After living in NY all my life, i've never been pickpocketed, mugged, something stolen from me, etc.

On the subway on friday during rush hour, we were all crammed in and couldn't move. I kept feeling something on my bag (it's basically a backpack, but the ones that only have one strap that goes across your chest) but when i kept looking around, noone looked suspsicous or whatever. Anyway, my umbrella was strapped to it, tightly. When i got off the subway, it was gone. I said well it's about time... then i said bastards! :( lol. Thankfully, it was only a pos umbrella

That's my story. Gotta love nyc :D

In Romania, they don't bother picking your pockets anymore. They just have very sharp knives and they slash the pockets of your jacket and catch whatever falls out.

:lol: that sucks Chris.. I havent had anything stolen from me in 4 months in the city. The last thing that was stolen from me was the bottom portion of my steering wheel club. I left my windows down while I ran upstairs in my apartment and came back down and I didnt notice until later on that day, that it was gone....

From what i hear, people do that here too. They'll slash the bottom of the bag and grab whatever.

Forecaster's swore up and down that it was supposed to rain like nothing else, but Friday was beautiful..... But Saturday.... I think all Fridays rain waited for Saturday and poured like hell....

Always carry my suit wallet (longer then wide - unlike normal wallets) in my front pocket and never carry more then $20.00 cash. Plastic can be replaced, cash cannot.

Yeah, i was mostly pissed because i knew if it started raining, i would have to pay like $15 for an umbrella. Thankfully it didn't :D

And i always carry my wallet in my front pocket. I would be so paranoid someone would grab it from my rear pocket.
