Ok...Just Have to Vent a Little Bit

Some days I just wonder how dumb people think I am!

The other day I was at guess where...ok, wait for it............Target, surprise! By the way, I got a really good deal on a CARS book for the little one ($12 book for just $2)

Ok, back to the point of the story...some dumb guy gives me this sob story on how his jeep just broke down, he's trying to get to his brother's house, yada yada yada... you know how the story goes. Well, I say, "sorry, can't help you" as I'm loading my bags, son and purse in the car and keeping my eyes locked on this looser so he doesn't think he can pull a quick one on me. Luckily, he takes my answer for what it is and jogs to the next parking spot to retell the same sob story but with a few alterations to hopefully make a few bucks. As I'm all loaded and ready to go I see the man walk back to his jeep and get this, DRIVE AWAY! For someone who had broke down it sure started up pretty quickly and drove away with no problems.

Things like this make me sooooo mad. No, I didn't lose any money on the deal but this is why I don't give money to people and someday someone is going to ask for money who really needs it and I'm going to turn them down because of people like this.

WOW he's got some nerve! So many people fall for that though. I'm sure that out of the people who do this there are some that are telling the truth but it's people like that who make me not want to help!
