Have I been had?
Interesting view of how cynical you lot are.....or not......
Pulled into a Shell garage on the way home from work yesterday to fill up. As I was doing so, a woman pulled up behind the GT in a Saab with a baby in the back seat. She wound down her window to speak to me as I filled up. She told me she'd set out that morning without her purse and credit cards, and now realised she didn't have enough petrol for the 95 miles she had to travel to get home. Could I lend her anything I could spare? She said if I gave her my name and address she'd pay me back.
So....feeling charitable, and it's nearly Christmas, I gave her a tenner, went to the till to pay for my petrol, wrote down my name and address, went back to give it to her, and wished her a safe journey home. She was very grateful.
BUT......will I see my £10 again, folks???
