Many of us have been approached by complete strangers who seem to need gas money. I went out to grab a bite with my sister tonight, and after we got done eating we just got into her truck, this guy with a gas can in his hand came up to where we were. He knocked on the driver side window where my sister was sitting and she rolled down her window all the way. The guy asked us if we had any cash to give him for gas. I immediately put my hand on my G19 which was on my right hip, and the guy couldn't see me reach for it as I was in the front passenger seat. He told us he wasn't looking to rob us or anything, and I told him "I hope not, and I don't have any cash to give you." After he left he approached a different vehicle and actually got IN on the passenger side. Not a minute later the driver of that car kicked him out and he was standing in the middle of the road swearing at the driver. Anyway, I'm just glad we weren't targets for a robbery or car theft.
I thought about what just happened tonight, and I saw him approach us before I got in, and I should have stayed outside the truck and asked him what he wanted while he was running across the street to where we were. The truck would have still blocked his view from where my right hand was, oh well live and learn. I told my sister next time she is approached by a stranger, do not roll down the window all the way.
