Hi Sue -
I've been in lurker mode trying not to focus so much on my health issues. But this topic will coax me out of hiding.
I understand. I'll give you 4 gold stars for situational awareness. Your internal alarm was correct. Trust your instincts and don't look back. Don't give your keys to someone else, sort thru your wallet on a busy street where others are watching (and they are - I've scanned around when my wife or daughter has done that and they ARE being watched. hehe read them the riot act later in a nice way, but wish they were as aware as you are), or type in your PIN where others can see.
Yeah - you were right to feel uncomfortable about giving your keys to someone else and he crossed a line in asking for them. When I used to travel, I would put some bills into a front pocket so I never had to sort thru my wallet. Prevention is a good thing.
lol ... I remember the time when we took our youngest daughter and several of her friends to a ball game. They decided to go do something, and they all just left their purses by their seats. *sigh sigh sigh* So I went over and collected them all and brought them back to where we were sitting - next section over. No one questioned my walking over and picking up several purses. Couldn't believe it. Oh well ... life in a big city.
Continue to trust your instincts - they are good.
Hope everyone here is well - and that 2010 will be a better year for all of us.
