So I mentioned about thieves the other day. Well, last night I got off the bus near Pra Kanong and stood for a minute looking at the message I’d just recieved on my cell phone. A short man came running past me, full stride, and grabbed my cellphone. Then preceded to run through traffic at the Sukumvit 71 intersection ignoring cars. Quite a gettaway actually.
Unfortuatly, the guy didn’t get my cell phone. Slippery fingers basiclly just slapped my cell phone as I turned away, and ran like hell.
So, luckly I still have my phone, but I felt pretty bad after that. I know it is a big city, but I guess I hadn’t seen any crime yet at all. I mean, this guy really hurt my feelings.
Is this kinda thing pretty common? Has everyone had any experience with a pickpocket/burglar/ect?
