to catch a thief

What a brilliant way to end off 2006 - my wallet got nicked out of my bag just before we left the pub tonight. I am particularly pissed off because I brought my bag to the loo every single time I went all night APART FROM THE LAST TIME, which is when it got stolen, and to make it even worse my wallet had actually been out on the table all night and I had put it (and my phone) back in the bag at the end of the evening just before heading off to the loo prior to departure. My friend R said afterwards that two dodgy looking blokes had sat down in the empty seats next to our table for a few minutes while I was in the loo and he hadn't thought much of it but realised that they must have stolen my beloved Queen Bee wallet. Oh well. I've cancelled my Visa and ATM/debit cards, and hopefully they won't use my library cards and Boots loyalty card in some elaborate identity theft scam. Very fucking annoying, though. And I won't get my new cards until next Monday, probably. Bah.

On the plus side, my new iPod and the aforementioned phone were untouched. Thank goodness for stupid criminals.

Aaaargh! What gits. The cards are fixable; it's the hassle, though - and the annoyance that it was the *one time* that you hadn't been ultra-ultra-careful. I hope you didn't lose too much cash with it, too. :-(

About sixty quid! So annoying. And yes, I am particularly enraged by the one-time-I-didn't-take-the-bag aspect. Why oh why didn't I bring it? Still, as I keep telling myself, at least they didn't get the iPod and the phone...

Oh, bah! But yes, those are consolations. They could have been replaced, but your phone, especially, would have caused a great deal more hassle.

Enjoy your New Year's Eve, though. This stuff can wait.

That bites! I hope 2006 takes advantage of the next 24 hours and manages to redeem itself.

Thanks! I will soon be going into town to meet a gang of chums for a late lunch before heading down to P's parents' house to see in the new year, so hopefully it will be a fun day.

I know, it's a mystery! They must have done it really quickly, so perhaps the wallet was all they could grab in a short space of time.

Graargh! I hope the vile criminals have a cursed 2007. And I hope you have a shiny, lovely, fabulous one that almost makes up for it.

Thanks! I was literally stamping my feet with rage at the criminals last night, but I am slighty more resigned to the theft today. I am most annoyed by the loss of the wallet itself (a delightful Queen Bee one with a bird on it) but I can console myself by purchasing another one...as soon as I get my new credit card, of course...

Oh, annoying. But YAY for the iPod and phone being left. They were clearly in a hurry.

Oh Anna, no! How horrible! I'm so sorry. Was it the Stag's?

No! The Market Bar! We were sitting at one of the corner table, on the high benchy seats. I only realised it was gone when we were about to buy our Nitelink tickets - we all ran back to the bar but I knew the wallet had been in my bag. They were nice at the bar, though, and said that a security camera is pointed in that direction (not that it was much use at the time) and the vile thieves should have been captured on film, which they will give to the police.

Aaagh! That sucks. I had my purse stolen from my car once when I was putting air in the tires. The stupidest stuff happens sometimes....
