I notice some post on different threads about things being stolen, i.e. passports, wallets, purses and etc. I thought it would be informative to post some stories about what you had stolen and some tips on what you are going to do in the future to prevent it from happening again. I had my little jewelry case, (a nylon case w/zipper about 3" x 3") stolen out of my outside zippered luggage compartment on our trip last week. I've filed a report w/TSA and United Airlines which I know wont do a thing except that its on file, but at least I filed the report. I cant say if it was the airlines, airport, TSA or who was the culprit, we had to leave our bags w/the bellboy coz our room wasn't ready upon check-in and we also received extra towels right away when we checked into our room.....so anyone could have taken it so there's no way to point the finger at anyone except myself for leaving it in the outside pocket I guess. The jewelry case had nothing in it that amounted more than $100 total in it, if that, but what p#ssed me off was I had my ankle bracelets I've been collecting over the years of traveling to Cancun and Negril, and the biggest kicker, I had my wedding jewelry in it, which again.....i think i bought it for $40 when I got married ages ago, just a simple matching necklace and earring set.....in todays market would be worth nothing but the fact it was my wedding jewelry.....gone.....I'm disgusted with the fact that its gone and even more irritated that someone took my piddly jewelry that wasn't worth squat.....so hopefully whoever did take it got a good kick in the face when they found out it wasn't worth jack to them, and someday they get a conscience and feel sick knowing they took something that was only worth something to ME!!! I guess its lesson learned and from now on, the jewelry i wear on the plane will be what I'm wearing all week because now that I have nothing else to choose from to wear!!!
