Last night, when I was walking towards my car, there was this Indian lady of about 50 who came rushing towards me. She was holding a plastic bag and one of her hand was in the plastic bag. I was like getting really terperanjat and was ready to put up a kungfu hustle fight when she pulled out what looked like a piece of colourful beaded cloth.
"Excuse miss, I have this piece of cushion cover here which would look nice on your car seat. Would you be interested to buy it?"
"No, (with a hard-to-flash smile) thank you". I said.
"Miss, I need some money" (she started talking very very fast) "I dropped my purse in the taxi just now and need some money to go home"
"Sorry, I'm not interested, Auntie", I replied. I mean, if you dropped your purse, how did you ever pay the taxi driver then??
"Miss, how about you give me RM5 then? I really need some money". She speaks good English!
"Auntie, why don't you go to the shop over there and ask the shopowner?"
"Shopowner? Ok lah"..... and she headed off to another direction.
I kinda pitied her. What if she's really stranded there. Wanted to offer her a lift also I takut. She could be a cheat for all I know. So, how?
