Too Stunned To Yell!

yesterday, as i was typing the post about damien’s psych results and all that, i was sitting in an internet café… much like the one i’m in now. between each pc station is a slightly raised “desk” i s’pose you could call it. well, yesterday i put my handbag on this desk thingy between me and damien and towards the wall where i could see it. we’d probably been there for about half an hour when i sensed a presence behind me- i look up and to my right and there’s a guy standing there- with my phone in his hand and half out of my handbag! i was speechless people! SPEECHLESS! and this is unusual for me- the last time someone tried to pick my pocket i chased him and rammed him with a full trolley, and another time i grabbed her by the arm and hung on while i screamed for security! as soon as this little fucker saw me looking at him he dropped the phone and walked non-chalantly out of the café! i was literally speechless. damien and i both looked at each other… half expecting a candid camera type moment! the audacity of this son of a bitch was just staggering! i know he couldn’t see my phone without peering into my handbag from above, and the battery alarm was going off too so he knew there was a phone there… but i couldn’t get over him coming into a “shop” where only damien and i were sitting besides an older man behind me- to take my phone out of my handbag- in full view of me! anyhoo- by the time i thought to stand up or yell he was long gone. on our way out of the shopping centre we saw a couple of policemen and asked them to keep a look out for the dude in a yellow t-shirt, but really- i was so angry i could barely speak!! i think if i had caught up with him or something i would have chucked him down the stairs or something!

  1. I would have yelled – thats how I am. I react first and think later. I would definitely have yelled at him or something.

  2. Sometimes we are so stunned,we are speechless. It’s only afterwards,when it’s all over,that we come up with what we wish we said and did.

    I always keep my pocketbook between my feet when I am in a food court so that no one can get it!

    I’m glad you are ok.

  3. If I’d been there I would’ve helped you throw him down the stairs, the cheeky sod!

    I saw ur 24 questions tag, btw – will get right on it!
