My left front pocket was open as it was slashed by a razor while I slept. Drivers license, credit card, photos, and one hundred dollars in cash was stolen from the wallet that used to be there. I was lucky enough to get a free token from the man behind the window after I told him what had happened. Finally I got home and slept off the nightmare which ruined my weekend.
