If there ever was a good way to get mugged, I found it. Yeah, No one wants to get robbed, but if you do, I canât think of a better way.
So, Iâm walking down the streets of Buenos Aires at around 7 am looking for a bar and I stop at an intersection. I wanted to text one of our camera dudes and tell him that I was gonna wander around town for a while and maybe he wanted to film me. I pushed send and a guy on a bike accidentally knocks my I-phone out of my hand. Wait a second, he doesnât stop and my I-phone isnât on the ground. I look to my right and there he is, holding my phone (which has a fuck load of pictures that I donât really want made public) with his right hand and making a pretty fast getaway. Wow! Iâve been robbed!
I kind of laugh and think, pretty sneaky. What a fucking great way to get robbed. No violence, no trauma, no chance Iâm gonna run after him. Pretty sweet really. I also had a few hundred bucks in the phone case, but I would rather lose that then get held up at gunpoint or bashed in the head with a pipe. So even though I lost, I really kind of won. South America ainât such a bad place after all.
Ps. I had a passcode lock on my phone so you didnât get shit mother fucker! You do get points for style though. I was impressed.
