There was a disturbing event on the news recently. Several teachers had their wallets or bags stolen by someone who walked into their (empty) classroom. In each instance, the teacher had left her bag on the floor; either next to or under her desk. It was estimated that the theft took only seconds to occur. Question: Do you protect your bag from theft, while you're at work? Losing a Coach bag is expensive, on top of the catastrophe of identity theft! I've got to admit that I've been stupid on occasion; leaving my bag alone in my cubicle, on top of my desk. I think it comes from a need to trust people. Since the school incident, I've tried to be more careful, though.
