    Kids on the Metro

    I just had a quick question and wasn't exactly sure where to put it - so here it is. When i'm on the metro in either Moscow or St. Pete, it's happened to me on more than one occasion that kids shamelessly try to pick my pockets. Not that they are any good at it - I usually just slap their hand away or something like that. However, I was wondering what you're supposed to say to them in a situation like that.

    Thanks,

    tdk

    Well, you COULD say them that theft is bad.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Well, like I said I normally just shove them away or slap the hand or something - but I didn't know if there was any common phrase that Russians would say in this situation.

    Подростки в московском метро нюхают клей - прямо у всех на глазах!
    Так жутко! А сколько профессиональных попрошаек!
    Я так думаю.

    I'd advise you to to look like Russian and make grim face. I suppose you look like a tourist and, therefore, draw their attention as a alleged victim. They won't disturb you anymore.

    That's when a pocket chain-saw is very necessary!

    Perform the following military hand-to-hand combat move:
    - uppercut the bastard on the jaw with your right
    - throw a left hook to jaw
    - right elbow to jaw
    - bringing the right hand back hammerfist him on the jaw
    - grab the bastard's neck or collar with your right hand (important - don't grab on the right hand side of the neck - he may headbutt you - grab on the left, you will be able to control his neck moves)
    - take a small step forward with your left foot and at the same time connect your right knee sharply with his groin (you should actually be pulling him towards you with your right hand as you do this)
    - continue to knee him in the groin, on the ribcage, on the coupon (remember, you should be pulling him towards you) and make sure you're turning him arround as you're doing this (he may not be alone - if his "friends" decide to come to his rescue, they will find it harder if you got him spinning around)

    If you've cought his arm, try to twist it sharply then punch to face immidiately following up with a knee to groin. I hope you get the idea. Just do what you did as a kid at school

    These are actually kids - i'd say around 10 years old. You needn't be Chuck Norris to passify them... I was just curious to know if there is any common phrase that people say in situations like this.
