A Confident Crook
So, I was in the locker room the other morning. A guy says "Excuse me" and then starts rifling through my gym bag.
What I didn't see was the second before when his goggles fell into my bag from his locker.
I stood there in baffled silence, perhaps so impressed by his nonchalance that if he had taken my wallet, I'd have let him go.
So, it got me thinking. You're somewhere (locker room, restaurant) where your wallet is out. A stronger comes up to you, says "Excuse me", takes the wallet, says "I'll be RIGHT BACK", and hurries away.
What % of people would that work on? I feel like it might. Because crooks don't usually show that kind of courtesy.
