SOunds like that might be a good tactic, Liza ! I remember in the bad old days before New York City cleaned up it's street crime, we were told to NEVER go out without SOME money for a mugger --- to carry $20 in a pocket to give them as they tended to get angry and violent if we had nothing to give ; and another $ 20 in our socks or shoes, to use in an emergency.
Interesting to hear that they're less interested in pinching cars now --- I wonder what he planned to do with your keys ? Maybe just took them to stop you from chasing him. A dmmy bag might help, so long as the contents were convincing enough at first glance.
Sorry to hear about your awful experience. I wish there was some way we could convince there robbers and hujackers to concentrate on attacking members of Parliament and Ministers, so they could understand what the rest of us experience, and why nobody ever believes them when they announce with didgy figures that the crime rates are falling !
Oh, and good luck with the exam ! I'd hold thumbs for you, but my typing here is bad enough already !
