Crackhead speaks out as you are going in asking for money and you say no and then go in, prepay and come back out. You are the ONLY customer at the gas station. As you walk toward your vehicle you hear footsteps approaching fast from behind you and as you near your vehicle you glance in the side mirror and see said crackhead less than 5 feet from you coming up quickly from behind.
What is your response?
"Boom mah fucka yea"!

Seriously though, this happened to me when I noticed a dude on the side of a QT around 2300 not doing anything while I was walking in. As I walked out toward my car I glanced at him and kept walking as he was on his phone and looking down. As I got out of peripheral of him I heard foot steps behind me so I turn around and all the sudden the dude had an interest in the chain link fence around the new building next door. However my first immediate thought was shit, you're in shorts and sandles with no weapon to protect yourself.
