This one time I was in Paris visiting, riding the subway, and some 14 year old guy tried to pickpocket my wallet out of my front jeans pocket. He failed, I grabbed his hand as he was pulling it out. I was so shocked, I think he was too. We just kind of stood awkwardly for another stop or two. He didn't want to run away because it would admit guilt, and I didn't confront him because I was like 19 and never had anything like that happen to me before and was just kind of stunned lol.

Hopefully that was his first and last time trying something like that. Guess he thought that people from other countries(especially America) are dumb, i don't know where you're originally from. Very bold of the kid.

You're probably right. I hope it was his last time too. I also in retrospect wish I had caused a scene to ensure it would be his last time.
