If your lucky,, you'll run into a considerate pick-pocket... They will remove your wallet, take out the cash (leaving everything else),,, and then put the wallet back into your pocket.

That happened to me in Tijuana Mexico back in the 70's..............

Hey, even in a nude resort you have to carry something somewhere!

Two chances to get caught for a one-time gain!

I do hope then that he was stealing for a very good cause (that life saving medicine for her grandmother, for example). He doesn't sound the type to steal just to buy drugs or some such. I'm very curious about such a pickpocket, how and why he learned the skill in the first place, his "code of honor" and such.

I expect such pickpockets are rarer than conjoined twins, however.

Hi Pix,

Actually,, it was two girls..

I had gone to Tijuana that morning to buy some Tequila & Kahlua which was much cheaper across the border. After I crossed the border, I needed to use the restroom,,, so I went into a bar to relieve myself. Well, I decided to have a beer before leaving the bar and as I was about to set down,,, two girls suddenly joined me. I knew they were going to try and pick my pockets so I stayed alert to any movements they made (that was futile)..... They not only got the money out of my wallet,,, they also got the change out of my front pocket!!!!! I can honestly say I didn't have a penny to my name when I walked into the liquor store to buy the alcohol.

To this day,,, I am still amazed at how good they were. (smile)....
