Feeling for Wallet
When in a tense or stressful situation, such as in a crowd or around suspicious people, people will usually feel or check for their wallet, purse, or other valuable to insure they are still there. This is a waste of time since, if it is not there, it is too late to check. The only person it does help is the thief, who now knows where you are keeping your valuables. It saves them having to guess where you keep your wallet and lessens their chance of being discovered or captured when they make their move. Before you enter a situation where you may be concerned about your valuables, move them to a safer location, such as a man moving his wallet to a front pants pocket, and then do not keep feeling to see if it is there.
