Urban Fiction: Living it Out - Day Six: A New Beginning

A dark city…a quiet night…crying children and a moment of chance; these are the things that the thief-of-opportunity needs to drop a bomb of confusion into your life.

How many of you have seen the woman who is walking around the store checking the shelves, chasing kids and of course this one, the mother who is an entire aisle away. Or, how about the mother who turns to put the baby into the car seat while her purse is sitting in the basket at the rear of the car. I can only imagine how Nate Richards would handle this situation, but I always wanted to just grab the purse and walk away then turn and watch as the mother discovers her purse is missing.

To be honest, I did once, but that will have to wait for a different post. Smile.

So what’s the moral of this story? There are enough bad things and bad situations going around without our helping the bad guys out. But, if you leave your valuables laying out where “they” can grab it you’re just sticking your head in the lion’s mouth so to speak. But if you want to keep your stuff where you left it you might want to keep your eye on it…. Just saying.

  1. Good reminder to all of us to remain attentive to our things and our surroundings!! Sad how often people aren't! I know I've been guilty a time or two. :-)
