    Default so Ed Lee got robbed while in Paris

    by a 12 years old girl. and he couldn't catch her !!!!

    but no worries, his knight came rescue

    for those of you not on his Facebook (don't think the Sheriff got a friends invitation), in his own word:

    "In a flash, a young girl grabbed it & ran. I tried to run after her but I tripped over my chair & fell to the ground. "
    "The girl was approximately 12 years old"
    "are like European ninjas...I didn't stand a chance..."


    "(an athletic-looking Moroccan guy) saw the whole thing, dashed after the girl, & wrestled the money away from her"
    "totally looked like Tony Parker (A Frenchie!) the point guard for the San Antonio Spurs"



    that goes on tell you S2K Challenge drivers are

    from the thread title, i thought it was one of those Jeff Tyler got stranded in England scam. LOL

    Good thing Ed was able to recover whatever it was that the girl grabbed. (maybe his mojo? j/k)

    A 12-year-old French girl could out-drive Ed too.

    3 gypsies arrive at the gates of heaven,

    St Peter says to them "God says there is only room for 2 of you and you are to sort out between yourselves who is coming in, I will return in 10 minutes to see your choice."

    10 minutes later St. Peter says to god "They've gone."

    "What all 3 of them?" asks God

    "No" St Peter says, "The gates.."

    I love France, but hate the French. Maybe it's because I'm British.

    As for tripping over a chair while trying to chase a 12 year old girl...

    Taken out of context. It sounds like he is a Pedo.

    To be fair, it was probably a Romanian.

    more likely an Albanian...assuming they are smart enough to know how to make it that far North West instead of just hopping the border to Greece

    I've gotten robbed twice in Europe, ~20 years ago. once in southern France, once in northern Italy.

    thought it has gotten a lot better by now.

    I've lived and traveled all over the world, in many 3rd world country, in Africa and Asia. never been robbed once.
    or it could be an Asian thing in Europe. Asian has a habit of carrying cash (or used to), thus an easy target. apparently they can't run helps

    Gee...William...thanks for taking my FB post out of context...haha.

    My 1st experience getting robbed: I received my bill at an outdoor cafe in Paris & I set down a 50 note. In a flash, a young girl grabbed it & ran. I tried to run after her but I tripped over my chair & fell to the ground. My waiter (an athletic-looking Moroccan guy) saw the whole thing, dashed after the girl, & wrestled the money away from her. Needless to say, my waiter got a big tip =) I still love you Paris!!!

    And a tribute to the gypsies:

    Uh oh...I think Fil will have some words to say about that:

    I was borm in Romania yeah, but the reason that everyone is lead to believe they're "from" there (gypsies by definition have no homeland) is because we (Romanians) have historically been more tolerant of them than the rest of Europe...as in we took in all their orphans, which leads to another misconception about Romania being a country full of people that don't know how to use contraceptives...and round and round we go, love the media, they are so clever
    The truth is she's probbaly not a real gypsie, she's probably just a vagrant or a drug addict...Europe just has this ongoing issue of labeling people as outsiders (think Jews/Hitler)...there's over 50 countries in an area less than half the size of the US and every country thinks they are the best...you're basically travelling around in the equivalent of fraternity row, where each frat house is its own country

    I was born in Romania too

    My dad's friend grew up in Germany. He told me they used to have shoplifting signs in German and Romanian, which was weird because Romanians were <1% of the population at the time. Coincidence??
