Subject: BS: A Pox on...
From: Fibula Mattock
Date: 20 Sep 06 - 06:33 PM

...thieves!

(I'm in the mood for thread-starting these days.)

Anyway, a pox on the *&%^$£f^cking c!*ts who stole my wallet this evening when I was enjoying a lovely sociable evening out with an old mate. I travel the f*cking world in some really dodgy places (picking up really dodgy diseases along the way) and wind up getting my purse nicked in bloody London. CURSE YOU!

Rant ends.

Please feel free to add your pox recipients here:

Yeah, I'm sure. Paid for a drink (ha! empty wallet - see the moths fly!) then zipped up the bag. Bag was dangling down the side of the chair, then bag was open on floor with no wallet in it. At least they didn't get any cash, and I cancelled the cards, and yes, I probably should have handcuffed the damn bag to both wrists (kinky yet secure) but I was stuck pretty much in a corner and didn't see the pygmy-sized Artful Dodger sneak in and swipe it.

Doesn't take them long to get yer new plastic out to you, just pray they don't get "lost" in the post.
A Tartan Pox on them too, to be going on with!

Yeah, my Oyster card with 9 sweet quid on it went an'all. B@st@rds.
I still like London though. Oh well, I managed six years in Bristol with only 2 burglaries (in the second one they nicked my flatmates CDs and left mine - what does that tell ya?) while lots of people I knew were mugged, so I suppose I was due a turn.

Well if you will frequent such dives as Wapping, what do you expect?!

If it makes you feel any worse, I've lived here for 16 years and never had any trouble at all.. When I lived in sleepy Dorset I was robbed once, beaten up twice and followed home frequently by some really wierd people!

Mind you, I don't carry a handbag and I keep my phone & travel cards in my trouser pockets.

Hope it all sorts out soon.

May their genitals be licked by GOATS...

(& no I didnt get the quote, or the idea, from ANY KIND of website...*LOL*....I am told it was a 17th Century 'curse', being that goats have, apparently very rough tongues that will slowly strip the skin away...)

Perhaps a modern version of a 'pox on thieves' could be 'may their smack dealer have recently taken delivery of a batch heavily cut with laxatives'.

I been burgled 3 times in 3 1/2 years (the 2nd, & quite possibly 3rd time too, by toerags who I am justified in thinking were heroin users (above & beyond the approved statistics about the number of property thefts that are drug-related)).

I have often fantasized about walling off a part of large cities to be inhabited only by people convicted of thievery. They would be banished there for the term of their sentencing.

What a wonderful time they would have ripping each other off. They eventually might have to work in order to survive.

That's called a jail. Or gaol. Sometimes it's not in a city, but on a moor.

Ha! Portaferry is WORSE, especially for drunken lout related incidents. Although I reckon they find it harder to steal things there as they lack the requisite opposable thumbs*.

(*applies to thugs only, not the nice people of Portaferry, of which, fortunately, there are quite a few)

In Hong Kong I had a dip try to grab my wallet. I was gripping it across the width not finger/thumb across the thickness so it was not going anywhere but it was a professional attempt. They tugged from the other direction so when I looked round I had to do a 270 deg turn and there were the toilets. I would bet it was a woman/girl so that I would follow into the gents if I was quick enough. Money/cards would have been removed and passed to an accomplice with the rest flushed away. As I looked around I saw a coach load of what looked like differently intelligent youngsters and I looked at the teacher who for all the world had observed and knew but had no wish to get involved.

I must have been concerned as I was paying for whatever hence the particular grip I adopted. I also had a dummy wallet with paper credit cards cut from magazines. No one found that!

Recently in Thailand I kept my money and passport in a body bag - not to bulky and only a bit emabarrssing when exchanging currency. It only added a bit on to my wasted size. But it felt more secure than a hotel room. But when at home we relax our guard.

I'm sorry to be sexist but we men have pockets and I for one would feel a dip messing around my genitals. But then some men leave wallets in jackets on chair backs or in back pockets bulging for all to see and get squeezed-out even just from sitting in pub chairs.

Now hands-up all those that loose keys in all those pockets (or handbags - ladies) and spend minutes in the rain looking for them? Only to find they are in the other trousers (handbag).

I keep my change in my pockets ever since I had someone try to take all my paper money out of my purse whilst I ferreted in it for some change in Barcelona. The trick was to offer a flower to a lady and request one peseta in payment, refusing all offers from the gentleman to buy it. When you (the lady) get your purse out to pay, the 'vendor' would say, no, ONE peseta and then grab your paper money. Luckily I had my purse folded back in my hand and she didn't get anything but an earful of Spanish invective from our guide but it taught me a lesson.

I carry my purse and keys in a place that isn't usual for a female, and my 'handbag' is just for carrying crap.
