Had the fright of my life last night at my Shell station after work @1230 am! I had just parked my car up to refuel, got out my car, and whilst undoing the fuel cap, a voice from behind me said "excuse me", I literally jumped out my skin!! Turned around to see an old woman, about 5ft tall, in a long pink coat and sporting a beard!(I kid you not!!). She followed up with "could you spare me.....", before she could finish the sentence, I gave her a firm "NO!" Then I just carried on filling my car and went to pay, where she was standing by the counter window preying on the next person! I was about to have a rant at her after paying, as I worked to earn my money, what made her think I was about to give her a quid or two for nowt!? I was too tired and didn't have the time of day though, so went home and dived into bed!
