World's most stupid? Hardly. It would appear he hasn't been caught yet. That already puts him above 99% of all thieves.

After checking out her tumblr account and seeing pictures of this guy I'm comforted by the knowledge that being a douchebag is something that transcends race, culture and national boundaries.

dude steals clothes from women, he hasn't much to choose from.

Her humorous account of events starts from the day of the robbery, when she was "hopelessly drunk and naked in the sea" with her friends while on holiday in Ibiza.


Pictures!

Why not just link to the actual blog with the story/pictures?

I was amused by the link to the "Ibiza firemen free tourist trapped in sex toy" story. Ouch.

I like that he hit on her friends on Skype.  Hitting on strangers half-a-world away from you using their friend's stolen smart phone shows a certain optimism, a certain "can do" spirit that will really take him far in this world.
 
2013-08-05 11:42:43 AM
I hope allah punishes him greatly. Him and his gay lovers.

Yeah, you'd think he was from New Jersey or something.
 
2013-08-05 11:45:15 AM
he seems pretty restrained.  She says that he has been hitting on her friends on FB, so he has been up in her facebook and likely knows that she is getting the pics.  If that were me, that could become a hobby.

Germans *do* have a sense of humor! And we're usually regarded as staid and humorless...
 
2013-08-05 12:05:35 PM
Given that there are four months between the theft and the first fotos appearing, I wouldn't be surprised if Hafid is just some poor schmuck who bought a used smartphone on ebay.

Given the way the girl describes how the theft happened and the reactions to it (i.e. that sneaking up to the belongings of late-night drunks on the beach is basically a local business), it doesn't sound like it was just some dude from Dubai on vacation hanging out on the beach and who was like "hey, free stuff!" instead of "hey, drunk and naked girls!"
It's way more likely that he's a guy who bought part of the loot and not that the thief decided to use that particular phone for himself among all the phones, passports, clothes and whatnot that he took.

After working with many Germans over the past few years I've come to the conclusion that many Germans just don't learn english all that well and this makes their sense of humor hard to see from an english speakers perspective.  I'm sure the reverse is also true.
 
2013-08-05 12:12:12 PM
well ... this is too stupid to comment on ...
 
2013-08-05 12:19:48 PM
That was pretty funny... Someone else out there could have done better with the quips, but the thing as a whole is pretty good. Let's hope this goes truly viral, just so this guy can see the whole planet laughing at him for being such a schmuck before he gets smart and ditches the phone.

Not a woman in any of the images. What a sad life.

That's the same thing I thought.
 
2013-08-05 12:49:02 PM
What's so stupid about the thief? He has an entire Arabic culture and a majority of the internet that will defend his right to steal whatever he wants from any non-member of a "victim culture" he wants. Hell, even Gawker is calling the victim a racist for her sense of humor. If Hamid ever realizes what she's up to, the odds are pretty good he'll be able to have her extradited to the UAE to stand trial for humiliating him.

I see a related article where rapes of UK citizens are up in the Spanish islands, "with alcohol playing a major factor."  Not that it's right, but Mr. klifty-fingers could've done more than just stolen stuff.

What a moron!  I'm just going to play Sherlock Holmes here and throw this in.  While this guy may live in Dubai, I think he is more likely of Moroccan origin. Here's why:

1] 'Hafid' is not a very common name in the Arabian Gulf.
2] Petty theft throughout Spain is mostly associated with North African immigrants (a nasty stereotype but one with some truth to it).
3] The physiological traits of the guys pictured is a lot closer to North African (I'm going out on a limb on this one but I can generally tell the differences between North African, Shami, i.e. Syria, Lebanon and Jordan and Khaleeji, i.e. Gulf Arabs).
4] If he was really from the U.A.E. he wouldn't be living in an apartment generally constructed for migrant workers there. Although not all people from the U.A.E are rich, U.A.E citizens have furnished housing with central AC and both washer and dryer units. In the photos, you'll find individual AC units and cloth lines running inside along with little to no beds apart from the mattresses on the floor that hint multiple people live in that small place.

5] The picture below hints at the star on the Moroccan flag:

I doubt this lady will get her phone back but at least she's having fun with it. I see a prayer mat in one of the pictures, which reaffirms my conviction not to judge a religion based on its hypocritical followers, but on its actual values and principles. I hope they remember religion isn't just about kneeling and bowing down when their actions go against the simple precepts of all religions, including "thou shalt not steal".

bdub77: World's most stupid? Hardly. It would appear he hasn't been caught yet. That already puts him above 99% of all thieves.


He lives in Dubai and his victim is female, so it's not like the police there would ever prosecute him under any circumstances.  And she admits she was naked at the time the phone was stolen, so if hypothetically she did ever go to Dubai to testify against him they'd probably chop her hands off.

Doesn't matter if she denies being naked, if the guy mentions it, they'll forget about the stolen phone and arrest her instead.  She'd be lucky if they don't give her an Iranian style execution, (rape first to ensure she's not allowed into heaven).
