Good point, zacster. In lieu of having a lock, I have also heard people say to turn the bike upside down, loosen the wheel QR, take the seat or wheel inside, etc. Anything to slow the thief down, foul up their getaway or make them think twice about even going there.
Of course, using a sturdy lock is always best. I think my friend literally ran in for a few seconds and had the bad luck that someone was there, watching at that moment and seized the opportunity to be a criminal. We really don't live in a very bad neighborhood, crime-wise; I see people leaving unlocked bikes outside of stores fairly often here.
