400 bucks for a friggin' wallet? Seriously?

I think you should be punched for just going to Katz's.

I get the urge to punch someone for standing too close in line, a couple times a week at least. Good for her.

Honestly, who goes around with close to a $1K of valuables in their bag and then just leaves it unattended? She deserved it. Also: $400 wallet? Really?

Leaving behind $1,000 worth of stuff in a bag is as easy as leaving behind a bag. A laptop alone can be over $1000. It's not the 1950s any more, people.

The stupidity of people re: them leaving money and valuables unattened astounds me.

If a good samaritan finds a $400 wallet and turns it into the Ninth Precinct, I'm pretty sure it would be put into a box of valuables the cops cash in on at some pawn shop once a month or so.
