The guy that approached me in the parking lot at work on Thursday and asked for money, which he said he'd mail back to me... approached a co-worker of mine yesterday afternoon and told her that his car had broken down and that he was in need of a few dollars.
She called the office from her cell phone to inform those of us who park back there. Not wanting to be seen by this man again, I took a stroll out on the roof and sure enough, it was the same person.
At that point I decided that I wasn't taking any chances and I called the police to file a report. An officer came to the office this morning, gave me a case number and told me to call if I, or any of my co-workers, saw this man back there again. At least, he said, they could try to find out who he is, etc.
I left to go and get lunch today with the case number and my cell phone in my hand and didn't see the guy. It figures.
