Why leave your wallet on the boot lid! Just asking for it to be nicked & surely the man must have noticed people walking past. Lesson learnt.

There but for Gods will... I am always forgetting where I put things, leaving stuff on the roof etc. but I do have a failing memory. Fortunately, Mr Cameron has emptied my wallet of its £10 note I kept for emergency, so I will, hopefully, get off a little lighter.

Who's to say the wallet was in fact left on the boot lid ? after all surely if he was loading the boot, the boot lid would be up ?

it does sound odd, plus no description of the thief either, sure he didn't forget it on the boot lid and drive off?

It does indeed sound suspect. Surely after paying you'd slide your wallet back into your pocket while still in the shop? Why push the trolley / carry the bags with a wallet in your hand?
If he was loading the shopping into the back of his car then why put the wallet on the boot... he drives a BMW which are quite big, the easier option would have been to throw the wallet onto the driver seat or into your pocket...
Sounds a lot to me like he's put it on top of his car and driven off... easily done. I once did this on my friends car with a small purse, when we got to traffic lights a lady next to us shouted "Your purse is on the roof!".. goodness knows how it clung on but I was so glad it did as I had my last £30 to last 2 weeks back then inside it.

Anyway, the article is confusing... was another man helping him and had HIS wallet stolen or was it the drivers wallet?

Was the blue Beemer his or next to his car?

Surely the chap would have seen someone else around at the time his wallet went AWOL?
