I admit, I've never been mugged and never heard of anyone in my area ever being mugged in my life.

But if I ever do, I plan on picturing the mugger naked. They say that's a good way to keep calm in a stressful situation.

I do like the fake wallet trick though. It would probably get far more use on my nightstand though. You know, the regular wallet, and then the "wife wallet".

I have never been mugged but when someone on the street asks me for money I just say sorry I don't carry cash and that usually does the trick. I think I will use the decoy wallet when I know I am going downtown or other places where something like that can happen.

It's really an awful feeling to be mugged, even if they don't get away with much. Happened to be one time in a parking lot in Lake City, Florida, which is not even close to being a real city. Guy asked me for the time, I looked down at my watch and he grabbed my bag and took off running. For some reason I tried to chase him down, screaming and cursing, but he got away. It really pissed me off and took me a couple weeks to get over it. Infuriating.

When I was around 22. I was taking a jeepney ride in Olongapo City, Phillipines

It was in the afternoon and I was the only passenger until a local jumped in. It wasn't my first trip to the PI. He asked if he could see my wallet, or something like that. Being young, smug and and full of.. confidence. I pulled it out handed it to him. I saw the smile on his face as he figured he'd just scored. He told me how nice a wallet it was and I saw his eyes darting, looking for a place to jump out of the jeepney and steal my wallet. Then he opened it. Not a peso in it, no ID, nothing but an empty wallet. He handed it back to me and got off the jeepney at the next corner.

I may be dumb but I aint stupid.. (I need to post that one on the annoying things people say thread)

Years ago my 80 something year old grandma was mugged in broad daylight. She held on to her purse, was swung around and slammed to the ground and her purse stolen. She was bruised up pretty bad, but generally ok and not mentally messed up by it.
I sure that son of a &#)$*@#!!&#@ is in prison by now and I hope he gets cornholed every day.

I hope so too. We will all get old someday. I do got to say, 80, is old. And I wonder if old people ever want to just.. I don't know.

The world is not getting any better it seems. To much hate and violence. Maybe it has always been that way. Me personally, I don't look forward to getting old and living in a land that is violent and plays violence towards the elderly. Was it always this way? I'm thinking not but since I'm posting on the WW web. Certain somebody will tell me I'm wrong.
