Walking down to the ATM to get some cash I saw a well-dressed lady cross the street and get in on the passenger seat in a white Ford Fiesta. The traffic lights changed from red to green and the Fiesta drove off.
I got my money and walked back home.
On my way back the same Fiesta, now coming from the opposite direction, pulled over and the same lady got out of the car. Crossing the bike path she spat, wiped her mounth with the back of her hand and took her phone from her purse as I passed her.
Less than 5 minutes, including some driving around. Well done.

such a remarkable technique that the USPTO
rewarded the years of hard thinking that went into this earthshattering
invention with US Pat. No. 6,671,714. The two geniuses
owning this patent, Troy K. Javaher and Frank M. Weyer, has formed
“The Nizza Group” to blackmail, err, I mean sue, domain
registrars for damages. Read more than you care to know about it in C|Net's
