Fool me twice
I no longer believe I dropped my wallet on Wednesday. I think there was a thief in my building.
Why? I am embarrassed to admit this but once again my wallet has been emptied of its cash. It happened between 2:00 am and 6:50 am today. This time the robber left my wallet on the table in the genkan, but I don’t sit my wallet on my hat so I noticed right away.
Now what? Aside from being more diligent about locking the door and keeping my wallet far away from the genkan, I will go to the police and report the thefts, alert the building security, and post a notice to warn the neighbors.
So much for my complacent feelings of security.

That’s too bad. These days such KOSODORO are increaseing, while bad, sad ,terrific matter also often happend.
Why dont you setup a webcam somewhere and a dummy wallet awaiting for the thief to come again? Then you catch whoevers doing it. Try www.willingsoftware.com/ It can do motion activated recording.
great idea VW! did you see the article on BBC last week about the guy who was caught stealing a computer because the webcam was setup to send photos to an email address? very tricky..
kristen, you could also setup an alarm that is tripped if the door is opened during the night. sorry to hear you’ve been robbed twice! :( i hope they catch whoever it is.

That’s really hard to imagine.
So sorry to hear that’s going on there - I hope it’s over.
Want me to camp overnight in your genkan with a baseball bat?
I would not be surprised if the thought has already crossed your mind, but I’m getting a very strong vibe that your “purp” is a minor. Keep your eyes peeled for whispering minors.
