PICKPOCKETRY

This ancient art is enjoying a breath taking resurgence. Put your phone or wallet in your hip pocket and eventually you will lose them.

    Happened to me on the el platform at Morgan. A guy, walking his bicycle, "bumped" his bicycle into me as he picked my pocket!

    Whenever you are bumped or stopped for whatever unexpected reason, check you purse or wallet immediately. You may be able to get your money back. It has happened to me on the "L," on an escaltor and even a revolving door. Keep your wallet and your cash in separate pockets. And never keep anything of value in a hip pocket, no matter how tight your pants (Ladies).
