OK, I'm no master, but this forum needs a serious jump-start. I'm going to try to jump the jump start so here are a few basics. No! I am not psychotic:-)! This is MAGIC so relax, read and enjoy (don't forget practice).
Step one Targeting a victim (um... I mean spectator)
First things first, yes I know this ain't PC but so waht? The easiest people to pickpocket are those with a from of disability, slight blindness, someone who is DEAF, yes I know its morally wrong but thats the truth. Cardinal Rule of this Section= Never ever ever go aftert completely blind people! Very often they have developed they're other senses to a point beyond our realty, they can sense things like the tiniest vibration. Pro-test, the test of a true professional is one who can pickpocket someone who's blind.....I wouldn't recommend trying it... Pro-Tip go after older people!
Section 2 Targeting premium clothing-
CARDINAL RULE FOR THIS SECTION = Baggy Clothing is 1st choice. Always try to pickpocket people who wear baggy clothing, buttons are much better than zippers, hey make much less noise. Never ever go after people wearing skin tight leather or neoprene or something. Master-test, the test of a true master is one who can pickpocket a blind older person wearing skin tight clothing.
Section Three: The Method
1. Carry a newspaper (NY Times or something sophisticated)
2. Wear proper clothing (more sophisticated)
3. Be NICE (Cardinal Rule of this section)
4. Walk how a proud person would walk.
Ok. Once you have met the above this is the serious stuff.
1. The bump method (Dificulty Medium)
For this method one must be sure to know exactly what the target is wearing, you have very limited time to acquire the item so you must be precise. Remember that when one tries to reach into a pocket one must use only 3 FINGERS any more and it is too bulky!! Remeber that. Generally pass the person on the left, trip and bump, be very apolegetic, pick up their equipment and walk off slowly, very slowly!
Remember, This information is just for FUN, for STAGE COMEDY! I do not hold any responsibility for your stupidity in using this in ANY other circumstance, yes, STUPIDITY!
The next three methods will be published everytime there is a new original post, REPLIES DON'T COUNT, Thanks for readung, have fun!
