Could be the places I frequent or maybe I have 'SUCKER' on my forehead. "Can I ask you a question?", you just did. "Can you help me out, (insert BS Story)" I always reply "Funny I was going to ask you the same thing" and they leave with a grin. The other night about 2AM at my local Sheetz (Raleigh PD and Wake Sheriff always hangout ) and I pull in to get some gas, guy with almost new Tundra on other side of pumps, says hello and tells me he has the wrong credit card with him and if I can help him out, as he talks he walks closer to me with his right hand in jacket pocket, I slowly grab the gas nozzle and keep it low ready as if I was going to put it back in the pump, was only getting $20 gas. Told him just mailed off the child support (my BS story) and I too am tapped out until the end of the month, they have an ATM inside if that helps. He apologizes and says he understands, sorry to bother me as he turned and walked away. He ended up inside and made a gas purchase and I stayed to eat there. Next time I am pulling into the pump without any other vehicles near it.
