How to beat a beggar’s lottery
A man in a t-shirt and jeans had to get into a car with his wife to buy some groceries in the Indianapolis, Indiana, area last week.
But it wasn’t until he was in the backseat that he noticed an old lady who had stopped to ask for a cigarette.
“I didn’t think she was going to smoke me, but she just looked at me and said ‘oh my God, what happened to you?’
I looked at her and I said, ‘I just lost my camera’,” the man said.”
The whole car went from silence to silence.
She said, [and I thought] ‘Oh my God’, then I looked back at the car and she was gone.”
The old woman was the owner of a store called “the Smiling Lady”, a former grocery store in the former American Indian School.
She gave the man a cigarette to buy and they went to the back of the store.
It took them about two minutes to buy all the groceries.
But then, they were confronted by the man.
“He’s trying to take my camera.
He’s trying all over the place, trying to get my camera,” the man told ABC News.”
You see the way he’s staring at me?
You know, the way his eyebrows are touching, it just just seemed to me like it was a pretty blatant assault on my privacy.”
But the old woman, who asked ABC News not to use her last name, said the whole thing was a misunderstanding.
“That was a big misunderstanding.
It’s the kind of thing that would happen all the time in the street.
I had just walked into this little corner store, and he had just pulled up and said, you know, ‘Can I take your camera?'”
The man said he was confused by the woman’s question.
“She was like, ‘What do you want me to do, come back to the store?'” he said.
“I told her, ‘If you want my camera, come with me.'”
The next thing I know, she is just going back to her car and leaving.
She never came back.
I just hope that that doesn’t happen to anybody else.
“It was unclear whether the man was trying to steal his camera or whether he had been robbed.
But the old lady said she had never seen anyone steal from her store before.”
It’s really not that bad.
It was a lot easier to do,” she said.
In all, the man had to pay $20 for the groceries, but he said he still couldn’t believe he had to put up with this.”
My wallet is pretty full.
I’ve just been through enough of this.
I’ll just get another wallet and carry on,” he said.”
I was just really angry that this happened.
That I had to go through this.
