Robbed

We were robbed coming back from the airport (another useless pilgrimage to Brussels).

As a start, one guy on a motorbike informed us that our pneumatic was punched. Then another one insisted that we use the services of a 24 hours mechanic. We declined the offer but the truck arrived anyway, the driver looking at us as a vulture.
I left my jacket on the car seat to change the wheel and had the impression of some fancy movement.
Finished the job, we went home, and when I was looking for my jacket, it was gone, together with my Belgian telephone.
Then, revising the happenings, we realised that it was an ambush; that our pneu was punched on purpose and the boys were part of some criminal machinery.
Welcome home!

  1. Sorry to hear that you got robbed on your way home!

    Here are my corrections:

    To start with, a guy on a motorbike informed us that we had a puncture.

    …24 hour mechanic…

    ..looking at us like a vulture…

    … when I looked for my jacket it had gone.

    …revising the events of the day….

    .. that our tyre had been punctured….
