I just thought I'd like to share this story with you guys, being as it is very interesting and lucky. So it was one week ago, this very day, that my 2nd generation 10GB ipod was stolen from my gym locker. That part was mostly my fault for not securing it well, and putting it in my backpack right in front of a know theif. However, I had no way to prove that he stole it from me, and the school cameras just brought up the pixelish blur that is footage of the hall outside the locker room. I waited a few days, and then started asking questions individually to people on our wrestling team. I hit gold on my third day of searching. A very observant freshman had noticed the theif attempting to sell my old ipod for a mere $35. I knew it was time to act, for soon my ipod would be sold into the black market, and dissapear forever, along with any hope I had of recovering it. Last night I called up the theif, and confronted him. Being the smart guy I am, I didn't outright accuse him, and instead asked to buy one of his stolen ipods. (This guy is in business when it comes to selling stolen ipods) He knew very well that one of those ipods was mine, but I trapped him by describing the exact ipod he had been trying to sell. He stupidly admitted that it was still in his possession, and I knew that if I played my cards right, it would again be mine. After getting him to describe it perfectly, I laid my trap. I said, "WOW DUDE THANKS SO MUCH FOR FINDING IT, THAT IS MINE, YOU ARE A GREAT PERSON." I then suggested that he might have come by it by stealing it from a person who stole it from me. He bought the load of b******t I fed him, and aggreed to return it to me the next day. I successfully alluded his suspicions, and I now have my ipod safely back in my hands, and my parents never knew it was missing. I also told my coach about what happened, and I am leaving disciplinary action to him. I have also learned a lesson, and now bring my ipod with me everywhere I go/ I actually lock my locker.
