swimming in fairy floss.......
*grrrrr* I had something similar happen to me recently. I had my purse stolen out of my freaking bag while waiting for a train! The station I was on was SWARMING with police, and they STILL had the audacity to OPEN my bag and pull it out!
It's not the fact that they took my purse that enrages me- it's the whole way that everyone around me, behind me, and certainly next to the person who took it didn't say a freaking thing. Didnt attempt to stop the person, didnt bother informing me, didnt even so much as indicate anything was happening!!! If YOU say someone opening someone elses backpack and taking their wallet- would you just stand there and let it happen?! *grrrr*...
There's always a huge sense of violation when that does happen though. Your city isnt the only place where crime is rampant. It happens everywhere, I live in Sydney Australia, and I'm pretty sure that things like that happen just as much as it does over there. People are aware of it- some become complacent (like me) but other's just stand back and watch and let it happen.
I know how you feel.
Are you scared? BOO! Are you now?
