OK. Just came home from my work Christmas dinner. I live in the Chicago suburbs and work for a Brazilian company. So we just had our Christmas party at Fogo de Chao, the Brazilian steakhouse. Exellent drinks and food (all steak as much as you can eat). I was going to bring my Nikon D40X but decided not to. I didn't want to have to babysit my camera when I was trying to have a good time. So after a while I wished I had brought it. Everyone wanted pics and no camera. So we're getting ready to leave and some random people are taking some pics. I look over and this old timer is playing around with this bad ass camera. Not sure what the model was but it was a Nikon and it made my 40 look like a kids toy. So I start chatting with the fellow and tell him I'm just getting into photography and have a D40X and etc etc etc. So he's like 'hey will you take some pics of us and our party?' and is trying to hand me this bad ass camera. OK sure. Still not sure the model. Has a big LCD and a screen on the top of the body where my 40 doesn't. So he hands me the camera and walks away. I mean he gone. I'm looking around, I'm holding his camera, I'm standing next to the exit, and this guy is gone, taking a piss or something. I'm 2 seconds from making a run for the door. I gotta be holding over 2 grand in my hand, where is this guy? So I stick around, he comes back, and I take some pics of him and his family next to the Christmas tree. I'm sure they sucked. He's like 'OK thanks alot' and I say ' No, get back over there, I'm not done'. So I'm acting like I'm a pro or something. I take like 10 shots just cause I didn't want to give the camera back. So, In the end, I didn't steal his ****, but I didn't give it back until I was done playing with it. DONT HAND YOUR CAMERA TO STRANGERS!!! If I was a lesser man than I think I am, I could have been go SO easily. I hate thieves and would never steal someones hard earned stuff. But never underestimate the power of temptation.
