You Will Need
- Worn clothing
- Angry glare
Put away iPod
Put away that iPod. Stick it in your pocket until you’re somewhere safe.
Put wallet in front pocket
If you carry a wallet, don’t keep it in your back pocket. Instead, put it in a front pocket. Better still, keep money in your socks.
Wear stained shirt
Instead of a pink polo, try a white T-shirt—with stains.
Don't act like tourist
Stop staring up at buildings like a tourist. Try to seem familiar with your environment. Periodically yell, 'Benny! Where you at!'
Adopt angry glare
Adopt an angry glare.
While maintaining your angry glare, do your best to project confidence. Like dogs, muggers can smell fear. Pretend that you’re a judo master, or that you have retractable adamantium claws.
