This morning when I pulled up in front of the station I did my usual visual scan of the area to see if there was anyone around I should be worried about before getting out of my vehicle. I didn’t see anything so I got out of the vehicle and shut the door. Suddenly, from behind, I heard a voice say “have you got a loonie for a coffee.” Well, I almost s*** my pants. Where in the world did this guy come from? Seconds earlier I didn’t see anyone on the street anywhere, yet here this guy was, right behind me. He was harmless and wasn’t rude, so I gathered myself and went back into my vehicle and grabbed a loonie. He thanked me and made his way down the street.
I guess I’ll have to start carrying around an extra pair of underwear in my glove compartment.
Even when I arrive safely to work every morning, sometimes the strangest things will happen in that 3 foot walk from the car to the front door!
