I was having a really great night. I saw Johnny Depp, went to some parties, and was waiting for my husband to pick me up when this dude grabbed my phone from my hands and started running off.

I ran after the guy, and then he turned into an alley and I think my reason kicked in and I stopped chasing.

The thing is, I had my Nikon D80 in my bag, and I guess that would've been a more expensive loss.

I'm eligible for upgrade by Nov 29. So I can do that for $199. So all things considered, it's better to lose the phone then my backup camera.

That said, 9th and Congress is not that unsafe. It's downtown Austin, though it was at 1 am.

I guess you never know.

It does make me feel like Austin is not as safe :(

I read about that on Facebook! That really sucks, but I guess that it is good that he didn't take your camera instead. But yeesh. Having something stolen from you really does feel awful, regardless of what it is.

I'm just glad you're safe! That's so scary that someone stole it literally out of your hands.

both hands!
i was on my iphone sitting on a bench, and had both hands on it.
when he grabbed it, i instinctively held it tighter, and he dragged it out of my hands.

How horrible! I'm glad it wasn't a worse loss or turn violent. Crap like this is why I hate people. Hugs.

i know, it makes me be angry and hate people, and harder to be compassionate.

Ugh, that's terrible!

I had my purse stolen from downtown when it was a foot behind our group of about 8 people, underneath the table we had been using, along with 3 other purses. That felt terrible, but this is way more personal than that!
