When you walk around pushing a pram you seem to be the favourite target for criminals.I have had my cellphone stolen from my nappy bag (lets call this my beginners stage,my little man was weeks old and it was literally one of our 1st outings out to the shops just the two of us and I fell victim to crime), then there was the Zara incident (we will call this my novice stage – I caught her just in time and she hid my cellphone under some children’s clothes, but in true Jozi style I went for her grabbed her arm and made a huge scene at the ever proper Zara Sandton store, however hubby was left alone with two kids and trying to still look for my ringing phone so it took but only a second for the koei to dash out the store).
My last attempt was at the Makro in Alberton where I caught them with their hands right in my bag,I pretended to not see and continued to walk (by now I’m calling myself PROFESSIONAL because I had a plan…I walked they walked, I zagged they zagged.Eventually the two men followed me to the toy isle and I made my attack.My husband screaming for me to calm down thought I was a looney,I grabbed them and wouldn’t let go, screaming “security” , “security” at the top of my lungs but the one I hadn’t grabbed made a run for it and when i went to grab him he’s friend made a run for it as well.
So I’m tired, I don’t want to be a victim anymore and frankly I think the next person who tries to grab anything that belongs to me will get hurt.I’m small , I’m 1.53cm but I’ll pack a mean punch.In fact when I get to my local Makro store the 1st thing I do is go to the sporting goods department (I kid you not) I grab a metal baseball bat and walk around with it while I do my shopping……I’m waiting….I’m just waiting.
This is not a way to live life right???
I’ve found an awesome gadget.A great gadget.
The BAG – SECUR
What is it and how does it work?
Its got a carabiner one on side to attach to your handbag / nappy bag etc and on the other side is the seat-belt attachment.(see pic below)
This bag isn’t going anywhere – or at least your “bag” will give them a good fight for their thug money by that time you long on your way.
I tried it at the shops today and will definitely use it again. The trolley guy was a little perplexed with what I was doing but hey safety 1st!
I love this product and want to share it with you.
