The man who stole, sorry, bought an iPhone from a 3-year-old in Greenwich Village last month admitted yesterday that perhaps $2 wasn't fair compensation for the pricey toy, having apparently realized that children must at least be capable of controlling their own bowels before they are able to barter.
According to the Post, Feliberto Ramirez, who at the time was living in a homeless shelter on the Bowery, acknowledged that he "fucked up," but hedged by saying that the child did, after all, wearily agree to the bargain. "I took the phone," Ramirez admitted. "But I offered the kid two dollars. He shook his head, said yeah, and he handed me the phone. And I walked out of the store."
Ramiriez went on to sell the phone in the Bronx for $50, but unfortunately, he'll need to haggle a lot more toddlers before he's able to afford his $10,000 bail.
