So I get a phone call today from the missus in Sainsbury at about 1215 pm to tell me I need to come to the shop to pay for the goods in her trolley. 15 minutes prior, she was speaking to me asking for some advise on an ipod docking thingy she was looking at. At the same time, her bag, which was open and unwatched in the trolley, was targeted and her purse was removed.
Luckily, there wasn't much cash (Only about £120), but all her CC and Bank Cards were in it. I cancelled those before going to the shop. In the meantime, the shop reviewed the CCTV footage and they could see the guy who did it, but the quality was a bit naff. (Thats not meant as info for any shoplifters!!!)
The police were supposed to be contacting her and the shop "within 10 minutes". Needless to say, that never happened.
The missus has now also realised he driving license was also in the purse. (Luckyily for her, she was speaking to me at the time, else her iPhone would also no doubt be missing.
Just renewed the license online. (She had one of the old paper type, but they use passport photo's - so didnt need anything more!) (Surprisingly, they took my card for payment, even though there was no place to insert my name anywhere!)
Thing is...... she'll never learn. Never closes anything - even lids on jars etc.
What's the best way to train so it doesn't happen again? She's feeling sorry for herself ATM (as is my wallet!) - but it'll soon be forgotten.
There must be something to ensure basic common sense occurs? Especially as Spurs were about to kick off... more consideration is definitely needed.
