Thank you to the considerate pick pockets

When anyone 'makes contact' with you, hold on to your wallet and phone.

That's why you have two hands.

Fair play they returned the wallet, how did they know where you live ?

With rare exception everything I wear here has a zippered pocket where the wallet lives.....

It's not like the Philippines where you basically have to keep your hands in your pockets, be watchful, & wear no jewelry.....

Thanks for the reminder that they are out there.....It's easy here to let the guard down....

I knew God had a reason for that but I wasn't sure just what it was.   😃

Not on mine, but my wife has written on a slip of paper our address and stuffed it in my wallet/ purse/ handbag just in case I get falling down drunk and can't find my way home.

Caught between a couple of willing, promising, smiling faces & 4 perky boobs jostling about - the hands might have other ideas....

My license has my address printed on the back in English and Thai, albeit in very small writing.

Sparing the details. I was pick-pocketed in Indonesia  years back by a 3-man team: the bump, the pick, and the hand-off.

 

As for zippered pockets showing a bulge, there are razor-blade artists out there who could slice the bottom of the pocket, take the contents, and flee before you would ever notice what happened.

Are you sure it was them?

 

Didn't you just dropped the wallet somewhere. Somebody found it and bring it back? While pocketing the money for the service/guard pocketing the money? I don't think pick pocketers would walk around and be returning wallets to every victim.

 

Also, were it girls? I would expect something like this from ladyboys, not girls.
