Paper Chase

by | 25th, May 2004

‘THE unenlightened among you may suppose that when it comes to handling papers Germans are something of the Olympic champions.

You’d, of course, be wrong, and to prove how much has changed in the land over there, we hear of three German muggers.

Having forced their 29-year-old victim to hand them his wallet at Solingen-Ohligs train station, the trio withdrew the money.

Then, in an act of rare generosity, one of the gang returned what he believed was the now empty wallet to his victim.

But he’d erred, and had instead handed over his own wallet – with all his identification papers inside.

The police cleared the matter up quickly.’
