Even Muggers Don’t Think Flip Phones Are Worth a Dime


Beggars can’t be choosers, but apparently robbers can.

When a mugger held up 25-year-old Kevin Cook in New York City’s Central Park this weekend, he was so disappointed by Cook’s outdated cell phone that he simply rejected it, the New York Post reports.

“Once he saw my phone, he looked at it like, ‘What the f–k is this?’ and gave it back to me,” the Brooklyn resident said.

The mugger and his accomplice both fled before police could apprehend them. Cook said the whole situation was “kind of humorous” — besides, you know, the fact that the would-be thief had a gun.

Perhaps if the altercation had occurred in Brooklyn rather than Manhattan, the mugger would have wanted the phone for its vintage appeal. Or just to use it ironically.
