Somebody tried to rob me at bloemendaal

Another fine sunny day at Bloemendaal! Although somebody tried to steal my wallet, luckily I felt his hand grabbing the wallet in my back pocket. He grabbed it, and I touched his hand while he wanted to dive behind some people. He got scared and dropped the wallet immediately.

Maybe I should have been more offensive, but I am just glad that I still have my stuff. Reminds me of that movie “King of New York“, where Christopher Walken gets robbed by a gang inside the metro and decides to offer them a job. He gives his card and says, “I want you to work for me, please visit my office” The gang was stunned by his proposal and walked away.
