Crimewatch

Another watershed. Our first crime and it was before we've even opened. Our friend wandered in as if he owned the place and started looking for something to steal. The fact that we confronted him, asked him what he was doing and continued to watch every movement didn't stop him finding the nearest bottle, picking it up and taking off. It didn't occur to him that one of us might be armed with a camera phone and be pissed off enough to chase him for as long as it took to get a good shot.

And here it is:

  1. Wow! What a wanker. Surprised all you did was photograph him. I'd have punched the prick. He clearly has zero respect for someone putting their nuts on the line as you have. Grrr, makes me mad.

  2. Well in my defense he was 20 years younger than me and about a foot taller. Plus this was the end of a chase of about 500m, during which I had to extract the iPhone, find the camera function, operate the tiny slider that switches it from still to video then hold it up as I ran and dodged the Wakefield St traffic.

  3. ha ha! Awesome Dominic... (in as aweomse it way "getting robbed" can be). I agree with, Greig in a way, but would have preferred a nice sidekick into the knee, crippling him in the middle of traffic, from which point you could have thanked the bastard for not smashing the bottle and taken it back to work.
