I know the Romanian pickpocket gangs work this way but there are others who may work differently.
First of all, put all your dirty tissues in an outside pocket rather than getting rid of them.
When someone bumps into you, apologises and pats you down, don't feel if your wallet is still there, rather pat the pocket with the dirty tissues.
These people work as a team and there is someone watching you to see which pocket you pat.
He's the one who will pick your pocket. Twice I have lost my dirty tissues.

I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.
