I almost was scammed at the grocery store!

Yesterday as I was getting in line to pay and a lady came up on the side of me in an electric scooter (from the store), and asked me if I had any cash or if I could pay for some of her groceries. Well first she started off telling me she just got out of prison (wth!), and she doesn't have anything, and is living under a bridge...I'm usally giving, but something told me "don't do it!", and maybe it had something to do w/her including she just got out of prison. So I lied and told her "Sorry, I barely have enough for me and my kids." I felt stupid saying that, but I just wanted her to move on...and so she said "Oh, ok." in a pis*ed off tone of voice.. lol! Sooo, then as I'm putting my groceries in the trunk, I hear her coming out of the store yelling at someone on her CELL PHONE, and then she starts loading her groceries into a brand new Chrysler convertible! The car didn't even have license plates yet!! WTH, I thought she lived under a bridge. I'm so glad I didn't give her money that freaking witch!! I really wish I would have taken her paper license plate number down and reported her!! So to all the generous people, be careful of the scammers!!

I always shut people down immediately. I don't give money to random strangers, I don't care how creative their story is.

Isn't it a shame that there's people out there like this when there are other's who are in true need of help? She is just a bad example and gives those who need help a horrible name. Dumb broad! 

I hope she falls off of this bridge she lives under.

 I'm a pretty non-confrontational person, but I would have had to say something to her.  I couldn't have just let that go.

I wanted to, I drove right by her, but she was too busy yelling at someone on her cell phone! She didn't even look my way when I was driving by, and I stayed there for awhile.
