My bag got picked today. The thief unzipped the bag, took my purse and the pouch containing my mobile phone, house keys and flashdrive, without my even being aware of it.
Onlookers managed to wrest the purse away from him, but the rest of the stuff is lost forever. It would be expensive to replace all the stuff, but would have been much worse if it had been my credit cards that were stolen.
Strangely, it is not anger I feel against the thief. It is sheer gratitude towards the people who got the rest of it back for me.
