“Dear PoPville,

Saturday night my roommate and I went dancing to one of our old haunts, the Wonderland Ballroom on 11th St. While we were dancing, we hung my purse, which contained both our wallets and cell phones on a hook behind us. Keeping the purse in sight, we danced for about 2 hours! There were only a couple of times that someone was standing between me and my bag, and I kept what I thought was a close eye on the bag. When we left, we discovered that my roommate’s brand new iPhone was gone from my bag. When we checked our wallets, all the cash was gone, but cards were still there. We left a note with the Wonderland staff. Has anyone else had an experience like this? Is it even worth filing a police report? I hope others can learn from our mistakes. Next time we will make sure to keep the bag on us at all times.”
