Right, so.

Been to a friend's gig today in Manchester city centre. I was asked to photograph his band as I have done in the past and so I put my rather large bag down with bags of people I know.

I took my place at the front of the stage and stood talking for a moment.

Like you do, I turned to check my bag was there and fine and dandy... but no! It wasn't.

Some wanker stole my bag right from under my acquaintances noses.

What was in it? My house keys, my purse bought as a gift from someone I may not see again after September, bank card, matalan card (lol), last year's college card, my smaller camera, my brand new iPod, my jacket, my phone.

All those pictures, memories, important things just gone in like... 2 minutes?


People are horrible.


I'd like people reading this to tell me any things I should probably do that I might not have thought of to try and sort this or whatever, or alternatively try to cheer me up... because god DAMN I need it right now

TL;DR - important things were stolen - what do I do? Cheer me up! Please!


(Anyone who had my phone number should probably just delete it and, if you could, message me with yours so that if I can get a new phone I'll have your number.)


EDIT: You can now ignore the bracketed bit ^^ right there. If you had my number and deleted it I'll blog it (or you could search LAUGAM ://) and I'll update the blog once the sim's arrived, not that many of you are too bothered )

Should I not have done that?


But seriously, why didn't your friends do anything about it if your things were right by them?
I blame the society and possibly your friends.

Your celly was in there?

IIRC most cell phones can be traced via GPS units. Maybe talk to a police officer and see if this is possible, you might be able to find the perp and get your poo poo back.

*EDIT* ALSO, IMPORTANTE!!!


Make sure you change your house key locks, just in case. If someone has the balls to grab your bag when you're right next to it, I'm sure they're the kind of person who'd figure out your address through anything that may have been in your purse and show up while you're out, help themselves to your TV, DVD player, guitar, amplifier, video game consoles, etc. etc., and sell it all on eBay. Happened to my friend before, he was royally pissed, but they knew the guy who stole it all and got most of it back.

That sucks. Never been robbed before, but then again I don't have to much stuff worth stealing. Cheer up though, I'm sure you will step on some good luck soon.

My friend was sleeping in his car once at 3am with the windows down (was waiting to pick up a friend)..he fell asleep with the phone on his lap because he had been typing a text. Someone literally reached into his car window and stole the thing off his lap. The police were able to track it and the guy got arrested.
#14
They took your bag, but no-one else's? That's weird...
Were you insured? I know that that won't be of much consolation, but at least you can replace the iPod, phone, etc.

I would have thrown a fit if it was my stuff...when my old phone got stolen, I called it and left death threat messages on it...



I'm sorry for saying this but this quoe made me laugh a little. If they stole your phone, they probably don't have the password to check messages so death threats were probably not received. (Sorry for bursting your bubble)

Oh man, that sucks big time. Sorry to hear about that dude. Have you called up the cell company you're using and told them your phone was stolen? If its a line and not a pre paid sim card, I think you can get the same number issued to you. But call as soon as possible, so they know it was stolen, and in case that mofo is calling Hong Kong or where ever, you won't have to pay for it.

Hope that helps!

Our guitarist had his effects board stolen at a show once >_<

It sucks, hope you can find out something about who took it or something!
#20
Police, go to them...

I just wouldnt let my bag off my shoulder if it had all that stuff in it like yours did.,... when I went to the police over a stolen necklace they just basically told me it was my fault for taking it off though,

ZOMG KITTY AND MOUSE INTERSPECIES PORN!!!

That'd cheer up Reva more than my words ever could. Reva, I'll promise not to take the piss out of you for one whole week, even if the oppurtunity is obvious. And that sucks about your stuff. Theft is bad Although the worst theft I've been involved in was when my old housemate left and stole my JD. Luckily the bottle cap was broken, so I hope it leaked all over the c*nt's car.

I am insured yeah so I should be able to sort most of it out.

It is pretty odd that people took my bag, although it is/was giant and silver :/

Ditto. Or password protected messages. ****. So many personal messages just gone :/

Call the police?

Kitty and mouse will cheer you up.


Just called them, being phoned again tomorrow sometime. To be given the crime number I imagine.

That photo actually made me laugh somehow.

Sorry girl . Some people are shit.
I don't know how it is over there in the UK. But in Argentina it's common sense to not leave anything alone for a moment, since it will probably get stolen. Next time keep it with you.

Damn..

This sucks.

Oh a related note, I know a guy who stole a full stack from a band. They were getting ready to load up and went out to see the fans or something and he just backed his truck up, loaded the stuff in and drove off.

I simply don't take anything valuable to gigs. Or, well, anywhere. This is the main advantage of having an ancient brick phone and a £50 MP3 player. Nothing of value is lost.

I know this hardly helps you get your **** back, but perhaps in future you'll be better prepared for such an event.

But then, I'm a dude. If people want to steal my stuff, they have to put their hands in my pants

Okay... that's 2 accounts of gear being stolen so far... what the heck?!

People really are ****.

Jebus. I've already heard "it could have been worse" too many times this evening and it's like.... you have no idea.

What a crappy year.


Pathetic as well how 2 girls that I'd never met before were the only people who seemed very bothered about it, apart from my friend Tom who's a saint.

So ummm... What, exactly, was the point of this?

I had my wallet stolen with all my my money, and I didn't make a thread about it.
It's because you're a woman.

Oh that sucks. Check craigslist to see if if the ass is selling it there and notify pawn shops in your area maybe.
