My wallet was stolen tonight — stolen from my gym bag which was locked in my gym locker. Strange thing is the lock was not even tampered with.
When I found out, I was so mad and upset, I was shaking. I’m still shaking I’m so pissed!
Long story short, there were a few people this evening who had their wallets (and phones — but luckily I had my bberry on my person) this evening. We filed a police report. And the officer revealed this was a common — nearly weekly — occurrence at this particular Bally Total Fitness (on Waukegan and Lake Cook in Deerfield, IL.). He said it’s very easy to pick into the tumbler/dial locks — so easy it’s almost worthless to use them. (I just looked at a video on youtube. Yeah, it’s scary easy.)
So I have to get a new license tomorrow on my lunch break. And I have no access to money, aside from the $50 I have in coins, which I just went to Jewel and cashed out so I could buy gas to get to work tomorrow.
Oh, and in the hour or so they had access to my cards, the fuckers spent over $200 at Abercrombie & Fitch! Gross!
So watch your pockets. This is the second time in a few months that money was stolen from me. The thieves are getting very, very crafty. I’m better off stuffing my money in a mattress.
