This was just all-out stupidity. Which is fine, because it helped me make a smart choice in the end.
Well, apparently they made it pretty easy off of you.

Though that's not surprising, that's pretty funny.

Whether it's an iPod or a hooker...you get screwed either way.

There was a guy that begged practically everyday on the corner of 52nd and Park Avenue. He looked pretty ragged, but I wouldn't doubt that he had serious money backing him up. He even talked to some of the fellow workers around!

To make even more out of an undesirable situation, the iPod they stole was a first generation Touch. I bought a 2nd generation Touch, which apparently has many more advantages.

I lose, but win at the same time.
