So I took the A up to Yeshiva to visit a collaborator on Monday, and, as I do, I spent a good chunk of the trip up reading cheerfully away on my phone. Upon getting off the train, I noticed the weight of my bag felt wrong - and this was because several pockets had been opened, causing things to flap about.

The innermost pocket had been opened. The side pockets had been opened. And here's the irony: except for pens, scratch paper, the odd math paper, and the various miscellany that make up my existence, there was nothing in the opened pockets! There was a camera hidden in a deep pocket within a pocket within a pocket, but that was not taken.

In fact, nothing was taken. I suspect the would-be thief was throughly disgusted with my inability to provide him with a laptop, or tablet, etc. A cautionary tale, but a happy one.

Yikes. Glad you didn't lose anything, but I'm sure it was still unnerving. This is why if I must stand on the train, I'd rather put my bag on the floor by my feet than risk someone helping themselves to my stuff.

In my apartment building, packages are left in the entryway, which is unlocked. When I came back from my trip today, a package my mom had sent me was opened, and someone had stolen money from the holiday card inside. Fortunately, it seems like the person didn't take anything else. Having your stuff rifled through is pretty upsetting.

Right here is the most important reason to take your bag off on the train, patricularly if you aren't travelling with a companion and therefore less likely to be ignoring your surroundings.
