You'd think a phone in a pocket would be harder to steal than a phone in a purse, it's a smaller target and closer to your body. I'm sure at least someone had to have been wearing something with pockets.

The mother had thought that by having the OP place her phone in the purse would keep it safe. As the purse got stolen, it "shows" the mother that it doesn't matter where you place a phone, it can still be stolen.

What does it show her? That she shouldn't have ever tried to protect her daughter's phone in the first place? Because that phone would've disappered a lot faster then.

JustDerpin - Her life is fucked because her phone was stolen, so she can't go on the FML app and tell you what am idiot you are for questioning the fuckedupedness of an FML. Make sense? Good.

#30 you're assuming the kid would lose it, which is probably not true. I've had a phone since I was 12 and I never lost it, only dropped it and broken it a couple times.

51- no, I'm assuming that her mom wanted to hold her phone because OP was about to set it down and leave it there or something like that.

But then there's always the problem of taking your phone out of your pocket for a second, then forgetting it somewhere. At least if it was in a purse, it's harder to forget the purse somewhere.

It's a hell of a lot harder to steal out of someone's pocket than it is to grab a purse and run. I'd personally feel better knowing that I have something of value to me in a place where I'll most likely notice if it was taken right away and have a chance to do something about it.

#9 He said harder, not impossible. He even gave some valid points. Also, have you* ever heard of using a full sentence properly?

Snatching a whole purse of goodies is harder than trying to fish a phone out of someone's pocket.... With thinking like that its No wonder that pawn shops were always so full in Hawaii.

Maybe OP is with the family on the beach? Mother (in a swim suit) sun bathed while everyone else went swimming (in the water, cell phones in water don't mix). Bad guy steals purse while mom is sleeping and family in ocean. Well thats my guess, its most likely wrong, but who knows.

Oh, the irony! Something similar happened to me, but with a backpack. Sucks. FYL, OP. I hope your mom gets you a new one.
