I guess it had to happen sooner or later

We had to make a run to the US Embassy in Mexico City today, Wrapped that up, had some lunch and noticed we were right by a metro station - so elected to take the metro rather than a cab to the bus terminal (no traffic and free).

When the train arrived, the passengers got out of the car and all of a sudden I was surrounded by perhaps a half-dozen or so young men who pushed me from behind like it was a football match, Fortunately they did not bother my wife. 15 seconds after getting in the car I realized that someone had lifted my cell phone from my back pocket.

I just let my guard down. It could have been worse - it could have been my wallet which was in the other pocket. I should have had both my wallet and phone in front pockets. Well when we got home I suspended the number until I get pick up a new phone/sim. And, with a sigh of relief I was able to log into my gmail account and change the password.

The cab would have been a lot cheaper in the long run.

Thanks for the report. It is good to hear the good, bad, and the ugly rather than the too popular, overzealous hype and "paradise" reports.
