--Just Be Aware

Yesterday, after work I had to get gas. As soon as, I started the my SUV I had the little bell go ding and it was gas time. I went across the highway to the Wal-Mart gas station to get some gas but I got impatient and left that station just waiting to get in the parking lot. I went back across the highway to try a station over there just down the street from the mall. Well, just down the street is a Shell gas station right down from a steak house restaurant not like it is out in the middle of no where. Well, I got out of my vehicle to pump my gas and I was on the cell phone with the doctors office. I noticed a man had just pulled up to the pump right beside me and he had rolled down his windows in his car. He said and this is direct quote, " Ma, I am really embarrassed I just got out of the hospital and I have no money." "I live in Dandridge (which is about 45 miles found the little town I live in) can you buy me a gallon of gas so I can get home." I politely got back in my vehicle did not say one word to him and stay on the phone with the doctor office I was talking to. He finally pulled out after a minute or two it seemed. The strange thing about it all was he was in a brand new little Nissan car that still even had temporally tags on it and the paperwork that give you details about the car you know like the price and etc. I was scared to death to say the least. I waited until he left and pump three gallons of gas in a vehicle and then the pay at the pump option which was not working correctly so went inside to make sure my debit card was accepted and the clerk said yes. Then I told her I would have filled up my truck, but I just proceeded to tell her what had just happened in their parking lot she just looked out me like she was in shock. Just be caution people there are some scary things going on out there today. I just had all kinds of things run through my head. What if this had happened??? And maybe he was planning to steal the car and he was test driving it and it had no gas in it. ?????? I just started thanking the Lord after the fact, that he protected me and that I was tired and that was still thinking straight.
