by a bunch of gypsy kids and those bastards didn't even try to hide the fact that they were trying to steal from my pockets. I always keep my passport, cash and credit cards inside a pouch that I hang over my neck and inside my shirt, so they never got anything.

Happened to me all over Europe. Worse as you head East it seemed.

My grandfather, who lived in Hungary for 40 years, said the safest thing to do when mobbed by a bunch of street kids is to actually put your wallet in your hand, raise both hands in the air and start singing something loudly (I suggested Michael Jackson's "Bad" and he just stared at me).

The second people start looking over to see what's going on, the kids scatter. Worked twice for me years ago and I really got into the song.

Doesn't anyone realize how many health killing carbs are being transacted for across that counter of death?

Keigh: slayer199: Keigh: it starts offscreen but it's pretty clear when it happens. and that's why you don't let anyone see where you put your wallet.

Not just that, he put it in his bag, not his back pocket which would have been harder to pic.

he probably should have just kept it on his tray until he sat down. (that's how you keep anyone from seeing where you put it.) All in all a weird scene. why did guy in plaid take so long going back for his wallet, and then watch where he looks, and then he's still next in line.... I think he's the one who's in on it.

The guy in plaid seemed suspicious (seems like he kept looking back a lot), but, that is because he was watching his bag in the booth I think.... the guy who got picked goes and sits at plaid's table, so, I doubt plaid was in on it, unless he was angry at his "friend" for something.

Whenever I take out my wallet in public, I make sure to lick it all over, while growling and staring at everyone nearby. That way everyone around knows it's mine and they better not even think about taking it.

Oddly enough, the mall has asked me not to come back.

That's why I make a point of pulling down my zipper, and putting my wallet inside my underpants.

What, TMI?
