    What was he asking "Do you wanna talk about it?" Seemed like he was talking to you like you already knew what he was talking about.

    I wonder if he thought (in his drunken haze) that he knew you?

    That is WEIRD.

    Don't know how scared I would have been (well, until several "friends" made their way over) - I can handle one guy, but I sure would be confused.

I was parked in a fairly dark section of the lot, and I was sitting in my car making sure I had enough cash on me. Suddenly this guy walks up to my car and knocks on the passenger's side window. He looked like he was 30ish.

    "Can I help you?" I asked. He just waved hello and stood there. I asked him what he wanted. He just kinda waved again and asked, "Are you gonna lock the doors?" I said, "Yes." (that door was already locked.) Then he started to walk around to my door, and I quickly locked it. He kinda backed off and put his hands up, like to say "I'm not gonna hurt you." I just sat there. (In retrospect I should've blasted my horn.) He asked, "Do you wanna talk about it?" I said, "Talk about what?" and shook my head no. Then his friend started to walk over from the bank next door (which had all its lights out and looked closed). And the guy by my car said "Hey, let's go to McDonald's, she doesn't want to talk about it." They walked into the restaurant and I drove the heck outta there.

    I guess I shoulda known better than to go to McDonald's, hm? I can't stop shaking..
    ROFL Lol Omg that is making me laugh so hard right now.

    It's just the funniest thing ever, eh?

    You did well and I'm sure the door will already be locked and you'll drive away even faster if anything like that ever happens again. Which, of course, is extremely unlikely. Whether they were a real threat or not, you passed the test.

    My brother-in-law, who works construction and works out religiously, was mugged without a fight years ago. Someone at work, whose only exercise might be walking from the TV to the fridge, was mugged a couple months ago and, after they knocked him down, he pulled out a heavy flashlight and landed some blows before the guys ran off.

    No one can know how they'll respond until they've been in such a situation. I never have been. People can be trained in martial arts or be carrying a gun, but until they're threatened, the can't know how they'll defend themselves. It just isn't in the nature of most of us to hurt someone else. That's what distinguishes the great criminals, capitalists and middle linebackers. They like to hurt people.

    Just glad you're alright! You never know if you're dealing with a creep or a panhandler or a person who truly needs a little money to make a phone call or.....
