What’s the fascination with wallets?

Why do you guys find it necessary to carry one?

It’s a big awkward bulk of leather and plastic, and it’s sitting there in your pocket, taking up space, making you feel uncomfortable, weighing you down, and making you a target.

It’s Friday night! What are you carrying your library card for? Your old student ID card! Your 2010 calendar? The photos of your ex! What’s with the bulk, the mass?

Next time you go out, take your ATM card and take 40 quid, put them in your front pocket and enjoy the sense of freedom.

Coming home at 3am, it’s less likely you’ll be robbed. First, you won’t have any money left. Second, you’re not displaying the bulk and therefore there’s nothing to target.

And don’t get us started on the tourists who bring their driving licenses, passports and travel visas with them to see the delights of Gaudi!





And yes, we are interested to see what the stats are like for an average post like this with a photo of a girl featured.

    quite right! i often have to stop my out-of-town guests from going out in barcelona with four credit cards, one passport, two gym cards, one library card, etc… i love this site and support it whole-heartedly – but wouldn’t it be better if we all took some REAL action? like start a petition? hold a demonstration? find out who to write letters to in the new PP government? can’t we use our power-in-numbers as a lobbying force? i love barcelona and i’m fed up with the thieves, not to mention the do-nothing police and politicians – can’t we collectively light a fire under their you-know-whats? count me in! how can i/we help most effectively?
