    Bad luck Richard – what a pain in the arse.

    Judging from your twitter feed, you were also robbed at lunch yesterday. £5.94!?!

  2. ooh dear – that is so damn annoying when that happens… ergh

    It was a very nice lunch!

    Yeah, it’s annoying. But we’ve cancelled all cards and cetera, sorted the insurance, and I now have a shiny new iPhone 4S.

    Argh. I’ve misplaced my wallet before and it’s one of my least favourite feelings.

    We have some similar scheme here where homeless people can buy a “Big Issue”-like newspaper for 30 cents, and sell them for a dollar. While I’m behind helping the homeless, I’m not sure schemes that allow for 167% profit on goods are necessarily sending the right message.

    🙁 How did you know it was a Big Issue seller that took it? (I never seem to know who steals my stuff – it’s just suddenly gone)

  6. rpg says:

    Because it came into the pub and was seen.

  7. It might be just a tad fairer, if you are certain it was the Big Issue seller, to say “I will never buy a Big Issue from that Big Issue seller”…

    If I could recognize it again I might say that. As it is, sod the lot of them.

    I got my wallet stolen in Madrid, but would go back to Spain in a heartbeat

    Just sayin’ 😉

    Well, sure. Mine was stolen in London and I still live here.
